Many people are wondering which iPhones are unlocked right out of the box and how to unlock them. Here is a detailed guide that you should follow for the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.

AT&T
Unlocked: If purchased from Apple store full retail price device only
Locked: If purchased from Apple at the subsidized price, AT&T, or any other 3rd party retailer
Note: Can be unlocked very fast and very cheap using remote IMEI Unlock sites. (does not matter whether iPhone is in contract or not)
Carrier: AT&T will unlock your iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C once your contract is completed per request. Unlock works for any GSM carrier, US or other countries.

Verizon
Unlocked: No matter where purchased or at what price, ALL Verizon iPhone 5S models and iPhone 5C models are unlocked right out of the box. Even if they are bought from Verizon or 3rd party retailers at the subsidized price. Can never be carrier locked. The is due to an FCC requirement for Verizon LTE phones.

T-Mobile
Unlocked: If purchased from Apple. The iPhone is only sold to T-Mobile customers at full retail price by Apple, no EIP financing through Apple. Thus coming from Apple, the iPhone 5S that has a T-Mobile sim card is factory unlocked out of the box.
Locked: If purchased from a T-Mobile retail store whether financing or at full retail price. Phone will be LOCKED.
Carrier: T-Mobile allows you to request an unlock for your phone after 40 days of service with the carrier. Unlock works for any GSM carrier. US and other countries.

Sprint
Unlocked: This phone can ONLY be unlocked by at the discretion of Sprint. After 90 days of service and paying your bill on time Sprint will allow you to request an unlock of your iPhone.
Locked: This phone will be locked no matter where or how you purchased it. Full retail or subsidized.
Note: Even when Sprint ‘unlocks’ your iPhone, it is only for international use. It CANNOT be used on domestic GSM carriers like AT&T or T-Mobile. This means that in the USA your phone can only be used on Sprint even if it is unlocked. No exceptions.

    Will both models of A1533’s work on verizon wireless as long as you have the correct sims card? Will there be any lose of features or available network bands if I use the GSM model on Verizon? Or are these actually the same phone with no differences except the Sims card?

    Thanks for the help.

        Thanks,

        Its been more than a little confusing when Apple Tech Dept. didn’t know that the Verizon system phone come unlocked as per FCC rules and they gave me incorrect model numbers for Verizon I Phones. To add insult to injury Verizon Didn’t have a clue either. I found the two critical model numbers for getting the correct Verizon I Phone 5 S. They are A1533 CDMA and ME344LL/A with the Me number used by Verizon to Identify their networks I Phone.

        Thanks again for your help. I was really hoping that the great pricing on the A1533 GSM would have worked for my needs, but no such luck.

    Hello, I have an iPhone 5S Silver ME436B/A bought in UK. The phone seems unlocked and I used with different sims in UK, but when I arrived in Africa, it worked only with Orange (Uganda). I am in Rwanda now, but it can accept any of the local SIM cards (MTN, Tigo and Airtel). It tells me that the SIM card is invalid! What can I do?

  15. Sam says

    My friend received a Verizon iPhone 5S as a gift from a relative and although the phone will work on AT&T’s network, data is 4G only and not LTE. The larger problem for him is that AT&T’s voicemail doesn’t function on the Verizon phone. Any ideas?
