We operate a 3 stage unlocking process. The Stage 1 Checkmend is where we run a check to ensure that the phone is not reported lost, stolen, blocked or barred. We do this by checking your IMEI number.
In a small number of instances your unlock may run over the guideline times stated on the product pages. This can happen but it's nothing to worry about. Remember, if we can't unlock you we will provide you with a full refund.
