    Galaxy A01 metroPCS, how to unlock it??

    How do i unlock it without going thru metro??
    cuz this phone has been activated for less than 6 months, which metro requires minimum for unlocking.

    I have tried many websites for unlocking codes, but they are all ruthless and want money, which i can't do cuz i don't have a bank account.

    How do i get a free code to unlock my galaxy a01 out of metro??

    "ruthless and want money"

    So you have the money to buy a phone and pay for service, but cannot pay for an unlock code? Ask a friend or a family member to pay for it. There are no free codes available outside of your carrier and no procedures, such as rooting, will unlock it. So suck it up.

    Yes, rooting will allow unlocking. Rooting will give access to the filesystem to erase the carrier branding and the piece of data that tells the phone not to accept sim cards from other carriers.
    Why would you think rooting would not help with network unlocking ?? that is rediculous.

    I just want it to be unlocked with no hassle.

    I have gotten an impression that moderators on howard forums are rude ! Y'all infuriate me.

    I do not want to pay a stupid unlocking website, not just cuz i don't have a bank account, but i also am NOT GOING TO GIVE UP MY MONEY TO A STINKY JERK for something that shouldn't cost anything.

    Yes, rooting does give access to the filesystem, but that's not where the SIM lock information is stored.

    Take a chill pill or get off this forum if you cannot communicate in a civil manner.

    Rooting does not give access to the part of the phone where SIM lock information is stored. Google it, plenty of information is available on the subject.

    Thread is now closed and this discussion is done. There are no shortcuts. Pay someone to unlock the phone if you need it done sooner than normal.
    Just another day in paradise.....
