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

How to unlock an iPhone 4s on Tesco Mobile:
  1. Locate your IMEI number (Detailed help on how to find your imei is available here)

The fifth generation of the iPhone family, the iPhone 4s which replaced the iPhone 4 and preceeded the iPhone 5 was announced on October 4, 2011 at Apple's Cupertino campus.

Availability of the iPhone 4 became available on October 14, 2011 in the United States, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Japan. The iPhone 4 sold over more than a million units in the first twenty four hours of going on sale and more than four million sales in the first four days of retail availability. 22 additional countries were added to the continual rollout on October 28.

This iPhone was named "4S" the ‘S’ depicting the introduction of Siri an iPhone 4S exclusive intelligent personal assistant which has since been included in the future generations of mobile Apple products. Retaining most of the external design of the iPhone 4, the 4S hosted major internal upgrades including an upgrade to the Apple A5 chipset and an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording. It launched with iOS 5, the fifth major version of iOS and introduced a host of new features including iCloud, iMessage, Notification Center, Reminders, and Twitter integration.

It was succeeded by the iPhone 5 as on September 12, 2012. The iPhone 4S remained in production until it was finally discontinued on following the announcement of the iPhone 6. It was the last iPhone to have the original 30 pin connector as it was replaced by the Lightning Connector when the iPhone 5 was released.

    I looked at and compared a large number of unlock sites and in the end chose these guys. For the benefit of those reading this, I found their prices better or comparable with other services which was obviously the first factor but for those prices their unlock times were much quicker. Other sites advertise the same prices but some had unlock timescales 3 times longer than those offered here. I am glad to say that they delivered within their advertised times so I cannot praise more highly. Look no further if you need an unlock.

    I now have an official unlocked iPhone that I can use as normal without the need to worry about relocking, unlike the previous software solution I had to use. An offiical IMEI unlock is the only method I would recommend to anyone.

    I didn't want to simply change networks, I'm more than happy with my current EE network but they told me that I could not unlock my iPhone within 6 months! I just wanted to use my phone with my Italian network when I spend time at my holiday home abroad.I was a little concerned because if my network wouldn't help me, I wondered how this site could? I need not have worried, within a very short time I received the unlock confirmation and my phone was unlocked. I now swap between sims when I travel and they did what my network said they wouldnt. Many Many Thanks

    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

    I never expected this process to be quite so simple but their website stated, I got my unlock within 48hrs and my iPhone 5c is now unlocked and working perfectly with a Vodafone sim. I will definitely recommend. Thanks

    I must say, I was really impressed how simple and fast the process was. The services state 'working days' only but I ordered my unlock on Saturday evening and received my unlock on a Sunday which both surprised and pleased me, no end. Thanks for a great jub.
