If the idea of unlocking your device yourself using a web service does not appeal to you, you can always turn to specialty stores that offer this service.
Usually, the technicians present can do it in front of you in just a few minutes.
As for the fees, they vary from one business to another. You can ask for an estimate of the costs before proceeding with the unlocking to avoid unpleasant surprises.

Go Back To Your Old Network
Regardless of the method used to unlock your device, replace your original provider’s SIM card to return to their network.
Automatically, the cell phone will return to its original number, and you will be able to make calls and send texts with the network of this provider.
The Price Difference Can Be Very Significant From One Device To Another
To find out how much this site charges to unlock your device on your network, you can ask them on the site by first selecting your phone brand and going to the Message section at the bottom of the page.
Good to know: If your device is not compatible with the network to which you want to associate your device, the company is not responsible, and you will not be able to go back and lock your device. Check compatibility BEFORE unlocking.
Also, certain updates from the manufacturer can reset the device to its initial state and therefore reactivate the original blocking. In this case, it will have to be unlocked again to use it on another network!
