The answer is ‘yes’, the iPhone can be unlocked. OK guys, this is not about a hack or ‘make money online stuff’ but about a most wanted service for iPhone owners around the world – the SIM unlock for their iPhone so that it can be used with many different carriers. I hope you already know what iPhone ‘unlock’ means.
I have seen people are spending a good amount of money to get their iPhone unlocked which ranges from $$ to $$$ !!! and in many case they are ripped-off. So I thought I would just introduce you guys some cheap or almost free iPhone unlocking services. These services are 100% legit and working and I personally tried those (I recently unlocked my Bell Canada iPhone 4s and my friend’s USA at&t iPhone 5 using the same service and methods) and moreover those service or methods are very cheap.
Please note, each method will only work with specific iPhone model, iOS version and/or carrier, you need to choose the right one out of them; so read on..
Factory unlock iPhone (iPhone carrier unlock)
This would be the most favorite method of all ‘unlockers’. In this method, the iPhone IMEI would be marked as ‘unlocked’ in manufactures (Apple) database so when you connect iPhone next time to iTunes it would be automatically unlocked. This unlock is permanent and the phone will never lock again. This method is also called iPhone carrier unlock and is good for carrier unlock iPhone 4 (which is not possible with RSIM, gevey sim unlock method – explained later in this post)
Support: All models and version of iPhone available so far (unlock iPhone 4 ios 5, unlock iPhone ios 5 etc.)
This method also called as iPhone turbo sim unlock. In this method we need to use a specific SIM tray (with some micro chip in it) to unlock the iPhone. We need to keep the SIM tray since then on your iPhone to keep your unlock. Both R SIM and Gevey SIM will work based on the same concept but my favorite is RSIM which supports both iPhone 4s and iPhoned 5, iOS version till 6.0.1. R SIM has different versions and obviousely we need to go with the latest version (which is 7 currently) to support the latest version of iPhone.
You can check more detail about R SIM here
Support: iPhone 4s and iPhone 5 (till iOS 6.0.1, unlock iphone 4s ios 5, unlock iphone ios 5, sorry no iPhone 4 or old versions. There are restrictions for CDMA versions, check the above link for more detail.)
