Just got off chat with Samsung. They no longer offer free unlock codes as they have authroized the carriers to do so. I am with Fido, and they want $50 for the code. I told them to forget it as I can get it done for $20 at any local cell shop.
Hey @StarLord, thanks for the update.
I started this thread a really long time ago and its definitely outdated/irrelevant now. A number of people took advantage of the free unlock codes back in the days when this was still relevant. Cheers.
Thank You, for the information. I got ahold of samsung and they unlocked my s7 for free, now i can use it with public mobile.
I just got samsung to unlock my s7 this morning. Maybe it was because i had purchased it at a samsung store? I was locked to virgin mobile. I'm now using it with public mobile!
Happy to hear that you got your phone unlocked for free from Samsung.
Last year, people had success getting free unlock codes regardless of where they bought the phone from. It was reported that telling the Samsung rep that you had bought your phone at Costco also guaranteed success.
I bought a Telus branded Samsung prepay from Bestbuy
Called Samsung up and they had no problem giving me unlock code since I was not under a contract / tab
That was just this week
Anyone try it to get a free unlock code from askunlock.net....is not exactly free,they say is a win win situation, but I dont know what to say...I registered and expect..to get.
Just received the unlock code for my Telus GS7 today. I used the online chat and pretty much received it right away.
