I just recently submitted a request for T-Mobile to send me my unlock code but I have a few questions before proceeding:
1. Does unlocking a T-Mobile iPhone 5 require erasing the device at all? Does the actual process of unlocking result in any type of data loss?
2. After my device is SIM unlocked, does the iPhone 5 still receive updates from Apple without a problem? Does unlocking the iPhone effect any updates or anything else service related?
I am just use to Android devices where these things are effected. Any info is greatly appreciated.
Thats a great question, I wouldn't want my data erased either. Good news that this unlock will not erase any of your data on your phone. The second answer is that the phone is still eligible to receive T-mobile updates. You can find how to here Apple iOS 6 Software Overview: iPhone
you need to do a back up on itunes first then restore iphone and you will get a notice of unlock then your good to go
i bought an Iphone 5 from a friend in US, and came to FIJI.
How can i unlock it to use on our network here.
appreciate your assistance.
can you advise on how can we submit a request to T-Mobile to send me my unlock code please.
That's a great question, I can see why you would want your Iphone unlocked. T-mobile follows the process listed in the below link. Which may involve proof of purchase or active T-mobile service.
You do need to be a T-Mobile customer to unlock the device.
If the person you got it from is still a customer you might ask them to request it for you.
I bought it from Craigslist in Sacremento, but dont the person.
any suggestions and also i have upgraded my iphone to IOS 6.1.4
If you are not a T-Mobile customer you will not be able to get a unlock code from then for free.
You will need to either get T-Mobile service and meet the requirements or buy a unlock code from a online code provider
does T-mobile sell unlock code online??
Also, can IOS 6.1.4 iphone be unlocked??
No T-Mobile does not sell the codes.
You will need to find a different company that does.
That is not dependent on the software version you are running.
Until you hack the software that is the only time that would mater.
As theartiszan has said, we do not sell the codes
You can temporarily use our services to meet requirements (although we suggest sticking around, we are pretty awesome) and then you can file. Thanks!
what if i pay you guys and get my phone activated...since iam not living in US
Needs to be active on T-Mobile service and you can't being you are not in the USA.
You need to find a service like cellunlocker.net to buy one from or Google how to hack the software.
