I want to unlock the phone as it shows in my settings that Network Lock is "ON" and SP Lock is "ON". Subset lock is off as well as CP lock..
I understand that I may have to root the phone. I see from most of the threads I have read in various places, they were posted back from 2010 and up to about 2013. I am not seeing anything that appears to be current in threads that tell how to do this. I am wondering if there have been updates or changes, or even if this phone can be rooted or unlocked.
I purchased the phone at full price from Walmart. Used Straight Talk as the provider, but now I want to simply change to another provider using this phone instead of the phone they want to provide. When I bought the phone, unlocked and a lot of other things meant nothing to me because I was totally unfamiliar with phones. I still do not use the phone too much. I am 63 and not savvy to most of this, but did want to make sure I know all the facts ( as much as there are any ) before doing anything, as I am on limited income now and sure can not afford to really mess up my phone. Can you tell me if there are more updated posts or news on how to root or unlock this phone.
