If you have an iPhone device that was purchased from a specific carrier, there is a high chance that your phone is locked to the network, especially if it was bought using a cellular contract. Having a locked device can be a big challenge for a lot of users as it can become a headache while trying to switch carriers or simply sell it. Luckily for you, UM has developed a network provider unlock tool that will allow you to use any Sim Card worldwide.
The carrier lock is a feature introduced by wireless network providers to prevent the usage of their phones on a different network. This is a common practice from carriers all around the world and we will explain everything you need to know.
The way carriers are capable to lock their devices to their network is made by an agreement with the manufacturer and the company. As you might be aware, your phone has a unique number called IMEI number. This unique number makes it possible for carriers to prevent the usage of their phones on a different network.
The reason behind carriers locking their devices is very simple, as you might have noticed, in most countries you can purchase a new phone at a low price as long as you have a phone contract. This tactic has been around for many years and it is a great marketing strategy, this way carriers can be sure that their phones can only be used within their network.

If you still decide to take this path, you will likely have to go to a carrier location and ask the staff to start the process for you. You might be asked to support your application by providing extra paperwork, at the end they will decide if they grant you the unlocking service or not.
