How to enter the Unlock Code on your phone

A quick guide about entering a network unlock code on your phone if it’s not automatically requested

Most phones display the message “SIM Network Unlock PIN” or “Enter network lock control key” when a SIM from another network, different from the original network provider, is being inserted into the phone. And there is also a designated field where to enter the code.

But sometimes this message is not being displayed. Instead, your phone can show simply the message “Network Lock” or “Network unavailable” or “Insert correct SIM” with no field where to enter the code. In the eventuality of your phone not asking for the network unlock code, there are some methods that can be used in order to make the “SIM Network Unlock PIN” message to be displayed.
