How to unlock Alcatel phones or Alcatel tablets? The easiest way to unlock a carrier-lock phone is using an official Unlock Code method.
Step 1: Submit your IMEI
With our direct connection to all the manufacturer databases, we instantly detect your phone model and network using just your IMEI number. No other unlock company can do this.
Step 2: We whitelist your IMEI
We mark your IMEI as unlocked in your manufacturer's database which is then synced with your network. This typically takes a few hours. You can continue to use your phone as normal during this time.
Step 3: Unlock your phone
We'll then email you to inform you that phone is unlocked - some manufacturers such as Samsung will require you to enter a code whilst others such as Apple will unlock immediately over-the-air using your Wifi or mobile data connection.
Should I Unlock My Alcatel?
Yes, you definitely should and there are many reasons for it. Firstly, unlocking your Alcatel means that you can switch carriers if you want to lower your monthly bill or take advantage of cheap SIM-only deals. Also, an unlocked Alcatel gives you the freedom to use your device while traveling. Fancy a trip to Tokyo this summer? Feel free to pick a Docomo SIM card at the airport and start texting and navigating with Google Maps - forget ridiculously expensive roaming charges.
How do I Unlock my Alcatel?
You can contact your current carrier and request an unlock. However, you need to meet certain requirements that may vary depending on the network you sign up for. This is why IMEI Whitelisting seems like a better approach.
IMEI Whitelisting (Unlocking) is the safest method to unlock a Alcatel and won't void your warranty. It’s basically the process of having your IMEI number whitelisted in the Alcatel database, so your Alcatel is recognized as unlocked. The coolest part is that it works remotely and you don't need to send us your shiny Alcatel. All you need is your IMEI number and we will do the rest.
The IMEI number is the 15-digit identity number for every phone and you can find it by dialing *#06# into the keypad.
