Entel Provides Unlock Codes Online

Post by RuneTheChookcha » Sat Apr 14, 2012 10:49 pm

You can get your phone unlocked now by getting the unlock code "Código Liberación de Equipo" from:

http://personas.entel.cl/PortalPersonas ... 3871643106

This is done instantly. You have to enter your IMEI, RUT, phone #, email.

I have a free <BANNED WORD> 1616 (free for me as it goes with the pre-paid kit, 10.000 peso, and all 10.000 was applied to the balance). I did the Entel form today, entered the IMEI, they display the code on the same page. The unlock instructions are below the form, you have to enter your model. I did all as per the instructions, and the message from my phone was "Restriction OFF".

Claro can do the same as well. This is all part of the number portability system that Subtel implemented back in January of this year.

Nope, no charge, and they have full instructions on the website as well.

You can also get a code to unblock your pay as you go phone even if you don't have a RUT. Just put in a bunch of zeros.

I got it half way done, got my Código de desbloqueo and after that it didn't work for me.
What did I do wrong?
I also tried the version with la Simcard de otra compañía en el equipo que deseas liberar
but that also didn't work with the codigo.

:-(

under the new law they have to provide instructions on their web site or otherwise assist in unblocking your phone. That is all the carriers in Chile. Now, are they publishing anything that anyone can find?

Well, most of their web sites do not work for anything else, so not surprising that would be an issue.

I unlocked my Movistar Samsung Galaxy SI and SII, but the Movistar confirmation message said my phones were "successfully unlocked for companies in Chile." Does it mean it's not a full unlock and I won't be able to put a prepaid SIM from an operator in, say, the US?

I have searched the archives but I think it's mostly abroad->Chile and Chile->Chile that has been discussed so far.
