Unlock iphone

kazakov

    Hello. I got it on ebay iphone, the proprietor claimed that the phone was unlocked. As it turned out, the phone was locked on t-mobile. Prodovets refuses to assist in unlocking the phone, still claims that it is unlocked. I want to know how to unlock the phone so that I can use it in Russia with Russian mobile operators. Thank you in advance for your support. Imei: 359168070308731

        That imei doesn't show in T-Mobile imei tool. Are you sure it is locked to them?  Usually that means T-Mobile didn't sell it.

        If it is a T-Mobile lock and being you are not a customer,  you will not be able to get it unlocked by T-Mobile. You will need to find a site online that you can purchase an unlock from.

            I thought the seller can call t-mobile support and he will be able to sort this out. And he said the phone is now yours and this is your problem.

                If the seller is unwilling then there is nothing T-Mobile can do. The original owner is the only one that can work with T-Mobile to get it unlocked through them. Unless the seller can see if they meet the requirements for unlock and work with T-Mobile to do so,  your only option would be to find a service online to buy the unlock from.
