Unlocking policies with the various networks differ greatly. If you bought an iPhone 2nd hand or on Ebay for example, were gifted an iPhone, if you are not the original contract holder or if a contract period remains, to name but a few, you probably will not meet the requirements to unlock directly via the network. This is when an Official Factory Apple Unlock Service is required.
An Official Apple Unlock service removes ALL network restrictions imposed by the existing network and allows your iPhone 3G to be used with ANY network, around the World. Unless stated, as long as your iPhone has not been reported 'lost or stolen', any iPhone 3G can be unlocked, regardless of contractual period (unless stated) etc. Once unlocked you are able to swap and change network Sim cards at your will, your iPhone will be unlocked to use any sim card and no longer limited to any individual provider.
To unlock your iPhone 3G with an Official Permanent iPhone Unlock all we require is the IMEI of the phone and a contact email address to receive all correspondence and ultimately, the 'Unlock Confirmation'.
An IMEI number is a unique 15 digit number that identifies your handset and the network it is locked to. The process updates your IMEI on the Apple GSX database and it is marked as 'Unlocked/Whitelisted/Sim Free'. This is the only permanent unlock, recognised by Apple.

The iPhone 3G was first revealed on June 9, 2008 and was to become Apple’s 2nd generation iPhone.
The iPhone 3G was internally similar to its predecessor but included several new hardware features such as GPS, 3G data and tri-band UMTS/HSDPA. The device was originally launched running the iPhone OS 2.0. operating system. This new operating system which, included push email and navigation also saw the introduction of the App Store, the third party application marketplace.
On July 11, 2008 Apple actually released the iPhone 3G across twenty-two countries in two storage options, 8GB and 16GB. The 16GB model was produced in either black or white.
Following the release of the successor iPhone 3GS model one year later, the iPhone 3G remained on sale but became Apple's budget phone with its price cut in half. Available only in black with 8 GB of storage and bundled with the updated iPhone OS 3.0 software.
On June 7, 2010, the iPhone 3G was finally discontinued, and replaced as Apple's budget phone by an 8 GB iPhone 3GS selling for the same price of with a 2-year contract.
