Best Carrier Unlock Services for iPhoneandrewsmith This list of top unlocking websites for iPhone (many will also unlock other mobile devices), should help you avoid scams. Carrier unlocks aren't cheap, and in some instances cost well over $50. So, this list and user reviews can help weed out untrustworthy guys out there.
A legit carrier unlock, often referred to as SIM unlock, GSM unlock, IMEI unlock etc., is always performed by the respective carrier and NOT by installing some software on your device. The U.S. carriers include AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and many prepaid carriers. When you buy your iPhone, it may be locked or unlocked depending on the carrier. If you need to go abroad and want to use a local SIM card, you will need to have your iPhone unlocked. If you bought a second-hand iPhone from eBay and very cheaply, it may be because it is locked and you will need to find a service to unlock it or promptly return that device to the seller (since you won't be able to use it freely). If the device is blacklisted (reported lost or stolen) it may not be used on U.S. networks even after it has been carrier unlocked.
Unlike Samsung phones, Apple iPhones do not need any code to be unlocked. The unlock is synced via iTunes by means of simply connecting your iPhone to iTunes for a few seconds.
