sup guys Kristen here and today I'm

going to show you how to unlock your

Samsung Galaxy s8 I just got his phone

straight from the factory and today I'm

gonna show you how to unlock it so as

you know there are two types of unlocks

first you have the passcode lock and

then you have the carrier of luck so I'm

going to show you how to do both of them

the passcode lock is in case you forgot

the 4 digit security code of your phone

and you don't know the passcode so I'm

going to show you how to bypass

activation screen so that you're able to

use your phone again and the second one

is a carrier unlock this is in case your

phone is currently locked to specific

carrier like AT&T or t-mobile and you

want unlock it to use it with a

different provider so once you have a

fully factory unlocked phone you will be

able to use it with any career worldwide

and your phone is going to be more

valuable so anyways if you are

interested on a carrier unlock go ahead

and skip to this minute and

for a passcode lock we're gonna start

right now so for the passcode lock you

have good news and bad news the good

news is that you will be able to use

your phone the bad news is that all the

information of this phone will be

deleted unless you have a backup

somewhere in your computer so all the

pictures contacts and everything will be

gone all right so let's start I'm gonna

switch camera so that you can see what

I'm doing with the phone all right so

grab your phone and you have to press

and hold these three buttons at exactly

the same time so that's the volume up

key the home button and the side button

if you don't have the side button you

can use the HOME key in case you have an

older phone but anyways when you see the

samsung galaxy logo you're gonna let go

and you're gonna see the android logo so

that's perfectly fine that means that

you were able to access this phone

system so we're gonna navigate through

this menu here scroll down using the up

volume up key and volume down key and go

where it says delete data factory reset

okay so you click confirm with the power

of key and then we're gonna click yes

perfect now scroll down and click where

it says reboot system now okay so your

phone is gonna restart it's gonna take a

few seconds or a few minutes and once

your phone is on you're gonna see the

welcome screen and your phone will be

fully unlocked so as you can see here I

was able to access my phone and boom it

is now fully unlocked and that's it now

you should be able to use your phone

without any trouble alright so for the

carrier unlock you only need your phone

a computer and a SIM card that's all you

need to unlock your phone is gonna be

very simple now there are a few ways to

unlock your phone and I'm gonna try to

explain them as clear as I can basically

there are three options first you can

take your phone to a local repair shop

and they might unlock it for you it will

take a few days and it should cost

between 50 to 150 dollars so it can be

quite expensive the other option is to

ask your provider to unlock it for you

sometimes they will do it for free but

it depends and some cases they give you

a lot of bots like you need to own your

phone for at least six months you need

to be out of contract and your phone

needs to be fully paid and cannot be

blacklisted so I'm gonna show you the

simplest way to unlock your phone all

you need is a computer and your phone

and that's it so I'm gonna show you how

to do it is very simple we're gonna do

it together

step-by-step okay so I'm gonna switch

camera so that you can see what I'm

doing here so first go ahead and grab

your phone and we're gonna get the IMEI

number of the phone so we're gonna dial


zero six hash and as you will see the 15

to get I'm a number will appear in your

screen so this is very very important

guys we're gonna use this number to

generate the unlock code to unlock this

phone okay so keep it somewhere close

now we're gonna switch to a computer go

to your internet browser and then you

have to go to the website

unlockriver.com in this website we will

create the unlock code to unlock this

phone so we're gonna start by selecting

the original carrier that your phone is

currently locked to this is a place

where you bought it so for this example

I'm gonna use my carrier AT&T United

States that should be the carrier that

your phone is currently locked to

alright then scroll down and you click

where it says Samsung because we're

gonna be unlocking a Samsung phone and

then select the right model so just for

in this case I have my Samsung Galaxy S

8 plus so I'm gonna select that one

perfect now the most important part here

you have to write down the 15 digit IMEI

number so make sure you write it down

100% correct there's a mistake here this

method will not work so make sure you

use only the first 15 digits beautiful

okay we're almost done so the last step

is to write down your personal email

where you want to receive your unlock

code because it will send you your

unlock code to this email now if you

scroll down you will see the price to

unlock your phone and the average

delivery time to get that unlock code in

your email anyways we're gonna click

reset unlock now and on the following

page you will see a screen just like

this this is basically a summary of your

order read everything here there's some

information you need to consider before

unlocking your phone but don't worry

nothing's nothing serious nothing really

to worry about so once you have done

everything go ahead and place your order

and I'm gonna show you how the email

will look like after you receive it

after like 1 or 24 hours or I don't know

it depends on every case but anyways I'm

gonna show you my email alright so let's

go to my gmail and as you can see here

my latest email is from lock River and

it says samsung unlock code ready

perfect that's the email you want to

wait for anyway so let's open the email

and you will see that it says sure

instructions and how to enter this

unlock code it says that the code is

ready but the most important part is the

actual unlock code so this right here is

what we're gonna use to unlock this

phone now keep in mind that this code

this exact same code will not work for

your phone because it only works for one

specific phone based on your IMEI number

so anyways I'm gonna show you how to

enter this unlock code it's super simple

so I'm gonna

switch cameras back to the phone so make

sure that your phone is fully turned off

and you're gonna have to insert a

non-supported SIM card my phone is from

AT&T so I'm going to use a different

provider like t-mobile Telus or any

other so anyway so we're gonna go ahead

and search the SIM card in and once your

phone has detected that you have

inserted a non-supported SIM card you

will require you to enter this unlock

code so I'm just gonna go ahead insert

it here and we're gonna power on the

phone so after a few seconds you will

see the screen requesting the network

unlock code so we're gonna go ahead and

insert this unlock code here make sure

it is 100% correct and then you're gonna

hit where it says unlock perfect sim

network unlock successful that means

that the code was accepted and now we

have a fully factory unlocked phone now

your phone is gonna restart it's gonna

take a few seconds so once your phone is

on you should get a full signal of your

new carrier all right guys so there you
