Why do I need Network Lock?

Network Lock is a feature that protects you from unintended data roaming usage by enabling data roaming only on preferred networks in Data Passport and Daily Unlimited Data Roaming destinations.

How to activate/deactivate Network Lock?

Network Lock will be automatically provisioned to your Postpaid Mobile/Mobile Broadband Plan when you activate data roaming service.
Or, you can activate / de-activate Network Lock through our self-service channels:

  • Call *123#
  • Manage My Account
  • My M1 App
You will receive a confirmation SMS when Network Lock is activated/deactivated. Prevailing data roaming charges apply when using data on non-preferred networks. Please restart your mobile device upon receipt of the confirmation SMS.
I have Roaming Subscription and activated Data Roaming service since last year. Will Network Lock be provided to me automatically?

Yes, Network Lock was progressively provisioned to all mobile/mobile broadband lines that have activated data roaming, within 1 week from service availability on 10 July 2015. You should receive a confirmation SMS when Network Lock is activated.
