Step 3 – You can only be granted the unlock code if you provide the custom service representative the IMEI number of your phone. This is used by networks to generate a unique unlock code that is linked to the hardware of your Galaxy S8 or S8+. Normally it takes up to five days for the unlock code to arrive.
Step 4 – When you are given the unlock code, use it to be able to use SIMs from other networks on your locked phone. For that, you must first eject the current SIM from the SIM card tray of your phone and insert a SIM from a different network.
Step 5 – As soon as a new SIM card is inserted, prompt asking you to enter the unlock code will pop up. This is where you are supposed to enter the unlock code you received from your current carrier.
Step 6 – That’s all. You can now start using a SIM from a different carrier on your Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus. Enjoy!
