About Cellunlocker.net

Based out of Vancouver, British Columbia, CellUnlocker.net is a website that allows customers to unlock their mobile phones via email, using the company’s fully automated o­­­­nline system.

CellUnlocker.net claims to be able to unlock 99% of all phones supported by major carriers and from manufacturers including Samsung, Apple, HTC, Nokia, LG, Motorola, Blackberry, and many more. In addition, the company also claims to provide their service in more than 180 countries around the world, and that their unlock codes are 95.5% accurate.

CellUnlocker.net states that, when compared to their competition, they provide the lowest prices and fastest turnaround times available, and that if they are unable to unlock a specific phone, then the chances are that no one can.

How CellUnlocker.net Works

When attempting to unlock a cell phone through CellUnlocker.net, the first step would be to verify that the company provides unblock codes for an exact phone manufacturer and model. After the phone has been located, simply select the carrier and country, and input the phone’s IMEI number, which can be obtained by entering *#06# on the phone’s keypad (additional information regarding IMEI numbers can be found here).

Once this information has been entered, customers will then be redirected to a final page, which outlines the price and estimated turnaround time. After contact and payment information have been submitted, CellUnlocker.net will email the unlock code and unlocking instructions for the specific model, carrier, and IMEI number provided at checkout, within the estimated timeframe.

Potential customers should keep in mind that if a specific carrier is not listed under their country and phone model, the unlock codes will not work, and no orders should be placed. The CellUnlocker.net site will still process the order, though no refunds will be given.

CellUnlocker.net Pricing

CellUnclocker.net does not provide flat pricing for all their unlocking services, which can vary depending on the phone model, cellular carrier, and country in which a customer is located. For instance, a U.S.-based iPhone 5 through AT&T will cost $29.99 to unlock, whereas the same model through Verizon can cost as much as $119.99. Other popular phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S4, can cost as little as $24.99 to unlock, if based in the U.S.

Soon after inputting their phone’s model and carrier, CellUnlocker.net customers will find out their total cost for unlocking. After this is complete and payment has been processed, the company claims turnaround times in as little as one hour, and as long as a few days, depending on the phone’s model.

When ordering through CellUnlocker.net, it’s extremely important to make sure a valid IMEI number is entered upon checkout. This is because the site will process requests that include invalid numbers, which will cause the unlock code to essentially be worthless, and no refund will be provided.

It’s also important to note that 100% refunds will only be granted if two conditions are met:

  1. A valid IMEI number was provided, including supporting carrier and phone model details, and all unlock attempts have failed when performed according to instructions, and
  2. You must provide video proof that demonstrates the unlocking attempt.

No refunds will be granted if an unlock fails due to reasons such as being hard-locked, or because prior attempts were made to unlock the same phone using other codes.

Important Information for USA Phone Unlocking Customers

Any phones purchased within the United States after January 26th, 2013 are no longer eligible for unlocking, as the procedure is now illegal. Unless a customer has prior approval from the associated service provider, CellUnlocker.net will not provide any type of unlocking service or support for phones purchased after this date. Furthermore, CellUnlocker.net states that they will not be held liable or responsible if a customer attempts to unlock a phone purchased after this date, and no refunds will be provided.

However, it’s important to specify that all services provided through CellUnlocker.net continue to be 100% legal in Canada.

Pros:

  • Claims to be able to unlock 99% of all phones supported by major carriers, in more than 180 countries around the world.
  • Unlock codes are claimed to be 95.5% accurate.
  • Ordering and checkout process is fast and simple, including the use of PayPal for payments.
  • If unlock codes do not work after all instructions have been followed, customers may be eligible for a 100% refund.

Cons:

  • No support for cell phones located in the United States, if purchased after January 26th, 2013
  • Extremely strict refund policy, which includes the requirement of videoing the unlocking process.

  • Horrible!

    • Ontario, Canada,
    • Jun 20, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    It took over two weeks to unlock my phone, which should have only taken 1-4 days.

    Horrible service. I bought a phone for my wife, and they ruined my gift. I don't understand how a company can be so negligent in providing their service. It would have been better if I just went to a local store.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

  • Code comes so fast, and it works

    • Ontario, Canada,

    I placed the order to unlock my Sony Xperia. It claims that the process will take one to two business days. But it did send it to me a few hours later. That was so surprising. And it worked, and now my phone becomes unlocked.

  • Worked well and received code in under 48 hours

    Pretty straightforward. I submitted the IMEI number and paid the fee. I received the unlock code 48 hours afterward. I put in my SIM and the phone asks for a code. I entered the code carefully, and it unlocked on the first try.

    It worked. It took four days, but two other companies could not unlock my iPhone at all. UnlockRiver and UnlockPanda couldn't unlock it.

  • Unlocked key worked!

    • Comox, British Columbia, Canada,

    I ordered an unlocking key on the weekend and within 24 hours had an email with the key. With that and the directions on the website, I was successful in unlocking an older Samsung smartphone. That phone is now working perfectly on a new/different cell network. Thanks Cellunlocker.net!

  • LG V20 unlocked

    I must admit I was nervous about this service. I have 3 phones to unlock so I decided to try my LG v20 from AT&T first. I paid $9.99 and it took less than 24 hours to receive the unlock code in my email. Still very nervous, I put the code in my phone and to my surprise, Boom, it works. I will never doubt you guys again. The next 2 phones I will be unlocking is a Samsung Galaxy s7 edge and an iPhone 7. Thank you guys for an awesome service you provide.

  • Services were excellent.

    • Ontario, Canada,
    • May 29, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    At first, there was a bit of a wait because of some issues Cellunlocker was having in retrieving my unlock code. I waited just over a week, but they kept in touch with me letting me know that they were still trying to retrieve my code and even offered a full refund as an option or to continue waiting. I decided to wait a little longer, and after a couple of days the code was sent to me and I was able to successfully unlock my device. Great service.

    Yes! They did it in an hour. The other prominent unlocker failed to do it. The reason they cited is bogus. These guys did it! They are professionals who do their job with great integrity and professionalism. They are awesome.
