Unless stated otherwise, iPhones purchased from retail stores or directly from carriers are “locked” to one specific network. For instance, an iPhone purchased from Sprint won’t work on the T-Mobile network. The main reason that iPhones are SIM locked is to enable the carriers to recoup their losses for supplying discounted phones. Many companies lure new customers to sign up to their service using cheap iPhones as bait. Many carriers offer these handsets at seriously reduced prices as they know they will be able to recover this money over the contract period. As a result, carriers make it difficult to switch to another mobile phone service provider by locking the iPhones they supply to their network. Additionally, Apple keep these carriers happy by selling their factory unlocked iPhones at a premium, sometimes as much as 500 percent more than getting it with a contract. But say you wanted to use your iPhone on a different network as you have moved to a new area and your original carrier’s coverage is bad? The good news is there options available to unlock your iPhone so it can be used on any GSM network, anywhere in the world. How To Unlock iPhone 4There used to be two different methods available to unlock and iPhone. The software method used to be the way to go, but this has subsequently been replaced with the IMEI unlocking process. Compared to the software method, an IMEI unlock enables you to permanently unlock your iPhone. Several years ago it was possible to unlock an iPhone using a software program. What many people fail to appreciate is that it is only possible to install 3rd party software (software not approved by Apple) on to an iPhone after it had been jailbroken - a process which hacks into and exploits "holes" in the iPhones operating system. With the unlocking software installed on the jailbroken phone, it was possible to connect it to networks other than those it was officially locked to. You have to keep in mind that if you wish to software unlock your old iPhone (software unlocking has never been possible on any of the iPhone 5 models) that it must be running 5.1.1 firmware (or below). We would advise anyone interested in unlocking an iPhone to choose the factory unlock method. Once unlocked using this method, and iPhone will operate just as if it had been purchased as factory unlocked from Apple. You would have though Apple themselves would offer this options to its customers wishing to unlock, but sadly that is not the case. Apple have never offered a factory unlocking service and are highly unlikely to in the future. Until now it has only been possible to request a factory unlock from the network your iPhone is locked to. They are under no obligation to act upon your request though. As expected, most of them refuse to comply with unlocking requests. The great news is that it's now possible for some third party companies to factory unlock your iPhone using the exact same process used by the carriers. What's even more attractive is there are very few limitations imposed by these third party unlockers. As long as your handset isn't reported as lost or stolen, they will unlock it for you. These new service providers are able to provide an official factory unlocking service, so you phone will work on any network, can sync in iTunes, you can upgrade your iOS at any time after unlocking and your warranty will remain intact.
