Network unlock Samsung Galaxy S5

How much would it cost me to get a Samsung Galaxy S5 unlocked to all networks?

Not sure. But from what I gather Samsung closed all those easy cracks that allowed
people to unlock previous Galaxy models with simple apps available in the Play Store - Galaxsim Unlock, e.g. does not work on the SGS5 and even older models can no longer
be unlocked using the app if the latest software updates were applied.

I'm only guessing, but I would assume the world's networks weren't too happy
with Samsung's casual approach.

Ask in a local repair shop. Do NOT trust online services. As far as I can tell from various online comments, those companies cannot unlock the SGS5, yet. But they do take your money for trying....

Can't you get an unlock code from your network? Tell them you travel to Kashmir, and you need to use it with a foreign SIM....

My local shop wanted £9 for instant (under 30mins) unlock code or £5 if I was prepared to wait from 12 to 24hrs, then they text it to you.
