Q: What is unlocking?

A: GSM and AWS wireless providers lock their cell phones to ensure that they will only work with their network. Unlocking allows you to use your current GSM or AWS mobile phone with other GSM service providers (your phone will no longer be “locked” to one network). This means that you will be able to use your cell phone with other wireless providers, including prepaid and overseas, by simply inserting a new active SIM card inside it!
