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

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

To unlock your iPhone 5c 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 Tim 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 5c on Tim:
  1. Locate your IMEI number (Detailed help on how to find your imei is available here)
  2. Select iPhone 5c from the model options.
  3. Select the Country your Tim iPhone is locked to.
  4. Confirm the Tim network by selecting it once the country has been selected.

The iPhone 5C is a variant of the iPhone 5 with similar hardware specifications but most notably a hard-coated polycarbonate shell instead of the aluminium of the original iPhone 5 and was available in several color options.

Shipped with iOS 7, the iPhone 5C, available in both 16 and 32 GB options, was sold at a discounted price compared to the 5S. Upon the announcement of the iPhone 6S in September 2015, the iPhone 5C was discontinued.

    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

    I had been contacting Orange for over a month to try and unlock an iPhone I purchased on ebay without any success. After a further 2 weeks of waiting and getting nowhere I decided to look elsewhere. I was a little hesitant of the the reliability of an online solution opposed to an Orange shop but after purchasing the unlock I received confirmation of the unlock in just 3 days. Wish I'd done it right at the start!

    I needed a little bit of help with my unlock but it was dealt with very promptly, they got back to me straight away and I'm not the happy owner of a fully unlocked iPhone 6. Thanks

    Spent about a week being told by local shops and Vodafone that I could not get unlocked, I thought I was stuck with an iPhone that I was never going to get unlocked. Found officialappleunlock this morning and within a few days it was unlocked. Seriously impressed and can highly recommend to others.

    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
