It would save a lot of money, and it would be a nice service to sell.

Here in Australia most Mobile Phones are not Locked anymore when you buy them , or if on a Contract.

3-4 Years ago when my Contract ended { 2 Yrs } you simply contacted them for the Unlock Code and enter the Digits to do so.

Some also had a Webpage Link that you simply enter your IMEI and the Unlock Code appears.

 

To many variations these days , Sim only Plans , Month by Month , 12 - 24 mth Contract , Shared Data Plans , the only downfall with plans and Phone is if you leave early you pay a Penalty or the remainder of the Contract Cost.

 

So no money to be made in Unlocking Phones as a Service ......its free allready / or not required.

I don't pay much attention to the US laws governing phone sales unfortunately, luckily here in Canada, a recent law just passed that forces all new devices to be unlocked and unlock fees be waived. That may not be the case, but first you'd have to call your service provider and request the unlock code. You'll learn about the fee, and they'll give you instructions on how to do it. Once it's completed, you'll have free reign as to where the device can be used.

 

As mentioned above by Havachat, if you plan on leaving your current provider. Make sure your agreement is met (phone is paid off), or be ready to pay off what's remaining on the device. Once that's done, you'll own the device and can do with it what you will.
