2. Find a shop in County Westmeath who will unlock your Samsung mobile phone
This is a good option for people who really don't do technology. There are shops in County Westmeath who advertise that they can unlock a Samsung phone. Normally what happens is that you take your phone there, and leave it with them. You will need to give them access to your mobile so that they can test it when the phone is actually unlocked.
It's not possible to unlock a mobile phone immediately, so you will definitely need to leave the phone with the shop. If you're like me, you probably won't want to leave your mobile with a stranger for that time. Especially, because they have full access to all the information on it.

What about "Free" Unlock Codes?
It used to be that with older Samsung Galaxy phones (Normally the Galaxy S3 and older) it was quite easy to unlock your phone for free. You could “root” your phone then run a special app to generate an unlock code. Just a few years ago this was a reasonably safe thing to do with your phone. But now, it leads to a number of issues.
The least of which is that Samsung software, since 2012, regularly checks whether the handset is running an official version of their software and will lock the phone again. Worse than this though is that just like Jail-Breaking on iOS devices, the whole industry behind rooting phones or Jail-breaking, has been taken over by organised criminals who want to install malware on your handset. When you root your phone you are bypassing any security that Samsung has put on your phone and you're effectively allowing apps to have free access to all parts of your phone, including text messages, contact information and maybe even passwords. So it's really not worth it. I would recommend that you pay the small amount to get your Samsung Galaxy phone unlocked properly and keep the official Samsung software on there.
