My iphone 4 has just completed my two year contract with vodafone. However in this time my phone broke and I used apple to repair it. Which in fact is actually a switch service. So now I have a different imei number than what I started with. I rang vodafone to unlock my phone, but they say they can't and there is nothing they can do as the phone was not issued by them. I also can't seem to find a way to unlock my phone via apple. So what can I do??Any help would be awesome!
Factory unlock phone
i dont know why my phone does this. it doesnt happen that frquently, i just had this phone like about a week ago. its like scan lines at the bottom of the screen. it happens where the lock screen is, at the sliding unlock thingy. does anyone know how to fix this?? it happens when its cold.
I contacted Orange UK and they said that this iPhone4 is ready to be unlocked, but they can't unlock the phone because I am not the original contract owner. Why can't Apple unlock this phone, because the original owner doesn't care and has sold it? As far as I understand, I am one of at least 3 owners for this phone. I guess there could be more. I just wanted to have a normal iPhone, why can't Apple help on this issue? I have previously had many apple products, this is the first one I bought used adn just wanted to restore it to normal. Another thing is that 3rd party services can unlock it for 200$. What is that they do to unlock it? Why can't apple make a small comission for unlcoking iPhones instead. People find ways to cheat and ripoff people who doesn't deserve to pay extra for the phone they bought.

I have att iphone 5 and just entered a new contract. I had an iphone 4s that they unlocked for travel to Russia. Now that i have upgraded they will not unlock. Any suggestions?
Folks, I am getting confusing information from various sources.According to the service I am using for factory unlocking my Iphone 5, as soon as I unlock my phone I will be able to use it on all GSM networks, except the original ATT. This is contrary to all the previous unlocks I have ever done on any phone. What is the reason why my phone will no longer work on ATT, if true? Can APPLE or ATT help me get it back on ATT network once I no longer need to use it overseas? Thank you for your help.

I got an iphone 4 from a cousin in the uk so its locked factory locked to a carrier that l dont know how do l unlock it
I have an iPhone 4. This morning I Fell and dropped it and the back cracked. Just about 45 minutes ago, my phone was knocked out of my hand and it fell on the floor. I picked it up and it would vibrate when i would get texts but the screen was black. I had heard somewhere that holding down the home and lock button down would fix the phone if it was frozen. it didn't seem to work. But when I got home I plugged my phone into the computer just to see what would happen. i thought i saw something faint light up on the screen. it looked like a usb cord. so i took the phone into a dark room but i let a little light hit it too. At just the right angle i could see the usb cord with an arrow pointing to an iTunes sign. so I connected it to iTunes on my computer. In just the right angle, I could see that i could unlock my phone. My phone screen was really dark so i tried turning up the brightness but it didnt work. So if just the right light hits the phone i can somewhat see the screen.Out of that light it just looks like the screen is black. I'm thinking that the screen light went out when my phone was kncked out of my hand. any help or advice?
Im about to unlock my phone, how do I back up my iphone 5?
Hey. My iPhone 5 is currently on firmware 6.0.2 and there is an apparent green glow in the lower parts of the lockscreen when I unlock the phone and it gets more prominent if the phone has been unlocked after a longer time. The glow is a lot like the screenshot of other users facing the same problem. Now, I saw that everyone was getting it fixed by asking for a replacement. My problem is, the phone was bought in the UK and I am currently in Bangladesh where there are no official Apple stores. How should I ask for a replacement and what should be the procedure for it? Really would appreciate some help in this matter

Her husband upgraded to iphone 5 so sold his old one to my sister. My sister currently has a blackberry on contract to virgin media here in England. She took her BB along with her new iphhone to a local phone shop They cut her simcard down to size and put it into the iphone. When we turned it on we got this message 'only compatible sim cards from a support carrier....... ' I called our current contract to exdplain what we were intending to do and swap settings from a blackberry to her new iphone... they said we needed to contact the original service provider... here lies our issue. My sister works as a nurse.. she called her collgue to explain all this and ask what network he was on. She doesnot kno and her husband isnt home for another cpl weeks he is military.

My iPhone5 has touchscreen problem, it's started around 2 weeks ago, tortured me, even I can't use it now. Every day, around 7:00-10:00am (sometime it occurred at noon), the touchscreen totallly no reaction, even can't unlock it. I only can chat wit siri -_-''', take phone with headset. I did what I can do to fix it, but doesn't works.. Forced Reset (Hold Home + Power)Restore iPhone via ituneRestore iPhone via itune with FirmwareClear touchscreen -_-'''Del all appsWipe all dataTurn off it, couple hours later, turn on phone (Some time, it is works. But when I can't turn off power usually.)... This problem occurred randomly, when I going to visit apple store, the phone works fine. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? So, I can't exchange a new one back. Anyone has idea how to fix it? or anyone could give me some instruction? Or anyone faced same problem but solved it finally? I have vedio record when the problem happened, so can i show Genius the vedio when i go to apple store? Thanks for all.

I need my phone to be locked in order to use my corporate email system, but I'm not sure if it is.

Hello everyone, I rencently purchased an iphone 5 from a person selling it on craigslist. the iphone is an At&t model and according to the person i bought it from the device is unlock. Is there anyway of telling if this is true without inserting a sim card for a different carrier? Are those websites where one enters the IMEI number a safe way to determine unlock status?

How can I unlock an iphone 4s which is locked on Three network ireland. I have already send a message to Three Ireland and they said to me that they can't find the specific IMEI number. What should I do?
I dropped my iphone 4 a while ago and the back over smashed. I then replaced it myself with a do-it-yourself package off the internet. The phone has since developed other issues with reception, signal, and a broken front camera and hold/unlock button. Will Apple replace my iPhone for these faults or would they be unable to due to the damage that was previously caused?
