So what does unlocking your mobile mean?

Having an unlocked phone means you can use any SIM card from any network provider in your mobile phone. However, this is dependant on the band of the the phone such as, GSM phones will not work with CDMA networks. This would need to be checked but generally if you unlock a device in that country the phone will be unlocked and working with the mobile network in no time.

By unlocking your phone, you will no longer be stuck with the network you bought your phone from. This will give you the option to change providers, give your phone to someone on a different network or even sell your phone.

Why would I want to unlock my phone? 

Get a better deal – Paying way too much a month for your tariff, or paying too much for the data or minutes you don’t actually use? Unlocking your phone gives the option to move networks, change your tariff, and even switch to pay-as-you-go. This allows you to keep the phone you love while paying less for your contact.

Use your phone abroad – Many network providers charge extra for the use of your phone abroad which, if you're not careful, can be a very expensive mistake to make. However, if your phone is unlocked you can use foreign SIM cards to cut the costs while you're abroad. This is perfect for if you're going away long term, need to work while you're abroad or if you're travelling.

Use promotions – You are often able to pick up free SIM cards with amazing deals attached to them, if your phone is unlocked you can take advantage of as many of these as you want!

Selling your phone – Unlocking your phone means it's often much easier to sell as they can be used on any network which is perfect if you are wanting to upgrade phones but keep on the same network. When selling your phone, you normally find unlocked phones sell for more money.
