IPhone :: Will O2 Unlock 3GS Officially?

Jul 12, 2010

Right, I shall soon be selling my 3GS to buy a certain other Apple branded phone.Before I do so, I want to know if O2 will officially unlock my iPhone 3GS, and for how much? I got it almost a year ago on pay as you go. I did try Googling and searching the forum, BTW, but I found a lot of conflicting information and a lot more results that were simply irrelevant.

IPhone :: How To Officially Unlock 4 Without Sim

Apr 11, 2012

I would like to unlock my iphone 4 but I don't have the original sim it was locked to nor I know the carrier. I bought it in the UK.

how I can officially unlock my iphone?

I am prepared to pay but I don't really trust what comes up on the Internet so does anyone know any trustworthy and official online unlocker service I could contact? Or any other way to have it unlocked?

iPhone 4, iOS 5.1, modem firmware 4.12.01

IPhone :: Officially Unlock USA While In Europe?

Jan 8, 2010

as many people on this board should know; in other countries, namely European ones, they have much more consumer friendly laws/practices regarding unlocking phones. in most of them they are required to unlock your iPhone for free after they recoup the subsidy or at the very least after your contract is up. the specific laws by country .when they do this they take your IMEI number from your specific iphone, contact apple in some way, and apple plugs your IMEI into the itunes servers, and the next time you plug your iphone into itunes while you have an internet connection it unlocks your iphone permanently forever (so long as your IMEI number stays on file i suppose).in America we have no laws regarding locking/unlocking phones, aside from the dmca amendment (clarification) from November 2006 that expires in three years that says Unlocking your phone yourself is legal (was it renewed?).

In practice in the usa every phone i cant think of either has an unlock code that you can input into the device at any time to unlock it, or the cell company will unlock it for you at the end of your contract or sometimes if you are traveling internationally. of course, the iPhone is the ONE PHONE that at&t refuses to unlock after the contract, unlike its other phones. when the iphone first came out they said they would but a day later their spokesperson had to publicly state he was wrong and that they would NOT unlock iphones under ANY circumstance and that has been the case ever since. even the phones you can buy without a contract are locked to at&t.***my question is this: in some countries you can pay and have your iphone unlocked at any time. if i take my American iphone to Europe can i pay to have my phone "officially" unlocked? will they refuse to do it unless i am on their European network? will apple reject my IMEI because they know its activated to USA at&t and purchased in America with an at&t contract? it seems like even the newest jailbreak and unlock (blackra1n, blacksn0w) are buggy, so i donít want to do it. all i really care about is being able to use foreign sim cards and not getting but traped by having to use at&t's overpriced international plan. the international plan DOES NOT include data roaming (or does it not include data at all?), and your email updates automatically. i know you can turn off data roaming but there have been reports of the switch magically turning itself on. even if you accidently slide it on for a second and you switch it off if your iphone dls ONE MEGABYTE of data during that time it could cost 27 dollars!!!

also, this horrific nightmare scenario could happen. Iím not sure if at&t or apple or the gsm carrier in Bermuda fixed this, and i know all you have to do is explain what happened to at&t in the above case and they will zero out your bill but its still a monumental headache. also there have been hazy reports of this happening to other people in other countries. I am a big nerd and very tech savy and i LOVE cellphones, i previously had an enV with hacked free internet and free navigation. i consider the inability to "officially" unlock American iphones to be its biggest drawback, and a BIG one at that. after the contract they should have to offer you an unlock, not doing so creates tech waste. forcing people to get expensive international plans that donít even include data, a basic function of the iphone, is VERY greedy of at&t.

IPhone :: IP4 UK Apple Officially Unlocked Device VS Unlock Device

Jun 22, 2010

I have missed the 24th preorder date and I was wondering if by any chance even 1 in million manage to get on hold of a payg iphone 4 (uk) from a carrier like orange, 3 etc. Is there a difference having an officially unlocked iphone from apple vs an ultrasn0w etc. unlock device?? (other than any ethical/moral issues ). Any specific stuff that I will not be able to perform with such an unlock?, any downsides like slowdowns (if itís a 24/7 background running service etc) ?

I know that O2 official unlock iphones for $15, but I havenít found any certain info on the other carriers. (note: the phone will not be used to UK at all, so some proposed actions from carriers like: ďuse the phone for 3 months with the carrier and then ask for an unlockĒ will not work in my case.)

IPhone :: How To Figure Out Phone Is Unlocked Officially

Jun 12, 2010

I bought a second hand Iphone 3gs which is working fine on other carrier (not AT&T) . So I know its not locked, it also came with Cydia installed so I know its jailbroken. But in Cydia I don't see any of the unlock Packages or Sources that are supposed to be used to unlock the iphone. Does that mean its officially unlocked? Right now its on 3.1 (7C144) and modem firmware 05.11.07.

IPhone :: After Unlocking Officially My 3GS OS 4.3 Applications Cannot Be Started?

Apr 14, 2012

In order to change my provider, i asked to Bouygues France, to unlock my phone (not jailbreak)I respected the process and obtained the apple right message in Itunes, it was correctly unlocked. I tested another SIM card, it was ok.All was ok since my iphone powered down.Then, i cannot launch the downloaded applications, i can only launch the integrated ones.I tried some tricks like :- reset iphone- uninstall/reinstall app- app update- authorize pc on tunes My last backup is very old. Should i restore it? If I restore, will the phone go back to the "locked" state?Any other trick ? Someone encountered the same issue?I'm very disappointed with this issue, i thought that unlocking an iphone was really without risk

Motorola :: Photon 4G Officially Not Getting Upgraded

Sep 29, 2012

So now that Motorola has announced its plan of not upgrading this phone. What are the choices for the customers who have this phone and are having problems with it? The least Motorola should do, is to issue a credit and let the consumer to upgrade to a phone no matter which brand is it.Also to provide the necessary drivers and software to the developer community - (open up the phone)So other developers/ Hobbyist can deliver - what you said you cannot.Owners of Atrix, Electrify and Photon 4G, are not coming back, because Motorola cannot be trusted. Owners of these devices including myself are not coming back to buy ANY Motorola devices.

Look around on the various forums and websites alike, People are piss, after having the Firmware under development" for almost 9 months a week before release Motorola change their mind and customers do not take that lightly.

Xperia Pro/Neo/V/L :: Unlock Screen Takes Multiple Attempts To Unlock Phone?

Oct 24, 2011

When ever I try to unlock (dragging lock button from left to right) , I am unable to unlock in one go. It is taking multiple attemts to unlock my phone.I also observed that when I get to call, to cancel dragging the icon from right to left this is required multiple attempts.i.e many time dragging icon from right to left.

I don't know whether it is software problem or hardware. I have tried the repair operation also. my xperia neo is uptodate and running 2.3.4 os.I also tried to un install apps but I couldn't find any difference.Also once I unlock, those 5 screens, I can scroll inbetween and can touch home button. But when I long press on the screen to add widget/folder I am unable to do it as soon as I unlock phone. It is taking some time to respond.

As I purchased this phone in UK and using it in India, I am not sure how much service I can get in india from SE.I have bill for the mobile too.in other posts somebody told me to remove yahoo and i did the same but didn't find any difference.in short the touch scence is not responsive during unlock and for a while once get the home screen. I also installed andvance task killer app and killing apps frequently that also not making any help.
