There are certain companies that sell locked iPhones. These smartphones can only be used with one network, and we all know that this is not convenient. There are a lot of folks who claim to be able to unlock these iPhones, but they are mostly scams. You can unlock iPhones, including the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 7 and 7 Plus by yourself, for a small price.
Note that free software to unlock iPhones does not work anymore. Ever since iOS 7 was released, these programs ceased to be effective, as Apple updated the script for the operating system. So don’t bother with the free software you see online that claim to unlock iPhones.
The carriers that lock these devices can unlock them for you. All you need to do is pay the fees required of the device by the company. This will enable the company to whitelist your device.
Also, you can unlock your iPhone 6 using the IMEI. Just follow the following instructions:
- Find out the IMEI of your device
- Visit the official website for iPhone 6s unlocking, gounlockboot.com/unlock-iphone-6s.
- Enter your IMEI and your personal details on the website. You will receive an email when the device is unlocked.
- Insert your new SIM card and connect to WiFi or iTunes to aactivte the device.
There are several websites where you can check if your device is locked or unlocked. Just visit any of these sites, select your iPhone model and input your IMEI. The site would show you the carrier status of your device. Remember that free unlocking of iPhones is not really possible, so don’t even bother trying.
