Unlocking & Flashing

Can you unlock my phone?” This is a common question our unlocking technicians at the Fixcell. What is unlocking a cell phone? Why are unlocked cell phones important to have? 

Now…Let’s make things simple. What is unlocking? 
There are 2 main cell phones technologies in the United States. 




Verizon, Sprint, Metro PCS, Alltel, And US Cellular, etc…, are on the CDMA Network and cannot be unlocked. CDMA cell phones do NOT use a SIM card. Therefore, if you have a CDMA phone, one option viable option, as opposed to unlocking, would be to flash your device. Flashing a device would allow for the use of the cell phone in other CDMA compatible Networks. For example, a Verizon Motorola Droid can flashed to use Metro PCS CDMA networks.


AT&T and T-Mobile are on the GSM Network. GSM cell phones use a SIM card. Therefore, if you have a GSM phone, FixCell will be able to unlock your cell phone. This will allow you to use your unlocked phone with any carrier on a GSM network; this includes countries, such as: Mexico, Canada, England, France, Spain, etc. Most countries around the world use GSM networks which allows for the use of your unlocked phone internationally.



You bought an iPhone from a friend. However, you have T-Mobile. Therefore, you cannot use the iPhone from your friend because it is locked to AT&T.

FixCell can unlock the iPhone and allow you to use your iPhone with T-Mobile.
