How to Carrier Unlock Your iPhone:

  1. Getting the IMEI number

    The first step to unlock your phone and officially remove carrier locks is to get the IMEI number from your mobile device. To do this simply dial *#06# on your phone as if you were making a regular phone call. Now if you can't access the phone dialer for some reason, you can retrieve the IMEI number on older iPhones such as the 5S and 5C by looking at the back sticker. It is written in small print right under the Apple Logo. In newer iPhones, you can retrieve this number by taking out the sim card tray. The IMEI number is written in small print on the side of the SIM card tray. You are looking for a 15 digit number that usually starts with 35... for newer iPhones like the iPhone 7 and starts with 01... for older iPhones models like the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPhone 6.

    After dialing *#06# on your iPhone you will see that your 15 digit number will appear on the screen. This number is important so right it down because you will need it on the website to order the Official network unlock iPhone services. You can also go to settings > General > About section as shown below:

  6. Connecting to a PC

    Once you open the email that confirms that your iPhone is unlocked successfully and now the last step is to connect the phone to the internet to activate the unlock. Before doing that you will need to remove your old sim card and insert a sim card from a new carrier (other than the one is it locked to). If you do not know where the SIM slot is located see the image above. Since you will not have DATA on the new sim yet, you will need to find a WIFI signal. Connect to Wi-Fi using your iPhone and follow the activation prompts on screen. The second way that you can activate your phone is using iTunes. Simply connect your iPhone to your computer. Once you have restored your device the process is completed. You will get the message saying that your iPhone has been unlocked and you will be able to use it with any compatible network carrier worldwide.

In that case, your carrier may not want you to unlock it for they fear you will run away to another carrier without actually paying the remaining balance owed on your iPhone!
