FAQ iPhone unlocking

How do I unlock my phone?

Unlocking your phone with doctorSIM is as easy as 1-2-3! Select the make and model of your iPhone, fill in a short form and then pay for the unlocking using your preferred payment method. We’ll then authorize the unlocking on Apple’s server and once completed we’ll send to your e-mail step-by-step instructions on how to permanently unlock your iPhone.

What do I need to unlock my iPhone?

All you need is a WiFi internet connection and the SIM card of a different network provider. If you don’t have WiFi, you can connect your PC to iTunes using a USB cable. iTunes will connect with the servers at Apple, applying the unlocking for your phone.

Why unlock my phone at and not in a store?

The unlocking method used by doctorSIM is recommended by the phone manufacturers themselves. It is legal, permanent, doesn’t void the phone’s warranty and isn’t invalidated by future software updates. Additionally, your phone is never out of your sight because you unlock the phone yourself and if you need any help you can contact our first-class customer support team by telephone, e-mail or chat any day of the week.

How do I know if my iPhone has been reported?

Check here if your iPhone has been reported.
Your iPhone may have been reported stolen, lost or due to an unpaid bill with the original phone’s network provider. If this is the case, even unlocked, you won’t be able to make calls with your phone.

How do I find out to which network provider my iPhone is locked?

In order to unlock your iPhone, it is very important that you select the original network provider your iPhone is locked to (the network provider that sold you the phone). Unfortunately, we cannot cancel or issue refunds for unlocking requests if the original network provider indicated is incorrect. If you are unsure, use our Network Operator service before making your unlocking request.

What happens if I have a fixed-term contract with my network provider?

You can still unlock your phone even if you have signed a fixed-term contract with your network provider. 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 network providers. If you stop paying your monthly bills, your phone will be reported and you won’t be able to use it to make calls.

What is the iPhone Premium Service?

Our iPhone Premium Service is a more advanced unlocking service available for those phones which cannot be unlocked by the standard service. This service may be required if your phone has received technical support from Apple or you have signed a fixed-term contract with your network operator. We always recommend trying the standard service first because it is less expensive and has a success rate close to 95%.

How to unlock a iPhone 5 by IMEI

The arrival of the iPhone 5 on September 12, 2012, put a huge smile on the faces of Apple fans all over the world. Expectations were extremely high during the months leading up to the official launch but the Cupertino tech giant was once again able to exceed them. Preceding the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C and succeeding the iPhone 4S, the iPhone 5 was the sixth generation of iPhone manufactured by Apple.

At doctorSIM, you can unlock your iPhone 5 in less than two minutes. Just send us the information indicated and within a guaranteed timeframe we will send you simple step-by-step instructions to your email explaining how to complete the unlocking process. It couldn't be easier!

A larger 4-inch screen with a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels, a lighter, thinner aluminum shell (only 112 grams), the A6 chip, EarPods, and a new phone jack replacing the 30-pin dock connector are just a few of the significant design changes compared to the iPhone 4S. The battery was also upgraded allowing for up to 8 hours of talk time on 3G, 8 hours on 4G LTE, and 10 hours over WiFi.

Although promoted as "the biggest thing to happen to the iPhone since the original iPhone" and being more affordable, the price for an iPhone 5 was predictably high. Nonetheless, that didn't stop five million units being sold in the first three days of release. You have almost certainly upgraded or switched to another make by now, but if you still have an iPhone 5 locked to one network lying around the house or office, why not put it to good use by unlocking it with doctorSIM.

The benefits of an unlocked phone are well documented with the possibility of getting up to 30% more for it on the second-hand market being the stand out reason. Once unlocked, it will also work perfectly well on any network in the world.
