Hello,
Is there a way to unlock the factory locked (Verizon, etc..) Galaxy S5, and make it work with any phone network in the world?
Please tell me about all the possible ways. Thank you.

I bought my S5 from a Canadian carrier which had network locked the phone.

All it took to unlock my S5 was a simple unlock code and a sim card from an alternate service provider.

Depending on where you look, you can find unlock codes online for varying prices, I bought my unlock code from cellunlocker.net and it took me roughly 5 hours to receive the code via email from them. All I needed to do afterwards was input the provided unlock code and my phone was instantly network unlocked.

was it cheaper to buy from a carrier then buy a separate unlock code compared to other methods of buying?

What about Sprint? And does that mean it could be used with AT&T or T-Mobile?

Yes sometimes it was cheaper to get unlock code from other source rather than from a carrier. i try several times phoneunlockingshop.ca and find it cheaper then the carrier here in Canada
