Samsung is not only one of the top smartphone manufacturers in the world, but also one of the most valuable brands of 2015, according to a report created by Statista, one of the leading statistics companies on the internet, used by companies like Mashable and Forbes.
They rank second in this statistic, after Apple, with a staggering brand value estimated at $81.7 billion. Not to be mistaken with brand equity, a phrase used in the marketing industry to describe the value of brands based on the implication that the owner of a well-known brand name can generate more money than from products with a less well known name, brand valuation is the estimation of a brands total value.
Brands help shape perceptions and, therefore, purchasing behavior, making products and service less substitutable. They are also a great indicator for the quality of their products, which means that you’re in great company with your brand new Galaxy Note 5.
Now, let’s see how you can unlock it and use it at its full potential. If you’re wondering what I mean by “full potential”, take a look at these 4 very important advantages unlocking can give you:
Advantage #1: If you’re from Europe and can’t wait to get your hands on a brand new Galaxy Note 5, you can order it, unlock it and use it with your current carrier.
Advantage #2: If you want to switch to another network provider to benefit from a better cell phone plan, you have the freedom to do so.
Advantage #3: If you want to avoid absurd roaming fees when you travel, you can simply use a local SIM.
Advantage #4: If you want to sell your device to upgrade to a newer model, you can get more money for it, if it’s unlocked.
Options of unlocking your Samsung Galaxy Note 5
Now that we’ve established how unlocking your phone will benefit you, you should know what your options are going forward. You can go to your current carrier, because they’re obliged to unlock your phone, theoretically. Practically, you’ll probably have to wait until your contract expires.
Next, you could go to a local phone repair shop and leave your phone with them for a few hours or a day. They will unlock it for you, but using hardware which can harm your device.
Last but not least, you could access a website or app from the comfort of your own home, from the office or a vacation. UnlockUnit.com and UnlockScope.com have great reviews from their customers, that’s why I chose UnlockUnit when I unlocked my phone.
How to unlock Samsung Galaxy Note 5 by code
UnlockUnit can help you buy the unique unlocking code attributed to your Note 5 while it was still in the factory, before it was shipped out to a distributor. They deliver it to you by email in under 6 hours and even have a discount for the Galaxy Note 5.
Here’s what you have to do to unlock your phone today:
1. Go to UnlockUnit.com and fill out the order form with a few pieces of information: the brand and type of your phone, country and network you bought it from, your IMEI (which you can find out by calling *#06# or going to Settings > More > About device > Status) and your email address.
2. Choose your desired delivery time from 3 available options, and its respective price. Then, make the payment through either credit card, PayPal, Skrill, Moneybookers or Bitcoin.
3. Soon after, you’ll receive your unlock code by email. Then, insert a SIM card from a different network provider in your phone and you’ll be asked to “Enter Unlock Code” or “Sim Network Unlock Pin”. Enter the code, and the message “Network Unlock Successful” will be displayed.
If your phone doesn’t ask for the unlock code and it only says “Network Locked” then, don’t worry. It happens. Simply dial: #7465625*638*#, and afterwards insert the code. Congratulations, you can now use your Note 5 with any SIM, from any carrier in the world!
