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 4 to be used with ANY network and unlocked from anywhere in the world. Unless stated, as long as your iPhone 4 has not been reported 'lost or stolen', any iPhone 4 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 4 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.

How to unlock an iPhone 4 on A1:
  1. Locate your IMEI number (Detailed help on how to find your imei is available here)
  2. Select iPhone 4 from the model options.
  3. Select the Country your A1 iPhone is locked to.
  4. Confirm the A1 network by selecting it once the country has been selected.
  5. Order your iPhone Unlock - Instant submission upon payment.
  6. Unlock confirmation email sent immediately upon status update.
  7. Simply insert a new Sim card whilst connected to an active WiFi signal to complete the unlock.

The iPhone 4 was first unveiled on June 7, 2010 at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco and soon after released in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany and Japan on June 24, 2010. It was the 4th generation of iPhone, at the time, succeeding the 3GS and preceding the 4S.

The iPhone 4 was the first of the iPhone range to include a front-facing camera and the first to be released in a version for CDMA networks, ending AT&T's period as the exclusive carrier of iPhone products in the United States.

At the time Apple claimed the iPhone 4 to be the thinnest smartphone in the World. The iPhone 4 also introduced Apple's new high-resolution "Retina Display". The iPhone 4 also introduced iOS 4 which included Facetime and multitasking.

It was succeeded as Apple's flagship smartphone in 2011 by the iPhone 4S. However, iPhone 4 continued to be produced until 2013.

All iPhone 4 models on networks that support Official Apple Factory IMEI unlocking can be unlocked with this service.

    Was told by local shop that my phone could only be unlocked by Vodafone at an extortionate price and a 4 week wait. Chose www.officialappleunlcock.com web site after looking at many. The process was simple, quick and successful. I will recommend this site to anyone who asks about iPhone unlocking.

    I was referred to this site by my friend so was already confident that this was not one of the many scam sites out there. They did exaclty what they promised and unlocked my phone from Vodafone very quickly. I now too, can confidently recommend this service and its results. Simply don't go anywhere else!

    I do highly recommend this service, it's awesome. My only reason for a 4 star reviews was I was quoted 24 hours for unlock and after 24 hours I was worried I had been a victim of a scam. The unlock was completed in under 48hrs however!

    Took a little longer than expected but most importantly the unlock worked.

    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
