Unlock it through your carrier
If you are on a post-paid plan your phone is most likely locked. Post paid plans come with a contract where you agree to use their service for a given amount of time. While being on their contract you can’t use any other network service. If you would like to end the contract you would have to pay a termination fee, which is expensive. In order for you to be eligible for unlocking your phone by your network service provider – you would have to meet a lot of criteria given by the network, one of which is that your contract is finished. And even if the network agrees to unlock your phone – they can still ask for a service fee that is more expensive.
Unlock it at your local phone store
Most phone repair shops, used phones stores and places that offer mobile services can unlock your phone too. It’s usually cheaper then using your network because you don’t have to pay any additional termination fees. But the problem is that sometimes there’s no such store in your area so you would have to pay a lot for travel expenses. Some places don’t even offer unlock codes for newer models like the S6 & S6 Edge.
Unlocking your Galaxy S6 will give you a lot of benefits. The most important one is that you will be able to use your phone on any possible network from any location around the world. Additionally, you will be able to remove the pre-installed apps from your carrier and get faster updates.
