About Us

Who we are

The Company

Founded in 2007, doctorSIM is an Internet-based technology company that provides a wide range of savings solutions for the cell phone industry and the premier unlocking company in the world. Our mission is to support the user by providing clarity in an industry dominated by chaos and a lack of transparency.

In short, providing the solutions necessary for the user to take full control of their cell phone from the network providers and phone manufacturers.

doctorSIM provides phone unlocking services which allow users to use their cell phone on any compatible network in the world. Freedom to choose network carriers has multiple benefits primarily saving money in the long run.

Complementing these unlocking services are IMEI phone checks, top-up services for networks located in over 200 countries, comparison tools for managing and calculating savings on monthly phone bills and repairs for all phone manufacturers.

The Team

The people behind doctorSIM are a solid team of experienced professionals with a number of successes (and failures, of course!) on their backs. All of them have started or co-founded one or several startups and are active entrepreneurs, mentors and speakers.

Executive Team

  • Hugo Meana, CEO & Co-Founder
  • Lidia Meana, COO & Co-Founder

Our Philosophy

Our work ethic is based on 3 factors:

  • Create extremely useful services using the Internet as the main transactional medium.
  • Provide solutions to existing customer-related issues.
  • Create these solutions guaranteeing profitability and a sustainable business model.

At the forefront of our minds is a full commitment to producing services of the very highest quality as a roadmap to maximising customer satisfaction.


With doctorSIM’s ambitious nature and rapid progress, it did not take long before we gained the attention of various corporations and investment groups. doctorSIM is currently funded in part by Carty Venture Partners and a group of independent investors.

Carty Venture Partners is a multinational company specialising in innovative projects in the computing, telecommunications, Internet and consumer industries.
