iPhone Unlock Chip Method

unlock iPhone sim chip

The iPhone Unlock Chip Method of unlocking an iPhone involves purchasing a passthrough card or SIM interposer.

You purchase one of these special passthrough cards that essentially sits on top of your SIM card.  In order to maintain this sort of unlock you must always keep the card between your SIM card and SIM card tray.

This method of unlocking has become more popular because our new Unlock Chip now  supports the latest iOS versions, functions perfectly, it is  less expensive and  you can always use this same chip on other iPhones.

 For example if in the future you buy a new iPhone or get your iPhone replaced by Apple then you can remove the CHIP from your old phone and place it into your new phone easily.  

Some older Sim Chips were known to have issues, meaning they would suddenly stop working or they would not support all of Apples features such as iMessage etc. CanadaUnlocking.com is happy to have released the latest iPhone Sim Chip which works with all iOS versions.

It is the smallest and most powerful unlock chip to date, it has been rigorously tested and has proven to be the most reliable chip ever made.  

To put our money where our mouth is, we are also offering a 3 month replacement warranty on them. Also it supports all of the iPhones great features such as iMessage.  To date there is no noticeable difference in features between our sim chip and a Factory unlock by IMEI.

Hardware-Unlocking an iPhone without software

The unlock by SIM chip is also called a Hardware unlock.  It has become a very popular option since our latest updated software allows the iPhone to be unlocked seemlessly.  We are even able to update the SIM chip  on your own so that in the event of a future iOS unlock the phone would still work on other networks.

Recently we have made a new discovery on  Apple’s iOS platform which allows any device to be factory unlocked to any network by using our SIM chip and directly modifying the ICCID. Once unlocked, the device will still continue to work, even when the SIM chip is removed, still allowing you to use  any network’s SIM card.

Best of all, it doesn’t require jailbreak to work, and is compatible with all iPhones (including the X) and works up to iOS 11.4.1 as well as iOS 12 and later updates.

If a future update becomes incompatible, then simply re-insert the SIM chip and change the ICCID number. Simply contact us for this new ICCID number in the future if needed.

Here are the steps to Update the iPhone ICCID number

  1. Insert a unsupported SIM with the SIM Chip into a locked iPhone
  2. Launch the "Phone Dialer" and type *5005*7672*99# and then hit the GREEN Call button then tap edit ICCID at the bottom of the page
  3. When prompted enter in the following numbers:  8901-4104-2778-0604-3133
  4. Hit send anfter entering the above code and then before Restarting the device tap on "ACCEPT" in the bottom RIGHT corner and then follow the setup
  5. Once you are back at the Home screen, remove the SIM chip and now you can use the previously unsupported SIM card

Now your iPhone has been unlocked by the SIM chip method.  We should also mention that this isn’t entirely permanent and if you do a factory reset the device  will be locked again, but that's not a real problem since you can just insert your SIM chip in again to unlock it.
