[Update] Hey guys, if you want to ensure that your unlock stays forever (even if Apple makes your IMEI uneligable again, download SAM Prefs by going to Cydia and adding the source “http://repo.bingner.com”.
Then after you install (you must reboot) you have to go into the app (should be a SIM card) and tap “utilities” and then backup activation. Your NCK (unlock) will be sent to the cloud where it can be restored later. 🙂
Hey guys, well, as you may have heard, there are now new ways to unlock your iPhone! Now, this is a great service, why? You don’t need to care about baseband updates anymore!
Once you are unlocked via IMEI, then all you have to do is plug it into iTunes.
Today, I will be reviewing an unlocking service, unlock-network.com.
Unlock-Network.com is a very well organized company that was great to work with. They are also very reliable and were the only ones that I felt could handle my personal information.
Now, I’ve made a video showing you how the whole process happens:
So basically, this is how it all works. You go to Unlock-Network.com and you choose which device you want to unlock (in my case, it was the iPhone 3G [S]). Then, you just enter your IMEI (to find your IMEI, dial *#06# on your iPhone) and then choose which network the phone is locked to. (Everyone in the U.S. should click “AT&T/Cingular”.)
Then, you have the option to pay with either PayPal or Google Checkout. It will be $174.99 for an iPhone.
Now, it may look like a steep price at first, but keep in mind that if you live in the U.S. you would have to pay atleast $1,000 for a phone from another country. If you want to have a 32 GB model, then it goes up to $1,500, at least.
It’s a good deal that can potentially save you hundreds.
Now, the unlock is performed remotely, to finish the unlocking process, plug your iPhone into an internet-enabled computer and sync with iTunes.
It’s incredibly easy and I can confirm that this works 100%! It took a matter of hours for me to recieve my confirmation that it was unlocked.
They advertise a 24-48 hours delivery time. They will also give you your money back if the unlock doesn’t work for any reason.
This will work on all baseband versions (they even advise you to update to iOS 4.3.1/4.3.2 before unlocking) and it will work on any and all models of the iPhone 3G [S] and iPhone 4.
So there you go guys! Happy unlocking!
Thanks to Unlock-Network.com for the unlock!
