How To Unlock the OnePlus 6 for Any Carrier
If you bought a phone on discount as part of a contract with your carrier, it is going to be locked.
What can you do to unlock your OnePlus 6 for any carrier? Here are a few of our own suggestions.
Before going to your carrier’s nearest store, keep in mind that you can unlock your phone by using one of many third-party services. Even though there are many of them around, they are very similar in what they do and how they do it.
First of all, you need to reach their website. To help you out with that and save you some googling time, here are a few of the most popular ones out there: Cellphone Unlock, UnlockBase, MobileUnlocked, Release My Code, and DoctorSIM.
There are people who use FreeUnlocks as well, but they will provide their services for free only if you take part in offers from their partner TrialPay. In case you don’t want that, they are going to charge you for the unlocking services.
In most cases it goes like this – after you visit the website you are prompted to provide payment so that you can get your unlock code. It is usually delivered to you by means of an email.
Depending on the device that you want unlocked, prices may vary anywhere from just a few bucks to over $50. If you’re up for this, always do business with reputable sites, as they may take your money and never send you the unlock code.
Reputable ones will also have excellent customer service that will help you with any code issues you might be experiencing. If this is too tricky for you, you still have the option of calling your carrier’s customer support and sorting things out over the phone or live chat support, depending on the carrier.
Depending on the carrier, there are a few things you will need to prepare to get your OnePlus 6 unlocked.
Keep in mind that in most cases this isn’t a really fast process, and it commonly takes a few hours before it’s done.
So, before you call them, make sure you have your phone’s IMEI number, account number and the name of the account holder, his Social Security number, and the completed contract.
In case you’ve purchased your OnePlus 6 through a carrier, it’s best to get in touch directly with them to get it unlocked for you, or you might try your luck by using one of the online third-party services.
