Unlocking policies with the various networks differ greatly. If you bought an iPhone locked to a network in 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 . This is when an Official Factory Apple Unlock Service is required.

The Official Apple Unlock service removes ALL the network restrictions imposed by 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 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 . 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 :
  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.

Most iPhones in Japan are sold locked to a single mobile phone network. Even if you bought a phone on a 'next tether' agreement, this will still lock your iPhone to the network of the first SIM you insert. If you want to swap networks or use a SIM card from a different network, whether in Japan or anywhere in the world, first you will need to unlock your iPhone.

If your iPhone is currently locked to one of these networks, you can unlock it with an IMEI unlock here.

    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 was referred to this site by my friend so was already confident that this was not one of the many scam sites out there. They did exaclty what they promised and unlocked my phone from Vodafone very quickly. I now too, can confidently recommend this service and its results. Simply don't go anywhere else!

    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 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!

    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!!

    My EE iPhone that is still in contract was unlocked in just 3 days when EE would not even enterain it. Bit expensive but less than I'd found elsewhere and the price was justified when it was explained to me that the handset is heavily subsidised when purchased on a contract.
