Kosher Phones
« on: April 30, 2017, 05:40:34 AM »
Hi
Is it possible to unlock an Israeli Samsung Kosher phone to make it un kosher?

I had an israeli samsung phone that I was able to put a kosher sim into but that phone broke and I needed a new phone and had no time to play around so I just bought a regular kosher phone but now I want to unlock so it works normally.

It's probably impossible

The next 'kosher phone' for those that don't want a kosher phone.

where is a good place to get a dumb phone in Israel?
is it cheaper to get it in the US?
I am not sure what the difference between flip vs kosher vs dumb phones? The yeshiva requires a dumb phone but did not specify how dumb it needs to be.

To answer part of your question:
Some phones need to go into the mikvah in order to work with a  a israel sim card  :o
Really  ;) what I mean is that only certain phones work with a Kosher Sim card and the phone has to be provisioned a certain way, otherwise the sim card will get locked and you need to call up the carrier to unlock the sim card.

you'll get more bang for your buck in the US.
If your yeshiva just requires a feature phone and not an actual kosher phone I'd stick to that.
Kosher phones are limiting and more expensive. 

Plus you'll still have texting with a feature/dumb phone.

I think that there is a nice element that would enjoy having a phone that has a good camera,qwerty keyboard, unlimited text storage, decent picture text, unlimited contacts etc.
