How To Unlock Samsung Galaxy S7 Active | AT&T | Step-by-step!

what's going on guys Christian here and

today I will be showing you how to

unlock your Samsung Galaxy s7 active so

that you can use it with any GSM carrier


in this case my phone is currently

locked to AT&T but I want to unlock it

to use it with my t-mobile SIM card so

we're just going to follow a couple of

steps to unlock this phone is very very

simple I will tell you exactly how to do

it step-by-step we will do a factoring

lock which means that your phone will be

permanently unlocked from the network

don't worry it is completely legal your

phone won't be damaged and in fact there

are only positive things and you can get

out of this unlock now keep in mind that

locking the phone is not free so we will

have to pay a small amount to unlock

this phone but trust me guys in my

opinion it is well worth it to have a

fully factory unlocked phone because you

can use it worldwide with any GSM

carrier and in case you want to sell it

you can set it at a higher price if your

phone is unlocked alright so let's start

the first step is with your phone's IMEI

number simply dial star hash zero six

hash and your IMEI number will appear in

your screen this is very very important

keep in mind that we will use only the

first 15 digits okay so keep it super

close and switch to the computer so once

you're in your computer go to the

website unlockriver.com it's in the

description of this video as well

alright so once you're in this website

we will request the unlock code to

unlock this phone so we just have to

fill in here the information about the

phone we wish to unlock so if you see

right here on the right hand side

there's a form which we need to fill in

according to the phone we want to unlock

so first select the original carrier my

phone is currently locked to AT&T United

States then select the brand we're going

to select the Samsung because this is a

Samsung phone and then select the right

model so this is a Samsung Galaxy s7

active and as you can see they have

different model different services a

fast service and a slow service we will

select the fast one

and lastly enter your IMEI number that's

the number we recently got so make sure

you enter it 100% correct if there's a

mistake here this method will not work

so double check it okay and the final

step is to enter your email where you

want to receive your unlock code so just

go ahead and write out and here your

personal email they will email you your

unlock code to this email so make sure

it is 100% correct

perfect now if you scroll down you will

see the average delivery

time to get the unlock code in your

email and the price to unlock your phone

we're going to go ahead and hit unlock

now alright perfect so in the following

page you will see a summary of your

order so read everything here and make

sure everything is 100% correct and once

you're done just crawl down and place

your order I'm going to go ahead and

place my order is going to take a few

seconds or a few minutes so I'll be back

once everything is done alright so if

you did everything correctly you will

see a screen confirmation just like this

it basically says that your order was

placed and received successfully and now

you just have to wait until they send

you your unlock code

to your email now the delivery time may

vary as I said if you check down here it

says one to three business days but it

may vary on every case depending on your

phone brand model and carrier so they

will send you an email after you have

waited the estimated amount of time and

they will send it to this email to your

email and I'm going to show you how the

email will look like so we're going to

go to my personal email account and I'm

going to show you how the email will

look like so let's go to Gmail because I

use Gmail alright so you will see that I

just got this email from unlock River

now if you open the email you will say

your unlock code is ready and they will

include instructions on how to enter the

unlock code and it will include the

actual unlock code so this right here is

the most important part this is the lock

code that will unlock your phone now

this is a unique code it is calculated

based on your AMA number so there's only

a unique code for every phone so I will

show you how to enter this unlock code

into your phone very simple so power up

your phone and insert a non-supported

SIM card for example my phone is

currently locked to AT&T so I'm going to

insert a SIM card that is not from AT&T

in this case I'm gonna insert a t-mobile

SIM card because I want to use my phone

with t-mobile so I'm just gonna go ahead

and insert it and power on your phone so

once your phone is on it will detect

that you have inserted a non-supported

SIM card and it would require you to

enter an unlock code in order to use it

with that SIM card or with any other

carrier so you have to enter this code

only one time on your phone will be

permanently unlocked so you will get a

message like this sign in Poli SIM card

or sim not supported so go ahead and

slide the screen or swipe to unlock and

then you will have to enter your unlock


does the unlock code you receive in your

email so keep in mind that this is a

unique code and will only work one time

so you only need to enter this code one

time so let's go ahead and insert the

unlock code here all right so after you

have entered your unlock code simply hit

where it says unlock and you will get a

successful message saying that your

unlock code was accepted network unlock

successful perfect guys now we have a

fully factory unlocked phone and is

ready to be used worldwide with any GSM

carrier as you can see here I'm using my

t-mobile SIM card on an AT&T phone that

means that this phone is now fully

factory unlocked all right guys that's

all for today thanks for watching see

you guys later

take care
