It is a matter of time before excluding the policy of Sim locking from the national carriers marketing techniques. This kind of policy ensures the mobile network that the customer won’t migrate to another mobile network during the contract. After finishing the contract the mobile network has the responsibility to unlock,on their own costs, your device. In androidtalk.us opinion this is not a good policy because it enclosures the horizon of choosing the mobile network for the customers. For example if you go abroad you won’t be able to change the network and you will be forced to use roaming with colossal costs. In androidtalk.us next tutorial you will learn how to easily unlock your device: Samsung Galaxy S1 or Samsung Galaxy S2 or Samsung GAlaxy S3.
