Bouygue Telecom, a company based out of Paris is a French mobile phone and Internet service provider and is part of the Bouygue Group founded in 1994. Being primarily a French only carrier means that the extensive services of the company will not be available outside France. This could create a problem for many mobile phone users. Your Samsung, Motorola or Blackberry phone might be locked to Bouygue. That means that you may incur heavy roaming charges while travelling outside France. You will not be able to use any other phone carrier until the lock is removed from your phone. This can be done easily by using Bouygue unlock codes from a reputable unlock code provider like GSMLiberty. Unlock codes are special codes specific to your phone which, when entered, will remove the SIM lock or the network restriction once and for all. There is no damage to the phone software and the phone warranty remains valid. The unlock code is generated on the basis of your phone’s 15 digit IMEI number. This number can be found underneath the phone battery. Or you can type *#06#* on the keypad to see the number displayed on the screen. Your specific unlock code will be generated and delivered to you via email within the timeframe promised. Follow the unlocking instructions provided and get the lock removed easily!
