“SGS 2 SIM Unlock Code Finder” Frees Your SGS 2
One of the biggest hurdles and constant “inconveniences” that we have always faced at xda-developers is that there is a need to have our devices SIM unlocked so that we can rip the benefits of getting a new device without having to jump hoops with other companies, sign up new contracts, or flat out rip the benefits of a new device with tools that may utilize the network capabilities of your carrier a bit better altogether. In fact, many online companies have emerged from our site and either charged a fee for the SIM unlocking services they offered, or had some sort of deal with xda members. The SGS2 is one device that, despite it just coming out, it already got involved in this. Luckily, thanks to the efforts of XDA moderator Chainfire, there is now a simple and free way of getting this famous code without having to go through a carrier or other 3rd party companies. SGS 2 SIM Unlock Code Finder is based on the work of XDA member Odia. In essence, the program will look in your device for the unlock code and give it to you. Once you write it down, simply turn off your device, insert a different SIM card (from a different carrier) and enter the code when prompted. There is a possibility that this code may not work. If it doesn’t, DO NOT run the program again as this may freeze your device. Should a “freeze” happen, the program comes with a tool to find a code that will “unfreeze” it. However, it is not guaranteed to work. All in all, use this at your own risk.
Please leave some feedback for the devs whether this worked or not.
Galaxy S2 SIM Unlock code finder will find the SIM unlock code for your device, or the unfreeze code. It’ll take a few minutes to run, but you should end up with the code to SIM unlock your device. If the code doesn’t work, don’t keep trying it !. You may end up with a freeze. In that case, the program can also find the unfreeze code, but if the SIM unlock code is wrong in the first place, maybe so is the unfreeze code.

Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
