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 3Gs 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 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 iPhone will be unlocked to use any sim card and no longer limited to any individual provider.

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 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.

How to unlock iPhone 3Gs:
  1. Locate your IMEI number (Detailed help on how to find your imei is available here)
  2. Select the Network/Country that your iPhone 3Gs is CURRENTLY locked to.
  3. Order your iPhone Unlock - Instant submission upon payment.
  4. Unlock confirmation email sent immediately upon status update.
  5. Simply insert a new Sim card whilst connected to an active WiFi signal to complete the unlock.

    I found lots of more expensive services out there so I was understandably hesitant at first. I had no need to worry. My unlock from O2 took under 2 days.

    Customer service eliminated any doubts I had, answered all my questions and walked me through what I needed to order. Great customer service, rarely experienced now with online shopping.

    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

    My EE iPhone that is still in contract was unlocked in just 3 days when EE would not even enterain it. Bit expensive but less than I'd found elsewhere and the price was justified when it was explained to me that the handset is heavily subsidised when purchased on a contract.
