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 5c 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 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 iPhone will be unlocked to use any sim card and no longer limited to any individual provider.

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 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 5c:
  1. Locate your IMEI number (Detailed help on how to find your imei is available here)
  2. Select the Network/Country that your iPhone 5c 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.

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.

    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

    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.

    Had a little problem with the phone recognising the unlock but emailed customer service and they soon determined it was because I had restored my phone to factory settings and not activated it before trying to unlock it. On their advice I solved my problem and now my phone is unlocked. The only reason for a 4 star and not a 5 was that LiveChat is only available 104 GMT and I am now in Australia. Already recommended to other travellers I have come across wishing to do the same and will continue to recommend you. Brilliant service, thank you.

    I was tasked with unlocking our 7 company iPhones... All were unlocked from the Orange network within the timescale quoted and contrary to my expectations, the whole process was simple and easy. I had no further involvement other than submitted the IMEI's, they did everything and I simply received an email confirming the unlock for each handset. Will definitely use for all our unlocking requirements.

    I took my iPhone 6 to Australia with me and only realised whilst I was there that I couldn't use another sim card in it Orange were less than helpful and would not unlock my phone for me so after searching the internet for a solution I found these guys and without any problems my phone was unlocked in just a couple of days.
