It may be true that since mobile phones were first commercially available, the price has dropped relative to income. The Motorola DynaTAC, an unattractive, largely useless, brick-like handset, was one of the first mobiles available and cost around £2800 each. But, recently, as consumers demand more from their mobile devices, prices have begun to creep up. The iPhone 11 Pro 512GB will set you back £1500, that’s 5% of the average British citizen’s salary. Obviously, this price makes it difficult for consumers to purchase devices outright or keep up with the latest were they forced to. All of this is a big problem in an age where ‘keeping up with the Joneses’ is a more popular philosophy than ever before.
In the spirit of capitalism and to keep customers happy, networks have devised a cunning plan which means manufacturers are able to keep nudging up the price of their products and regular consumers are able to afford them as and when new technology is pumped out. It is now more popular than ever, with the majority of mobile users in the UK being tied to one, for customers to take out monthly contracts tied to a particular network.
While monthly contracts seem great at the time, they’re not all their cracked up to be and often leave people in a less than ideal situations months down the line. We will talk about exactly why this is in just a moment, but before that, if you’re stuck with an iPhone which is locked to a network, don’t panic. DirectUnlocks, a tried and tested UK company, can unlock iPhone for you within 24 hours all from the comfort of your own home.
What’s the problem with being tied to a network?
If your device is locked to a network, your usage options are limited. The market for SIM-only deals is better than ever, for less than £10 a month, device owners can purchase an ample amount of data, minutes and text from any number of competing providers. However, if your device is locked to a network your only option is that particular network. So if you’ve bought a second-hand iPhone that’s locked or have paid for your own device and want to broaden your usage options, unlock is the perfect option.
Traveling with a locked device can be a nightmare, roaming charges can cost you a fortune. Whether you plan to travel once a year or frequently for business or pleasure, you will save yourself a pretty penny by unlocking your iPhone. When you unlock your iPhone you can easily purchase a local SIM from wherever it is you’re travelling to and benefit from cheap local usage.
An unlocked phone is worth 20-30% more in the second-hand market as well as being attractive to more potential buyers. When your device is tied to a network, the only people who can buy that device are those willing to move to that network. If you plan to sell your phone, unlocking your device for a small fee will increase the amount you’re able to sell for and likely mean your device sells quicker.
