What’s Straight Talk? It’s a US mobile phone service for those on a budget. The service lets you pick your own network from one of the leading carriers of the nation, i.e. AT&T, T-Mobile, Metro PCS, H2O, Cricket or any other GSM carrier in the world. However, if you want to leave Straight Talk, you’ll have to unlock your handset before it can be used with some other carrier. Below is how to unlock your Straight Talk iPhone.
Reasons to Unlock your Straight Talk iPhone
Let’s first discuss the reasons why people wish to unlock their iPhones. First, if you terminate the Straight Talk service, you might want to use the phone on a different network. The process requires making your Straight Talk phone SIM-free. That’s because carriers place a lock on the handsets to ensure customers fulfill their contracts and pay bills before they can switch over to another network.
Another reason to go for a Straight Talk unlock is international roaming. Unlocking the device will give you the freedom to use any local network as you engage in an international commute. If you travel every few months, it would be in your favor to get the device unlocked.
Straight Talk Being Unlocked by Default Is a Myth
When you buy the iPhone from Straight Talk’s shop, it will be locked on the carrier’s network. As a result, you might want to bring an unlocked phone to the provider instead of buying from them directly. Why? Because it’s how you can avoid being stuck with a locked device that is only limited to Straight Talk’s services. If you aren’t sure that Straight Talk is the right carrier for you, you shouldn’t do this.
