How to SIM unlock the Samsung Galaxy 71


The amazing A70 is improved upon in every way by the A71, which offers potent performance in a gorgeous design. The 6.7″ infinity-O display on the A71 uses AMOLED Plus color technology to give everything you do and see true-to-life color. This makes it the ideal location to browse all of the breathtaking images captured on each of the five cameras on the A71. However, upgrades don’t come cheap, and there may come a time when you wish to swap from one carrier to another.

To help you out, we’ve got a guide that talks you through how you can unlock your device with a free SIM unlock code from your service provider or use a third-party service like Android SIM Unlock.

Free Samsung Galaxy A71 SIM unlock code

It’s quite possible, that if you’ve been with your network for a given time you could already get your sim unlock code for free from your carrier. Each service provider has its own specific requirements, but they typically require the phone to be paid in full and that the device be activated on their network for 60-90 days. 

  1. Dial *#06# into your handset to grab your IMEI number. 
  2. Write it down, you’re going to need it later
  3. Contact your service provider and request your free SIM unlock code by providing your phone’s IMEI number
  4. If you meet the requirements, your Galaxy A71 SIM unlock code will be emailed to you within 2-3 days.
  5. Follow the SIM unlock instructions at the end of this article

Buy your Samsung Galaxy 71 SIM unlock code from a 3rd-party

If you’re ineligible for a free SIM unlock code for your Galaxy A71 from your carrier, you can still purchase the SIM unlock code from a third-part service like Android SIM Unlock. Even though it won’t be free, it is an excellent workaround, reasonably priced and you can typically get the code much faster than if you wait the 2-3 days the service providers take to provide your free SIM unlock code. 

  1. Dial *#06# to get the device’s IMEI number on your phone
  2. Write the IMEI number down.
  3. Go to Android SIM Unlock’s website
  4. Enter the IMEI number.
  5. Follow the instructions of the site on completing checkout.
  6. Once paid, you should then receive the unlock code either through SMS or email.

Now that you have your SIM unlock code, follow the simple steps below to unlock your device.

  1. Remove the SIM card from your phone and replace it with a SIM card from a different service provider
  2. When prompted, enter your SIM unlock code
  3. Congratulations! Your Samsung Galaxy A71 is now SIM unlocked. 

Do keep in mind, that unlocking your handset does not remove the contract that you have had with your previous carrier. So be sure to double-check all your paperwork when you’re making the switch to avoid any unexpected bills! Enjoy your new phone!
