Why Unlock Your Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
Some cell phone producers as well as cell phone service providers often lock their phones electronically.
Cell phone manufacturers often make some phones for specific countries. The phone is therefore programmed (locked) in such a way that it can only be used in those countries and not outside of those countries. If you therefore buy a phone that is only made for the USA market outside of the USA, you would not be able to use the phone there. There are also scenarios where you buy the phone in the USA, but you need to leave the country for studies, work or other reasons, once you cross outside of the USA, you would not be able to use the phone in such countries. You would thus have to unlock the phone before you can continue using it.
Cell phone service providers sometimes subsidize specific cell phones that are popular in their area of operation. They do this to encourage people to patronize their services. Based on this, they lock the cell phone in such a way that you cannot use it with any other service except their own service. If you however get attracted to another service provider, or need to help a friend who uses a different provider assess his sim, the sim of the other service provider would not work, except you unlock the phone.
