      Hey Rodger,

      Even if your iPhone has pending contract bills, it can still be unlocked!

      The Official IMEI Method is able to unlock your iPhone, but you will have to choose the Premium Service for your network (It is for Blacklisted iPhones).

      Check the following link which is from an iPhone Unlocking Service that supports Blacklisted iPhones as well:
      iPhone Unlocking Services – Blacklisted iPhones supported

      Hey Kim,

      Hardware Unlocking Methods (Like R-Sim) support only specific iPhone models and specific iOS versions. If you upgrade your iPhone to the latest iOS version, not only you will lose the unlock, but you will also lose your Jailbreak. If you want to keep using the R-Sim, then do not upgrade your iPhone.

      The only way that allows you to use ANY iOS version you want and keep your iPhone unlocked, is the Official IMEI Method.

      If you are sure about the Network of your iPhone and its Blacklist Status (If it is reported as Lost or Stolen, or even if it has pending contract bills), then you can go ahead and order a Sprint USA Unlock from the following link.

      Link: Sprint USA iPhone Unlock – Make sure that you picked the right service. IF your iPhone is Blacklisted, you should choose the “Sprint USA Unlock BLACKLISTED” service.

      You can check if your iPhone is blacklisted or not from the following link: Full iPhone IMEI Check – Network and Blacklist Status

      This means that your iPhone is locked on Globe Philippines Network.

      In order to be able to open and use that iPhone without any issues, you will have to unlock it.

      Unfortunately, I do not know any iPhone Unlocking Companies that support Globe network, but when I discover one, I will immediately update you here, so you can unlock it!

    So, recently on New Years night I broke my phone which was a Nokia Lumia Windows phone through AT&T. Well my friend, who felt bad, gave me his old iPhone 4s, but it is through Sprint. I want to use the iPhone with AT&T, but I called Sprint and they told me the phone was not unlockable. I checked the IMEI, and it says the phone is clear of service and has not been blacklisted. I need it to be unlocked so that I can use it for my work to get hold of me, but I can’t afford to pay to have it done. What can I do?

    1. Zisis ( User Karma: 54996 ) says:


      Since this is an old iPhone model, there is a chance that after the unlock, it might not be able to operate with other GSM networks within USA.

      You can call Sprint USA and ask them if you unlock that iPhone, will it be able to operate with other USA networks?

      If you receive a positive reply, you can then Unlock your Sprint USA iPhone 4s.
