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 Sunrise. This is when an Official Factory Apple Unlock Service is required.

An Official Apple Unlock removes ALL network restrictions imposed by Sunrise both in and around the world. This allows your iPhone 5 to be used with ANY network and unlocked from anywhere in the world. Unless stated, as long as your iPhone 5 has not been reported 'lost or stolen', any iPhone 5 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 Sunrise in .

To unlock your iPhone 5 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 Sunrise 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 5 on Sunrise:
  1. Locate your IMEI number (Detailed help on how to find your imei is available here)
  2. Select iPhone 5 from the model options.
  3. Select the Country your Sunrise iPhone is locked to.
  4. Confirm the Sunrise 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.

Revealed in September 2012, the iPhone 5 was the sixth generation of the iPhone, replacing the iPhone 4S later to be replaced by iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.

The iPhone 5 featured major design changes which included an aluminum-based body which was thinner and lighter than previous models, a taller screen with a nearly 9:16 aspect ratio, the Apple A6 system-on-chip, LTE support, and the Lightning port, a new compact dock connector which replaced the 30-pin design used by previous iPhone models.

Within 24hrs of release, over two million orders were received and demand for the iPhone 5 exceeded the supply available upon the launch date of September 21.

The iPhone 5 was officially discontinued by Apple on September 10, 2013 with the announcement of its successors, the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C. With the release of its replacement models, the iPhone 5 was only produced for 12 months.

    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

    Was in a real rush to unlock my phone before my holiday. As always I left everything until the last minute and unfortunately my first experience with an online unlock site proved a costly mistake. I spent $19 on an unlock that was supposedly guaranteed to unlock all iPhones in minutes, of course it didn't work. As with a lot of things, I found out too late about the various scams out there and had already wasted time and money. I spoke to LiveChat and he explained that any company that claims an instant unlock for all iPhones is clearly a scam. I hesitantly ordered my unlock and within 2 days.. just in time for my travels, my phone unlock completed. Absolutely fantastic, thank you very much!

    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.

    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!!
