What iPhone do we unlock?

As the majority of owners already know, most iPhone’s are sold in a SIM locked condition, restricting their use to one particular network carrier. Unlike most GSM phones, an iPhone cannot be unlocked by simply entering an unlock code. The locked/unlocked state of an iPhone is identified by it’s unique IMEI number and is maintained on Apple’s server. This locked/unlocked status is set when the handset is activated in iTunes.

 

This “official” method of unlocking (when an iPhone status is set as UNLOCKED on Apple’s server) is also known as “factory” or “IMEI” unlocking and is usually only provided directly by the network carrier the iPhone is locked to. BUT carriers will refuse to unlock iPhone’s unless strict unlocking criteria is met.

 

The unlocks we provide are permanent, work with any iPhone model, operating system (iOS) and baseband version, and once unlocked, enable an iPhone to be used with any GSM network carrier, anywhere in the world.
