Hi, I'm wondering how I can get my S4 unlocked without having to pay extra just to use a different network. 

It's a new phone that's on the EE network, I bought the phone online assuming it'd be an easy process as S3 was easy enough to find details about. As S4 is a new phone and American posts come up too often.. I'm unable to find an awesome.

 

Much appreciated.

Thanks for the link! I have checked it out and read the comments, it seems promising!! I don't have the phone yet but will check it out once it comes Tuesday and will post feed back.... Do you know what may happen if the process goes wrong?

Hello the best thing to do is get codes from ebay or on www.gsmliberty.com they are cheap ebough.they take afew days to generate but well worth it for a factory unlock code.

The method will only work with phones using the old EFS folder,that is 4.3 firmware or earlier. 

If you look at the date of the link it is 2 years old. 

 

Only way to unlock more recent phones is through your network operator or an online unlocker  using your phone IMEI to generate an unlock code.
