Almost all the iPhones in circulation are factory locked devices. This means they were locked by Apple, at the request of the network that supplied the handset as is was sold at a heavily discounted rate. Apple have entered into agreements with all the major cell phone service provides in more than one hundred countries around the world, to supply iPhones locked to those carrier networks. So if you were to purchase a cheap iPhone from AT&T you will not be able to use it on T-Mobile, Sprint or Verizon. The networks offer these handsets at heavily reduced prices as they are confident they can recoup the cost of the subsidies they offer over the duration of a 24 or 36 month contract. Providing their customers with a really cheap iPhone is a real no-brainer for the big service providers. They know that if they can get a customer to sign up to a 36 month contract in exchange for a cheap iPhone they will more than recover the subsidy offered over its duration. Say you have relocated overseas because of your job, how can you use your iPhone on a domestic cellular network? Luckily for you it's now possible to get your iPhone unlocked so you can use it on another network. In fact, once unlocked, you will be able to use the handset on any network, in any country. Factory Unlock iPhone 5It is surprising but often people were unaware that software unlocking would void the manufacturer's warranty on their device and could only be applied to handsets running firmware 5.1.1 or earlier. Although, in theory, it is still possible to use software to unlock an iPhone, the phone would have to be an iPhone 4s (or earlier) and it would have to be running firmware no fewer than 5.1.1. The 2nd kind of iPhone unlocking you can do is known as an official iPhone unlock. If you use this method to unlock your iPhone it will be identical to a factory unlocked iPhone purchased directly from Apple, but obviously for a fraction of the price. One of the primary benefits of IMEI unlocking is that it does not invalidate your Apple warranty. Once you have unlocked you may also safely upgrade your phone in iTunes when new iOS is release without ever having to worry about it relocking. This method of unlocking used to only be offered by networks to customers that had fulfilled their contracts. There has been a recent change in the iPhone unlocking industry recently that makes it possible to now have your iPhone unlocked by an independent, third party organization. To some people this may seem a little unethical, but it is perfectly legal and the service provided is identical in every way to that offered by the carriers directly.
