Who are they

Unlock.ie is a 100% Irish unlock website.

They use a method called 'IMEI mobile unlocking', sometimes called 'Mobile Unlock Codes' or 'Mobile Phone unlocking codes'.

They provide online support via webchat, email and Facebook.

How it works

Step 1: Phone Information

They will ask for a few details about your phone, including:

  • Make of your handset
  • Model - don't worry if you aren't sure they show you a picture of the model you have selected
  • Country
  • Network
  • IMEI - (simply type *#06# into your phone and hit call to find out your IMEI)

Step 2: Confirm your order:

They will confirm that they are able to get the unlock code for your handset, they length of time this will take and how much it will cost. If you are happy with the estimated cost and time you add it to your cart and proceed with the order.

Step 3: Make Payment:

Payment can be made online using credit/debit card or paypal. Once your payment has been confirmed your order will be processed.

Step 4: Unlock your phone:

They will email you within the specified time with your unlock code. In the email with your unlock codes will be the complete unlocking instructions or a link to the instructions on how to use the code to unlock your phone. Your phone will then be permanently unlocked and able to be used on any network

How long will it take and how much does it cost

Once you have entered the required information they will let you know how long it will take to get your code and how much it will cost.
