Not sure what link you are referring to... easy to try out, no?

 

BTW - this is an old thread, it's always better to start your own with a detailed query if you want to be sure to get help in a reasonable time frame

Re: Free unlock codes for Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 edge

Not just an old thread, but also a largely unnecessary one.

 

Any phone you purchase through a Canadian carrier must be unlocked free by the carrier once it's fully "owned" (paid for) by the end user, as per CRTC Wireless Code.

 

Any new phone you purchase elsewhere already comes unlocked.

 

These "secret" unlock codes are only needed for locked phones which fall through the cracks - old devices, aftermarket devices, used devices, foreign devices.  Many such phones must exist, and many of them would be Samsungs ... but probably only for one or two more years at most before they die, break, or become too obsolete to keep using.

@Korth

This thread was started in 2016 - phones bought through a carrier were locked at that time. Carriers only started to provide free unlock codes when the according regulations were announced / came into effect December1/2017.

Even before December 2017 there were legit reasons to have your carrier phone unlocked before your contract was up - traveling abroad and using a local SIM must top that list.

 

Also, Samsung devices are known to lock to the network of the first SIM inserted, even if they are sold unlocked. It's in Samsung's best interest to help customers, who run into problems associated with this "feature", free of charge.

 

Considering that this thread is 6 pages long tells me that it is not unnecessary...

I've always hated the locked phone thing. It's just a big money grab and annoyence, I'm happy that big companies like Samsung are allowing users to unlock their phones. Hopefully one day there will be no such thing as a locked phone.

Hey @Zia_219,

Since last December, the Canadian phone companies are required to unlock the phones for free as long as u r still their customer.  Also, all new phones now are required to be unlocked or be unlocked for free on demand from the customer.
