An unlocked cell phone or tablet is not tied to any specific wireless carrier.
This means you can use it with any wireless provider, as long as they have a similar network.
(Purchase of a service plan and a SIM card required).
Most cell phones and tablets that use SIM cards are sold locked,
which means they are programmed to only work with the original carrier.
To get a device unlocked, contact the original wireless carrier.
They will usually unlock it for you as long as you meet the requirements.
How do I know if my phone is unlocked?
To test your phone, try borrowing a SIM card from a friend
who's on a different wireless carrier and insert it into your phone.
If you are able to make and receive calls, then your phone is probably unlocked.*
*boom! MOBILE can't guarantee that just because your phone works with a different carrier
it is unlocked and will work on our network.
