It is not only important to learn the final cost to Unlock an iPhone, but also to be 100% sure that the IMEI Unlock provider you will choose is legitimate, trusted and verified! The only requirements from your end is to know the IMEI number of your iPhone and the Mobile Network (Carrier) that blocks it (Use an iPhone IMEI GSX Check service, to identify the Network-Lock of your iPhone and its Blacklist status. Then, you will be able to know how much it will cost you to unlock it (Cheapest available market price).).

Cost to Unlock an iPhone – Pick the right IMEI Unlock Provider

There must be over a hundred IMEI Unlock providers that I have found, without taking into account the iPhone Unlock sellers in the eBay.

Since I am in the iPhone unlocking community for over 8 years, I have a very good knowledge of all the legitimate IMEI Unlock providers and I can tell you that the cost to Unlock an iPhone hasn’t been steady all those years. In fact, some mobile networks had great fluctuations. For instance, the cost to Unlock an iPhone which is locked on Softbank Japan network was around $200 and now you can find it from $69.

I managed to create a tool that is able to search the most popular and verified IMEI Unlock providers, and based on your request to provide you the cheapest solution for your iPhone and Mobile Network. It does not have a pre-defined cost to Unlock an iPhone for a specific Mobile Network, it actually scans the offers of all IMEI Unlock providers in real-time and suggests you which one has the lowest price.

    I’ve been interested in learning how to unlock iPhones myself for a while. I’ve tried to research the subject but am not able to find any information. Could you please explain the actual process if I wanted to unlock my iPhone myself?

    1. Zisis ( User Karma: 54996 ) says:

      Hey Adam,

      If you have an iPhone 4 and above, then I am afraid that you cannot unlock your iPhone on your own. Software method cannot be applied to iPhone 4 and above models, so you will have to order an Official IMEI Unlock service.

      This is a paid service, because not anyone can do it.

      If you can find someone to make you a free Official IMEI Unlock, then you must inform him the network that blocks your iPhone, its blacklist status, if your iPhone has pending contract bills and if it is in-contract.

      All those information, can be retrieved only by an iPhone IMEI full Check, which again, there is not such a software tool that can give you those info. Access on Apple’s GSX servers can only be granded to certified Apple partners.

      You will have to find an IMEI Check Service Company and an Official IMEI Unlock company, and ask them if they can do those services for free, which is not possible, because they have to pay some money to access those services.

      I hope that helped you Adam!

      Hey emily,

      It sounds like a problem with the Jailbreking and Unlocking procedure.

      You will have to make a full restore through iTunes, and if that does not work, you will have to restore it through a Jailbreaking tool (like redsn0w)

      Hello Karthik,

      What Japan network you want to unlock? Softbank Japan is supported by the Worldwide iPhone Unlock Method and KDDI from the Official IMEI Method.

      I suggest to use our iHelp tool, which is for FREE and it will troubleshoot your iPhone and propose you the right service so you can start using your iPhone again. Go to our FREE iHelp Troubleshoot Tool.

    Hello I recently purchased an iphone 6s second-hand that I later came to find out was black listed as lost/stolen. I’ve managed to get the UDID information (thanks to your helpful resources) and am wondering how I can now get the contact information of the original owner. Thanks for all of your help

    1. Makis ( User Karma: 11 ) says:

      Hi, Levi!
      From what I guess, your iPhone is blacklisted and iCloud Locked!
      So far, so good my friend! The first obstacle is the iCloud Activation Lock and you must not proceed with a Premium IMEI Unlock Service unless the iCloud Lock is disabled by the original owner!
      If the original owner continues to ignore you, send a Formal iCloud Lock Removal Request to Apple!
      Apple will arrange a meeting between the two of you or even remove the Find My iPhone Activation Lock if you meet the conditions!
      Keep me updated and I also wish you the best holidays ever with a fully unlocked iPhone!!!
      Take care Levi!
