How to unlock your Smart bro, Globe tattoo or Sun broadband USB Dongle or Pocket Wifi
My post about Smart vs Globe internet has been getting a LOT of views and comments so I thought I’d write a related post. Figured people might find the tool I used to unlock my usb dongle and pocket wifi useful.
This really isn’t going to be very long since this isn’t a tech blog and I don’t want it to become one hehe. So I’ll just be mentioning what I used to unlock my devices with links to the site where you can download the app.
They already have really good video tutorials on their site so there’s no need for me to make another one.
So here it goes.
Smart bro, Globe tattoo or Sun broadband USB Dongle or Pocket Wifi Unlocking Tool
The tool I used is called DC unlocker. You can download it here:
What does unlocking my smart bro, Globe tattoo or Sun Broadband do?
Unlocking your usb or pocket wifi device makes it an openline device.
If you got your device from any one of the the three networks, then it’s probably locked to that network only. Meaning it’s not going to accept any other sim card.
Unlocking it or making it into an openline device basically removes that restriction. So once it’s done, you can now use it to connect to the internet using any sim card.
Is it free?
No. The App download itself is free but you cant unlock your device without credits. The App will let you identify your device but you’re going to need credits to unlock it.
So you’ll need a credit card, a paypal account or a money brookers account if you want to use this device. They have other options as well, just check their site.
Should I try to unlock my device myself or should I pay someone else to do it for me?
If you’re techy enough you can probably work out how to use this device and unlock your own devices and your friends. Heck you can even charge other people and maybe start a business with this lol.
If you do the math, you’ll be spending less money unlocking your devices yourself rather than having it unlocked at one of the stalls in green hills or at some malls.
What’s cool about learning how to do this yourself is that you can unlock the other devices that you’ll buy in the future yourself. That should save you some cash.
If you’re not confident in your tech skills though, you might as well pay someone else to do it. The process isn’t difficult but there are just some people (I know a lot of them) who don’t mix well with technology. That’s fine.
Kung di kaya, wag na pilitin.
How much will unlocking my device cost?
Each device will cost a certain number of credits to unlock. 1 Credit costs 1 Euro. Just head on over to their site to check how much your device will cost.
Also, and I’m not very sure about this because my memory is fuzzy, I think the free dc unlocker app also tells you how many credits are needed to unlock your device once it’s able to identify it.
How do you use it?
I refer you to the tutorials on their site:
No need for me to make another one. These are comprehensive enough.
If you have any questions, you can head on over to their forum:
They’ll be better able to answer your questions so wag na ako yung tanongin lol.
Coz I unlocked both my Globe USB dongle and Globe Pocket wifi early last year and I can’t really remember the process anymore hehe. So I might need to look up their tutorials again once I unlock my next device (I don’t plan on getting a new one anytime soon though).
Is there a free version of DC-unlocker?
I have seen some cracked ones online but I can’t remember where. But from the comments I read, a lot of them don’t work anymore. Just Google for those if that’s what you’re after.
So yeah, that’s it. Good luck unlocking your device and please like my Facebook page below if you found this post useful :). Thanks.
