Two Main Golden Rules to Follow

1) Billing and shipping addresses should be the same.

Different addresses for billing and shipping raise a flag and especially for websites with strict fraud prevention control this is an immediate reason to not accept or cancel the order. The billing address is the address registered to your US Unlocked account. Many websites use AVS, address verification software. When the billing address you submitted does not match with the card according to the AVS, the order is canceled by the webstore. Not every webstore uses AVS, however. Especially since AVS is only for US, UK, and Canadian addresses. So these websites will accept your order as long as the billing and shipping address are the same.

2) Use a VPN connection

Many websites monitor the IP location of their visitors and only allow the ones with US IP address to purchase. Using a VPN connection also provides https encryption of your time and actions on the web, protection against identity theft, and “snoopers” at wifi location. For customers in countries with censorship, a VPN provides access to otherwise blocked sites. To make sure your IP address is a US IP address go to
