Unlocking my Phone    


Why would I need to have my phone unlocked?

A non-Lucky Mobile phone needs to be unlocked and compatible with our network before we can activate your Lucky Mobile SIM Card. If you bought your phone from another provider, there's a good chance that it's locked. You will need to contact your previous provider to have them unlock your phone.

If your phone is currently locked to a Canadian provider, they will unlock your phone, free of charge, upon request.
