    Possibly - but I never trust those listings
    Have you ever used them?

    Depends on feedback ratings... If it's a big seller sure

    Just did a quick search looks rather pricey to unlock a S4 oO

    Follow steps carefully and correctly. Remember, this could damage your device.
    I accept no responsibility for any of the below

    Depending on what android version/modem you have (ME2 required)

    Dial *#0011#
    Press menu and tap back
    press menu again and tap key input and enter 1 and press ok button
    press menu and tap back and you should be in the ServiceMode main menu

    Tap 1 for UMTS
    Tap 1 for Debug Screen
    Tap 6 for Phone Control
    Tap 6 for Network Lock
    Tap 3 for PERSO SHA256 OFF
    Go back to Menu by pressing menu then back
    Tap 6 for Common
    Tap 6 for NV Rebuild
    Tap 4 for Restore Back Up

    The device will freeze, black screen, Blue LED Light, Menu and Back key ON. Device will now reboot

    You may only get so far, if so then this will not work.
    You could look at rooting/flashing the phone so you can flash the ME2 modem and then use an unlocking app but again further research is required (google it)

    Just use eBay that's what I did. Mind you the servers for Samsung Unlock codes are down at the moment until 3rd January. I paid for mine and got a refund by the guy as the servers are down. You'll have to wait until 3rd Jan in order to unlock any Samsung device. Then I guess they will be bombarded with requests so probably take a few days to get the request.

    since online unlocking is out of order
    I wonder what manual unlocking ways are out there

    This is the guy I used. He responds quickly. Bought last time and within a few hours got the code. Some people say within 20 minutes. Sometimes can take up to 24-48 hours though.

    Oh yeah sorry the global unlock is only affecting certain models. As per his listing.


    THERE IS CURRENTLY A GLOBAL SERVICE LOSS UNTIL 3rd JAN 2015
    THIS SERVICE IS HAVING A LOW SUCCESS RATE AS A RESULT
    EFFECTED MODELS ARE S5/NOTE4/ALPHA
    IF CODE IS NOT FOUND YOU WILL BE REFUNDED
    PLEASE IGNORE BELOW PROCESSING TIMES UNTIL
    NORMAL SERVICE RESUMES ON 03/01/2015

    I got refunded twice. Honest seller and pretty much 100% feedback less one guy who didn't read the full advert first. He uses two way to do the unlock first one is cheaper (as above) the other one slightly more expensive.

    This listing states Vodafone UK network only - I am on Orange
    Does he do other networks aswell?

    Ebay about £10 I've used it, worked perfectly
