FAQ Samsung MetroPCS cell phone unlocking

There are two ways to unlock a Samsung from MetroPCS, with only one of the two options applicable depending on what type of phone you have:

1) By inserting an unlock code.
2) Using the Device Unlock App.

To find out which unlocking service you need to select to unlock your Samsung, it is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to perform the following checks BEFORE making your request:

Does the phone prompt for the unlock code when you insert a SIM card from a network different to the original? If it does, your Samsung can be unlocked from MetroPCS by inserting an unlock code. Select either our Standard or Premium Service.

If your phone doesn't prompt for the unlock code after inserting a non-compatible SIM card, open the Applications icon on your phone to see if MetroPCS has pre-installed the Device Unlock App. If they have, select our Samsung Device Unlock App Service to unlock your Galaxy cell phone.

Contact our customer support team for assistance prior to submitting your request if your cell phone neither prompts for the unlock code nor has the Device Unlock App.

If your contract with MetroPCS has ended and you have no outstanding bills, select our Standard Service.

Select our Premium Service directly if your cell phone has received technical support from Samsung, hasn’t been activated, is pre-pay or you have signed a fixed-term contract with the network.

A separate code known as a Defreeze Code will be provided at no extra cost with this unlocking service. This code is required to reset the unlocking attempts counter if the phone has run out of unlocking attempts.

If you are unsure of the current status of your Samsung, select our Standard Service or contact our customer support team for assistance.

We will issue you a full refund if we are unable to unlock your Samsung with either unlocking service.

Contact doctorSIM within the ten-minute window after you've submitted your request to cancel and receive a full refund. If you do not inform us within that time frame, will we be unable to return your money as the unlocking process is fully automated and incurs a cost to doctorSIM.

To unlock your Samsung Galaxy, you will need to resubmit your request selecting the correct service.

Our method of unlocking phones by IMEI is perfectly legal.

In fact, this method is the only official and recommended method by the phone manufacturers and network providers themselves as it won’t damage the phone or void the warranty.

We also guarantee that each of the transactions performed through doctorSIM is 100% safe.

All operations involving personal or banking data transmission are with a secure environment.

For more information on how our VeriSign, PCI DSS, and HackerSafe certifications look after your personal details, visit our section on Security and Protection.

There is no need to specify the exact model of your Samsung -whether your phone is a Z3, Galaxy Note 5 or Galaxy S6 Edge Plus- when you request your unlock code through doctorSIM.

All we need is the correct IMEI number which you can obtain by typing *#06# on your cell phone’s keypad.

However, if you need to know the exact model of your Samsung because you plan to sell it second-hand you can find out by using our Identify Model phone check.

Placing a cell phone on the blacklist is an additional security measure by the network preventing the phone from being used properly. Unlocking a phone does not remove it from the blacklist.

If you are unsure if your phone has been blacklisted, find out instantly with our Blacklist Phone Check.

If your Samsung has been reported stolen, lost or due to unpaid bills, you should contact MetroPCS to remove the phone from the blacklist. Once you have resolved the issue, you can unlock your phone with doctorSIM without any problems.

Yes. Once you’ve unlocked your Samsung, you will be able to use your phone on any network located in any country in the world.

Furthermore, you will never have to repeat the process as the phone will never relock in the future.
