      Hey Ooi (Weird nickname!),

      The Softbank Japan Network is supported by the WorldWide iPhone Unlocking Service, which is similar to the Official IMEI Method.

      There are a few restrictions to this method, so please read them carefully:
      -You will not be able to update your iOS version after the Unlock
      -You will not be able to use iTunes after the Unlock (Restore, Sync or other action)
      -You will have to Activate/Unlock your iPhone within 24hours of the Notification of the Unlock that we will send you
      -The Activation should be made through WiFi, NOT through iTunes, because it will get relocked.

      Before making the order, you will have to do the following:
      -Update your iPhone to the latest iOS version
      -Disable the “Find My iPhone” feature

      Hello prabakar,

      Your iPhone can be unlocked with the iCloud Activation Screen Lock Removal services.

      The iCloud Lock Removal service supports ONLY CLEAN devices and all iPhone models.

      This means that you must be 100% sure that the iCloud Status of your iPhone is CLEAN (NOT LOST/STOLEN/ERASED). If you do not know that information, you can order a simple iPhone IMEI Check from HERE.

      After the Unlock, the iCloud Activation Screen will be permanently removed from your iPhone and you will be able to activate it with your own Apple ID.

      The Unlocking time is between 7 to 15 business days, with an average time of 10 business days.

      You can proceed with the iCloud Lock removal service order from the following link.

    Hey i found an iphone 6s at the park and when i turned it on it said ” this iphone is lost” is there anything i can do to unlock it at this point?

      Hi, Elli!
      The iPhone is iCloud Locked and it is almost impossible to hack the iCloud Activation Lock!
      I’m saying that because tools that promise to bypass the iCloud Activation Lock Screen are 99,9% useless!
      Anyway, he only way to activate your iPhone 6s is to find the original owner.
      Is there a message with original owner’s contact information also on the screen?
      If the answer is Yes then contact him/her!
      If the answer is no, you will need an iCloud Contact Info service.
      You will need only
      1. The iPhone’s IMEI number (You can find the IMEI number of your iCloud Locked iPhone by tapping the “i” button on the top right corner of the iCloud Activation Lock Screen.
      2. The UDID number
      Here is how you can find an iPhone’s UDID number!

      You will get all the original owner’s contact info and in case he/she is not responding you can also send a formal iCloud Lock removal request to Apple!
      They will either remove the iCloud Lock or arrange a meeting with the original owner!
      It is wise to first check the iPhone with aIMEI Check Service
      In this way, you will also know if the iPhone is also simlocked, blacklisted or has any other secret issue!
      Read this article about easy iCloud Unlock for more info!
      I hope, I’ve helped!
      Take care & come back to tell me how it went!
