Unlocking Your Cell Phone, Unlocking Advantages
Dr. Cell Phone’s technicians can unlock your cell phone while you wait – generally in less than 15 minutes. “What does unlocking a cell phone do?” and “Why is it important?” are two common questions we get at the Dr. Cell Phone office in Frisco.
Let’s break things down first. There are two types of cell phone technologies in every cell phone model, from your 10-year-old Motorola to your brand new iPhone.
Several cell phone carriers, such as Verizon, Sprint, Metro PCS, Alltell, and US Cellular. are on the CDMA network. These cell phones do not use a SIM card, and therefore cannot be unlocked.
Cingular, AT&T, and T-Mobile, Cellular One cell phones are on the GSM network and can be unlocked by Dr. Cell Phone in Frisco. This means that you can switch between any carrier from around the world that takes a SIM card, once we unlock your cell phone for you.
Why Should I Unlock My Cell Phone?
There are several advantages to unlocking your cell phone. The major advantages are:
- You’ll be able to travel the world and use the same cell phone no matter where you are. All you’ll have to do is buy an international SIM card, and you can text or call from anywhere!
- You’ll be able to buy a cell phone (ex. iPhone) from a friend, even if your friend’s iPhone is locked to AT&T, and you have T-Mobile. This allows you to buy an iPhone from your friend for much cheaper and keep your current carrier.
Other Advantages to Unlocking a Cell Phone:
- You instantly raise the value of your phone. An unlocked cell phone is worth more because it can be used on multiple carriers.
- You can now pick the GSM carrier with the best rates at the best price for you.
- You only have to pay a single fee. Once you unlock your cell phone, you’ll never have to unlock it again.
