3 Mistakes You Must Avoid In Any Attempt to Unlock Your Phone
1- You need to be sure if the person unlocking the phone for you is good at unlocking phones. This is because that person might mistakenly lock the phone for you forever!

2- The IMEI of the phone must be correct. Thus; if you are supplying the IMEI of the phone, it must be the correct IMEI- this is because the IMEI determines the end result and supplying a wrong IMEI yields a wrong result. Also, if you're to unlock the phone by yourself, check carefully the IMEI.

Though the phone won't warn or alert you but, the phone would be locked forever if a wrong UNLOCK code is entered more than three (3) times.
