DTAC locked phone abroad

Recommended Posts

I have a Dtac network locked Huawei and can understand in Thailand that i can only use Dtac, no problem, it’s fine.

im in PH and i have tried every network and Dtac restrict it.

took it to a shop to unlock and they said its impossible.

i can’t use it, they dont even have Dtac here.

its driving me crazy not having a phone that works.

any ideas?

Quick solution, buy a new phone.

 

Slower (expensive) solution take the phone to DTAC and ask them to unlock it.

 

Have you looked up that particular model on the net, there may be unlock instructions (or try a different shop).

 

Sorry not to be more constructive.

Doesn't it work roaming with you DTAC SIM? Not going to be cheap but at least you'll have a working phone.

 

When you get back to Thailand visit DTAC to get it unlocked.

Seems that you can get free huewei unlock code online. Do some search on the process... XDA forum is a good place to get that information.

There would be phone repair shops that can unlock, not much use asking shops that sell phones as they want you to buy a new one.

By saying "tried every network" do you mean putting in another SIM from the PH ?

 

If you mean "no network access" could it be because you have not activated International Roaming prior to leaving Thailand or that DTAC do not have roaming partners where you are ?

 

Most phones sold by Thai providers are unlocked.

Too late now, but next time you travel enable roaming before you leave Thailand and it won't be a problem
