Network unlocking a cell phone with doctorSIM means being able to enjoy the freedom of using your device on any compatible network carrier in the world instead of just one.
You will also save money on your monthly phone bills and avoid paying roaming surcharges while traveling abroad.
However, before submitting your unlocking request, make sure your phone hasn't been reported or blacklisted as the device won't work properly in the country of origin even though it has been network unlocked. Use our FREE Blacklist Check if you have any doubts whatsoever.
Reporting or blacklisting is an additional security measure placed on the cell phone by the original network operator due to loss, theft or unpaid bill. The network will only remove the phone from the blacklist once the owner of the phone has contacted the network to resolve the issue.
A common sign of a blocked IMEI is that you will be able to use the Internet and send text messages, but you won't be able to make any calls.
So, can doctorSIM unlock blacklisted phones or not?
Yes, but we cannot remove the phone from the blacklist. The phone will be unlocked for use on any network in the world but will not work properly until the phone's IMEI has been removed from the blacklist by the original network provider.
Once the phone has been removed from the blacklist, it will remain unlocked and work as normal on any network.
