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.

Yes a lot cheaper to get it in the US, this is far by one of the best simple phones you can get for a great price which works with all carriers  (Or at least golan/hot mobile) and I'm sure the rest as well as it's a t-mobile gsm phone so is Israel's phone carrier's.
  Now these phones are usually locked so if you have a T-Mobile account you can have this phone unlocked by telling them you're going out of the country and will like to use another SIM from another country in your phone, but if you don't have T-Mobile you got to figure out another way to have it unlocked or ask a friend of yours to have it unlocked by calling T-Mobile through his account info.
   I went ahead and looked through a bunch of them on eBay this is the best possible match I found from the quick search I did, all the other ones I looked at or either broken or triple the price or all damaged.

Check out Samsung gravity text phone and Samsung hotspot from t-mobile #TMobile https://m.ebay.com/itm/Samsung-gravity-text-phone-and-Samsung-hotspot-from-t-mobile-/253596185522?roken=cUgayN&soutkn=owkQei via @eBay

 I would buy this phone just to have a third spare phone like this around the house or to use when going to Israel if needed a basic phone.

Great price for new on Amazon, I see them going for 140$ now. Lol
