Content lock, just cant unlock it.

So content lock on my device (sim only) prevents me from viewing some websites (they are not even 18+) that I visit daily. And I cant unlock it, there is no option to do it in the settings; after sending a text I get 'your response has not been indentified'; and I do not own a credit card.

 

I find this absolutely outrageous. Some websites I cant access are not even in english, how can BBFC possibly know about them and judge their content? How is it necessary to be over 18 to access urbandictionary.com ??

Re: Content lock, just cant unlock it.

Yes, options 1,2,3 wont work/are unavailable, my card number I entered over the phone is not good enough as a proof of age. Going to a store and provide a passport? What if its expired and I don't have british driving license? This state control is crazy.

 

PS.

Ok so it may not be a content lock after all. As all I get is a

 

"This site can't be reached

 

xyz unexpectedly closed the connection

 

ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED"

 

What is this? Websites I'm trying to access do work fine on wifi. 

 

So I did a little experiment and tried to enter some edgy sites for the lulz like s...mfront and then I DO get redirected  "THIS CONTENT IS LOCKED" message.

 

Now I would like to know 2 things. What is this error and how to disable content lock.

Re: Content lock, just cant unlock it.

Which Website? There are many reports coming in concerning AWS hosted sites.
