Important: all 'AndroidX' (where X is a number) phones including this model need to be rooted for unlocking. For most versions this happens automatically, however somethings it needs to be done manually. Versions newer then 4.2.2 must be done manually and sometimes version 2.3.6 needs to be done manually as well. For more info please contact support for instructions or check Root manuals

Hardlocked phones
Some provider (e.g. Telcel, some Rogers models) hardlock their phones. this means they disable the unlock option of your phone by changing the phone software. In many European countries this is illegal but in other parts of the world it is not. To fix this problem you need to flash your phone with a non branded firmware.

These phones only show a 'dismiss' button when you start the phone with another simcard inside:

For help on flashing the phone contact support.
