I bought this year an iPhone in Japan, through SoftBank
with a contract. A few weeks ago I moved back to Germany
and tried using a prepaid-card, which didnt work, because
theres a SIM-Lock blocking it.
One question is, in Germany, usually when you buy a phone
and pay it off immidiately, it is unlocked. Isnt it everywhere
And my second question is, is apple able to do something for me?
I called a few days ago in the US, to figure out what I could do,
because I cant use it at all right now.
She told me, I would have to call my old provider, which is SoftBank,
to talk to them. Well, when we bought the phones, I already asked,
how it would work, if I wanna use it in Germany and she said,
that unlocking the phone is illegal at all in Japan.
I know, its not legal to unlock it, but in Germany when you buy
a phone with a conract, it is unlocked and when you buy pre-paid,
it is locked.
What can I do? It is a half year old, am I gonna throw it
