Today, MacExpertGuide will help you to unlock your iPhone 6, iPhone 6S (plus) by writing this article which will tell you everything about unlocking an iPhone.
Actually this guideline works with all iPhones from 3GS to 6S or even newest models in the future because we’re talking about “official – factory iPhone unlocking method”.
Who need to read this tip?
This tip will help anyone having an iPhone with “SIM-Locked” problem or iCloud activation lock.
Why my iPhone is locked?
Most of people will buy a Locked iPhone with a carrier contract because it’s cheaper than buying a factory-unlocked iPhone from Apple. Then we’ll have a big trouble when deciding to switch to other network or just simply can’t use the iPhone when traveling.
Your iPhone IMEI number (An Unique Identification number of your iPhone – Dialing *#06# to see it) will be stored at your carrier database and marked as SIM-Locked. Everytime your iPhone connects to Internet, it’ll automatically send a request to ask the carrier if the iPhone is Locked or Unlocked.
So the only and official way to permanently unlock your iPhone is whitelisting your IMEI number from your carrier.
For iCloud activation lock, it maybe you forgot your iCloud password or bought the iPhone from someone else and you’re not able to open it. Then you can not use your iPhone anymore!
In this case, the only way is removing that iCloud account from the device from Apple activation database.
Now we know the reason of the problem, so please don’t ever think about using Software, Jailbreak, Tricks… to unlock your iPhone because they’re all SCAM and never work!
Unlock iPhone 6/6S (Plus) guideline
In some cases, you can directly contact your carrier (For SIM-Lock) or Apple (For iCloud activation lock) to solve your problem. But most of case, the problem will not be solved, so we’ll need to use a 3nd party service.
Price range: From $0 to $45 (Depending on your carrier, phone model…)
Customer review: 9.4 / 10 (Verified by Google Shopping)
Timeframe: 1-5 days
I already used their service and everything was so smooth, good communication and fast delivery. The website looks nice, friendly and easy to use. All you have to do is just:
- Go to iPhoneIMEI.net
- Click “Unlock iPhone” or “Unlock iCloud” (It’s up to your case)
- Enter your IMEI number (Dialing *#06# to get the IMEI, if the iPhone isn’t actived yet, simply tap to the little “i” button on the first screen)
- Select your network (If SIM-lock) and your iPhone model
- Click “Unlock now” and follow the progress
You don’t have to do anything then, just leave the iPhone and wait for the email (You may be received an email saying the iPhone is unlocked after a few hours to a few days).
At last, just simply connect your iPhone to iTunes and you’ll see a message “Congratulations! Your iPhone has been unlocked” like the picture below:
