Unlocking policies with the various networks differ greatly. If you bought an iPhone 2nd hand or were gifted an iPhone, if you are not the original contract holder or if a contract period remains (to name but a few) it's likely you will not meet the requirements to unlock directly via A1. This is when an Official Factory Apple Unlock Service is required.

An Official Apple Unlock removes ALL network restrictions imposed by A1 both in and around the world. This allows your iPhone 3Gs to be used with ANY network and unlocked from anywhere in the world. Unless stated, as long as your iPhone 3Gs has not been reported 'lost or stolen', any iPhone 3Gs 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 will be unlocked to use any sim card and no longer limited to just A1 in .

To unlock your iPhone 3Gs 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 its lock to the A1 network. 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.

    I took my iPhone 6 to Australia with me and only realised whilst I was there that I couldn't use another sim card in it Orange were less than helpful and would not unlock my phone for me so after searching the internet for a solution I found these guys and without any problems my phone was unlocked in just a couple of days.

    I was in a hurry to unlock my phone and was bombarded with confusing websites. I found this site and could see they had lots of satisfied customers. The very next day I received my unlock confirmation and simply inserting a new sim card in to the phone, it was recognised and I have been using it without a problem since. The service was excellent
