Fastest Unlock Guaranteed

Want to unlock an iPhone from the A1 Network? Most mobile networks around the world sell iPhones restricted to work solely with their own network, A1 included.

If you want to use your iPhone with a network other than A1, first you will need to unlock it and remove ALL restrictions enforced by them.

To unlock an iPhone from A1 with an Official Apple iPhone Unlock, all that is required is the IMEI of the iPhone and the country/network it is CURRENTLY locked to.


Some of the major networks have operations in numerous countries, please select the iPhone model and the country your particular A1 network operates within. A full list of supported countries and networks is available here (iPhone Unlock Services)

Please select your phone model

Please select the country where your iPhone is locked

Please select the network your iPhone is locked to


If you want to unlock your iPhone from A1 so that you can use a different SIM card from a different network, an Official Apple iPhone Unlock is exactly what you are looking for.

Each iPhone has a unique 15 digit identifier called an IMEI number which links every iPhone to its parent network. By submitting your IMEI to be unlocked from A1 it is updated on the Apple database as 'SIM-FREE', it does not require any modifications to the phone and when you receive the completion notice, the update is automatic when you insert a new sim card.

Unlocking policies with the various networks differ greatly. If you bought an iPhone 2nd hand, if you 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 A1. This is when an Official Factory Apple Unlock Service is required.

The Official Apple A1 Unlock service removes ALL the network restrictions imposed by A1 and allows your iPhone 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 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 the A1 network.

To unlock your iPhone 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 A1. 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 locked to A1:
  1. Locate your IMEI number (Detailed help on how to find your imei is available here)
  2. Select the Network/Country that your iPhone 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.

    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.

    The unlock completed in a timely fashion but I struggled to get the phone to recognise my new sim. After a few prompt exchanges with customers services and LiveChat it was determined that the new sim I was inserting into the phone had not been activated. I simply borrowed a sim from my colleague and the unlock was recognised straight away. Great company and very professional service

    Wasn't sure I could trust an online site but I was proven wrong. My brother has already unlocked his with them since too.

    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 found cheaper unlocks but not on sites that instilled any confidence in me. I spoke to LiveChat to eliminate any doubts I had and made my order on Monday lunchtime. The service was quoted at 13 working days but I had my unlock confirmation the very next day. Clear and simple instructions to complete the unlock. My phone is an iPhone 4s which WAS locked to O2... not any more!

    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
