The Phone Unlockers has released a new version of its software that will unlock a BlackBerry Storm handset.
The most advanced BlackBerry handset on the market so far, the BlackBerry Storm has a unique touchscreen interface and advanced software. It can now be unlocked to run on any network worldwide, regardless of which country it was bought from, by going to www.Blackberry-Storm-Unlock.com. Readers of Mobile Business are being offered a discount on the service.
Adam Goff, managing director at The Phone Unlockers, said that millions of mobile phones are sold every year and a large percentage of these phones are locked to a network, with many, such as the BlackBerry Storm, exclusive to one network.
“Whilst this is great for the network carrier, it’s not so great for the consumer, whose freedom of choice over which network they use is taken from them, despite the fact they paid a hefty price for their handset,” he stated. “All in all it seems a bit unfair; France has recognised this and has made it illegal for networks to lock handsets. However, the rest of the world is still allowing network carriers the right to lock handsets.”
The mobile phone unlocking industry is rapidly growing as more people become aware of the fact that they can unlock their phone, and that it is in fact legal. There are two primary methods for unlocking a phone, which are code unlocking and cable unlocking. Code unlocking is by far the easiest option, said Goff; all that is needed is the phone’s IMEI number, the handset model, and the network and country the phone is locked to. With that information a unique unlock code can be generated. Once the code is entered into the handset the phone will be unlocked and ready to use on any network.
The Phone Unlockers have branched out from helping individuals, to aiding dealers in unlocking as well. The company has set up an affiliate program with high commissions and discount codes for bulk orders and repeat customers. Dealers can try out the service and get 20% discount when they enter ‘mbmag’ when placing their order. Visit: www.thephoneunlockers.com.
