Lately we are receiving e-mails from our visitors, that want from us to explain them if it is possible to unlock an iPhone that was found.
The interesting part, is not their question, but the places that they found those iPhones (Behind a car wheel, inside a tree hall and inside their dog’s house!). Of course the main question is if someone can unlock an iPhone that he/she found (The place that was found does not matter for the unlocking procedure :D).
In order to unlock an iPhone which you know nothing about, you will need to learn a few things about it first. For starters you can try turning it ON and if you cannot do that, recharge it, and then try turning it ON again!
What information I need to know for the iPhone that I found?
It is important to understand if this iPhone has a hardware issue first, so you need to clean it up a bit, fully recharge it and then try to turn it ON. If you cannot turn it ON, most likely it is a hardware problem, so if you feel like spending a few bucks, you can go to a store and let them take a look at it.
If you manage to turn it ON, then check if you can make a phonecall. If you cannot, then check the SIM-Tray, and see if it is using a SIM-Card. If it does, then you can plug your own SIM-Card and try making a phonecall. If that fails too, then you will have to make a full iPhone IMEI Check to see exactly what is wrong with that iPhone!
Network, Blacklist, iCloud and Model Info are required to Unlock an iPhone
The full iPhone IMEI Check, will provide you all available information about this iPhone, and the most important ones are the SIM-Lock status, Network Identification, Blacklist status and iCloud status.
The above information will show you if your iPhone is Locked, to which mobile network it is locked, if it is reported as Lost or Stolen, if it has Unpaid Contract bills, if it is Under Contract or Under Warranty and its iCloud status (OFF, ON – CLEAN or ON -LOST).
Getting those information will give you an exact idea of the iPhone’s currect status and also a solution to make it usable again (If it requires it and if it is possible!).
Tip: The full iPhone IMEI Check only requires the iPhone’s IMEI number – Dial *#06# to get it!
How to Unlock the iPhone that I found?
Now that you know all those information about that iPhone you can order an Official IMEI Unlock, which will permanently unlock your iPhone.
This method is approved by Apple and all Mobile Networks, which makes it 100% legal and guaranteed. Also, once you unlock that iPhone with the Official IMEI method, it will stay permanently unlocked.
