Jun 14, 2024 • Filed to: Remove Screen Lock • Proven solutions

Motorola produces some interesting phones that appeal to budget-conscious buyers who want a clean Android experience as close to pure Android as possible. Really, that and the price point are the only major points in favor of Motorola phones of late. The devices are mid-range in general but are crammed with features that some users might have been missing in phones that cost much more. These features include, for example, a pure Android UI experience as close to stock Android and other things such as that coveted but elusive 3.5 mm headphone port. If you own a Motorola phone such as the Motorola One 5G Ace for example and are wondering how to network unlock the Motorola One 5G Ace to use with other networks, read this guide below. You will learn how to unlock Motorola One 5G Ace with code and without code, along with a special part outlining how to migrate WhatsApp chats from Android to iOS.

Part I: About Motorola One 5G Ace

Motorola announced and released the One 5G Ace in January 2021. As far as phones go, this is a decent phone with adequate performance for everyday use. Its performance is not going to scorch the earth, but it is not going to drag its feet either. Powered by Snapdragon 750G and armed with 4 GB and 6 GB RAM options, this is a good phone that supports 5G bands as well. Here are the key metrics of Motorola One 5G Ace for anyone interested in the phone:

  • 6.7 inches 2400x1080 pixel full HD display with HDR10.
  • Snapdragon 750G with Adreno 619.
  • 4 GB and 6 GB RAM options with 64 GB and 128 GB storage respectively.
  • Android 10.
  • 5G connectivity for futureproofing.
  • 48 MP, 8 MP and 2 MP rear cameras with 16 MP front camera.
  • Dedicated memory card slot along with 3.5 mm headphone port.
  • 5000 mah battery with 15W fast charging.
  • 212g weight.

With these specs, this is a good phone for everyday use and happily sits in the mid-range bracket. The hardware and software features (headphone port, dedicated memory card slot, pure Android experience) are what attract people to Motorola in the first place, and the Motorola One 5G Ace does not disappoint in that aspect.

Part II: Is It Safe To Network Unlock Motorola One 5G Ace?

Network unlocking is the process wherein you enter a code in your phone that lets you unlock the phone to work with SIMs of all compatible network operators. So instead of being locked to the one network that you bought the phone from, you can now use it with any network just the way you can if you purchase an unlocked phone in the market by paying full price.

As such, it is a harmless process when done legally. What we mean to say is that if suppose you do not have a code from your network and try to buy a code online, there exists a chance of you getting conned by scammers. Since you will be giving your IMEI information to the online website, then in case the website is run by scammers, there is a chance they can clone your phone and cause financial damage to you. Nothing of this sort will happen if the code is obtained directly from the network provider as your privacy is protected by the network and there is implied trust in the network.

Part III: Unlock Motorola One 5G Ace SIM Lock With Code

So, the first thing to do is get the network unlock code for your Motorola One 5G Ace. How and where to get it? There are two ways you can procure the code – via your network operator or online.

Via The Network Operator

The safest and easiest way to get your Motorola One 5G Ace SIM unlocked is calling the service provider and requesting them to do so. They will give you the code and instructions on how to use it if your account does not have any dues and if the contract term is expired. Sometimes, for various reasons, we feel the need to unlock the phones before term, and that is where the second option comes – buying a code online.

Buying A Network Unlock Code Online

Buying a network unlock code online comes with a risk to your privacy. That is because while your network is a trusted business entity that will not do anything with your IMEI, the same cannot be said of online services because there is always the risk of having picked the wrong one unknowingly where your device is susceptible to being cloned by unethical sellers as they are in possession of your device IMEI. If you are able to do a thorough research and find out a reliable service, you may proceed with buying a code online – it will work just as the code from your network operator.

Part IV: Unlock Motorola One 5G Ace SIM Lock Without Code

But what if we do not have a code? Then, the answer is no, you will not be able to network unlock your Motorola One 5G Ace. However, if you wanted to unlock the screen lock as you have forgotten the code, then you are in luck because there is a tool you can use to quickly unlock your Motorola 5G Ace without code in minutes without data loss. Sounds interesting?
