When you buy a phone from a network provider either on pay as you go or contract, you will most likely be locked to their network. This is to keep you as their customer which is understable however sometimes other networks have much better deals but you are unable to switch providers as your phone is locked to a specific network. This is where phone unlocking comes into it. Phone unlocking is incredibly simple and you can do it at home with ease. Simply follow our guide below to unlock iPhone 4. The same process is followed for each phone however please go to the correct guide on our website for the phone that you own otherwise it may not work as there is sometimes slight variations in the unlocking process.
In order to unlock your iPhone 4 you will need the IMEI number. You can get this in a few different ways, the easiest is to dial *#06# and call it, your IMEI number will then display on the screen. You can also find it in your settings menu and it is also written in the SIM card tray of your iPhone. Once you’ve got the IMEI number you’ll be able to unlock your iPhone.
Step 1) Insert a foreign sim card. (One which is not supported by you iPhone) For example your phone is locked to the EE network, you’ll then need to insert a Vodaphone SIM.
Step 2) The Phone should now request an unlock code. (If not don’t worry!)
