FAQ iPhone unlocking
How do I unlock my iPhone?
Unlocking your iPhone with doctorSIM is as easy as 1-2-3! Select the model of your iPhone, fill in a short form and then pay using your preferred payment method, Apple Pay included. We'll then authorize the unlocking on Apple's server and once completed we'll send you step-by-step instructions on how to complete the process.
What do I need to unlock my iPhone?
All you need is a WiFi Internet connection and the SIM card of a different network carrier. If you don't have WiFi, you can connect your PC to iTunes using a USB cable. iTunes will connect to the servers at Apple, applying the unlocking for your iPhone.
Why unlock my iPhone at doctorSIM.com and not in a store?
The unlocking method used by doctorSIM is recommended by Apple. It is legal, permanent, doesn't void the phone's warranty and isn't invalidated by future software updates. Additionally, your iPhone is never out of your sight because you unlock it yourself and if you need any help you can contact our customer support for assistance.
How do I know if my iPhone has been blacklisted?
Your iPhone may have been reported stolen, lost or due to an unpaid bill by the original network carrier. If this is the case, even unlocked, you won't be able to make calls with your iPhone. If you are unsure if your iPhone is on the blacklist, either check with your carrier or find out using our free blacklist iPhone check .
How do I find out to which network carrier my iPhone is locked?
In order to unlock your iPhone, it is very important that you select the original operator your iPhone is locked to (the network carrier that sold you the iPhone). Unfortunately, we cannot cancel or issue refunds for unlocking requests if the network carrier indicated is incorrect. If you don't know, verify this information with our iPhone original carrier check before submitting your unlocking request.
What happens if I am under contract with my network?
You can still unlock your iPhone even if you have signed a fixed-term contract with your current network carrier. You will have to pay your monthly bills until the contract expires, but at the same time, you'll be able to use your iPhone with other networks. If you stop paying your monthly bills, the carrier will almost certainly blacklist the iPhone and you won't be able to use it in the country where it was purchased.
Do your unlocking services remove the iCloud Activation Lock?
iPhones and iPads with the Find My iPhone feature enabled include additional protection called 'Activation Lock' which prevents users that do not have the original Apple ID and password from using the device.
Unfortunately, doctorSIM cannot disable the iCloud Activation Lock on Apple devices as it is illegal for a third-party unlocking company to provide this service.
If you cannot remember your ID or password, please contact Apple for support
