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 Tesco Mobile. This is when an Official Factory Apple Unlock Service is required.

An Official Apple Unlock removes ALL network restrictions imposed by Tesco Mobile 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 Tesco Mobile 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 Tesco Mobile 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.

    The requirement for unlocking your phone doesn't come around that often but I used this service 1 year ago and I was very relieved to find our old communication and use them again. Quicker than the first time and obviously the service has become more refined because great customer service, communication and much simpler to complete. See you again in another 2 years!!

    Totally confused by all the sites claiming to be able to unlock my iPhone. I asked a few questions and was directed to an info page which listed a lot of the scam tactics used by these sites and what to avoid, I immediately new I had been just one click away from losing my money. Please Will, post the link in the comment on this post because I cannot find it and found it very enlightening. Great service, absolutely fantastic customer communication. Can't recommend enough.

    I bought what I thought was an unlocked iPhone but they are not really unlocked!!I bought an unlocked iPhone 6 to take with us on our 6 months travels throughout Europe so that we could use local sim cards during our trip and avoid high roaming charges. I put my UK O2 sim in the phone and it worked fine but when we than came to put a French sim card in the phone it said Sim Not Valid!! After phone calls to Carphone Warehouse I was told that it would only work with the O2 network now! It's not unlocked then is it!!When I came across this service online the customer support girl explained everything clearly to me and the 'Next Tether Policy' whatever that meant? My only option was to unlock my handset and chose to go ahead because the timescale was so quick compared to other sites I'd seen. Took less than 2 days to get my phone unlocked and now I truly have an unlocked phone that will allow me to use any network.CAnnot thank these guys enough HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    Lets face it, the only reason we read these reviews is to get the confidence of those who have gone before us! It's the only reason I have taken the time to add this, simply because the service and customer service was beyond all of my expectations. I took the chance and I am pleased to say it worked, my iPhone 5s was unlocked from the Vodafone network in under 3 days. Cannot recommend highly enough. Great job

    Had a little problem with the phone recognising the unlock but emailed customer service and they soon determined it was because I had restored my phone to factory settings and not activated it before trying to unlock it. On their advice I solved my problem and now my phone is unlocked. The only reason for a 4 star and not a 5 was that LiveChat is only available 104 GMT and I am now in Australia. Already recommended to other travellers I have come across wishing to do the same and will continue to recommend you. Brilliant service, thank you.

    I think like most people who have not been personally recommended to a service, I was sceptical. I decided to give this company a go and although it cost a little more than the network quoted, having the phone unlocked in 3 days rather than the 4 weeks quoted by EE, it was well worth it. Very very satisfied with this service. Will use again
