Many users may find that the Samsung Focus can come locked to one specific cell phone carrier. In fact this can be the case with many different phones. Therefore, we have decided to write this guide on how to unlock your Samsung Focus so that you can start using it with the network of your choice!
Once unlocked a Samsung Focus will work on any SIM card based phone network, such as AT&T, T-Mobile or Sprint PCS. In order to fully unlock your Samsung Focus you will need to an unlock code. This unlock code will remove the SIM lock that comes on many SIM based Samsung cell phones by default.
Getting an unlock code can be free often if you call up your Samsung Focus phone carrier’s support line. Ask for an unlock code and in exchange they will requeset your phone’s IMEI number. You can get this IMEI number simply by typing *#06# and hitting enter on your keypad. Your Samsung Focus’s IMEI number is used to calculate your Samsung unlocking code.

Steps To Unlock Samsung Focus Using An Unlock Code
1. Power on your Samsung mobile phone with an unaccepted SIM card inserted.
