    This doesn’t explain in the slightest “how” the IMEI unlock works. This is just a simple guide on “what” to do after the unlock is already processed…..

      Agreed! I came here hoping to read how these unlockers use our IMEI to unlock our phones. I’m think it’s company employees who just punch the number in.

      The IMEI Unlock works in the same way as if your carrier would unlock it.

    Not just any sim card will do the trick. It has to be a sim card from the native carrier!!!

    It will be years before we learn the secrets of unlocking the iPhone behind the scenes. There is alot of money at stake for the ones that hold the secret to that. I’ve got some ideas on how but I personally have not nailed it yet. The ones out of contract are easy. But the new ones like the 5, well that ones gonna be a mystery.

    can you make an unlock for globe telecom carrier (Philippines)?

  6. A tar October 5, 2012 at 12:50 am #

    To get your iPhone unlocked, you have to have the carrier it’s locked to submit a request to apple to unlock your iPhone… The request will contain your phone’s imei# and apple will add it to the list of unlocked iPhones, and when you connect it to iTunes the “congratulations” message will come up on iTunes and your phone will be unlocked… There are a number of iPhone unlockers on google so just google it… I found one for $50 and the person was going to add my phone to the list of unlocked phones just like that
