Service details for our SIM Network Unlock PIN code.

If you want to switch network on your mobile phone you will need some kind of an unlock code. For Huawei, Samsung, LG, Nokia, Motorola, HTC and Sony this is called a SIM network unlock PIN. Other names for this code include network unlock code (NUC), NCK or NP code.

Important: If for any reason your handset is requesting the PUK code please contact us first and we will advise you on the best course of action.

Whatever you may like to call it, the function of the code is the same. Once entered into the handset, this unlock code allows you to insert a SIM card from a different network and continue using your handset. The SIM network unlock PIN is not the same as a SIM PIN code.

What to expect when buying an unlock code from NetPal.

Firstly, it’s important to understand that each network and handset combination will result in both a different price and different waiting time. This is not something we can control. If you’re concerned about how long it will take check the ‘waiting times’ tab on this page.

Once you’ve placed your order we will email you with details of what to expect during the procedure. Once your code is ready we will also email it to you along with a link to our instructions page. If you’re not sure you can checkout our customer reviews or contact us using the form.

Different codes for different handset manufacturers.

Depending on which handset you have, you will receive either one or two codes. For example, Samsung owners locked to EE will receive both an NCK (unlock code) and MCK (defreeze code). The defreeze code is for resetting the number of times you can enter an unlock code.

Another example would be that Huawei unlock codes are much longer than other codes. Most notably, there is no 3 attempt limit like there is with other manufacturers. Get your SIM network unlock PIN from NetPal today. Our current unlocking service is for UK networks only.

UK networks this unlock service provides a code for.

All UK mobile phone networks can be services in one way or another. There are only 4 primary networks in the UK. These are Three, EE, Vodafone and O2. All other networks piggy back off of them. Tesco Mobile, Virgin Mobile and others usually fall under the big 4.

Watling times for your unlock code to arrive.

These waiting times can and do change on a regular basis so should be treated as guideline times only. Contact us if you require the most up to date information before you purchase.
