How to Unlock Your Phone

if your phone is on the list. If it is, then good news! You don't need to send your phone
to us. Simply complete the form and we mail a programmed
unit to you.

The unit we send you is a
very clever device. It is wafer thin, and fits between
your SIM and the contacts on the phone (pictured at the top of
In simple terms, we have
programmed the unit to trick your phone into thinking that the
SIM you are using with it is an officially approved SIM.
It is easy for you to insert
the Smart SIM unlock overlay card
into the phone - nothing sticks out or in any way interferes
with your phone's appearance or normal operation.
You need to cut a notch out
of your SIM to make space for the Smart SIM, but that is easily
done with a razor blade or Exacto knife. You can see an example of a SIM

SIM overlaid on it.
You can see an example, in
the second image, of a SIM that now has the Smart SIM overlaid
behind it - there is a little piece of the Smart SIM which

How Long Does it Take
We have two service options.
With our regular service, our promise is that we'll
program one of these overlay units and have it on its way back to you within
a business day of receiving payment. We send your phone back to you via USPS First Class
Mail, with Delivery Confirmation, insurance, and online delivery
confirmation for your
reassurance. If returning to an international address, we
send via Air Mail.
If you're in a hurry, or if
you do not have a US postal address, our
Express service may be better for you. Depending on when
we receive your order during the day, we'll endeavor to program
a unit for you the same day and send it back to you USPS Express
Mail, which usually takes only one day to get to your address.
This also includes insurance and delivery confirmation.
If you have any problems at
all with the unit in your phone, send us your phone and the unit
and we'll install it for you.
There's no extra charge for
this, and you have a month from the time we ship the unit to you
to activate this guarantee.

phone book data on your SIM card. This means if you lose your
phone, you don't lose all your phone numbers. If you change from

some country-specific pre-paid cards), you can copy your phone
book to all these different SIMs.
