      Hello Suke.

      We do not offer iPhone Unlock services, we are a news blog about iPhones.

      However, I am not sure what exactly the problem is.

      Is it a Network Lock issue OR an iCloud Activation issue?

I bought it at best buy and I first went to straight talk but now I a switching to T mobile.

    I’m a bit confused about the process…: In checking the links above, one provides an e-Book, one claims to do it over WiFi, yet another appears to work behind the scenes for several days, after which it becomes unlocked…etc?

    Is there not simply a code provided, as it had been for years – – ? Thx

      Hey Paul.

      The Straight Talk USA network is not supported by an Unlock service anymore.

      This is why we updated this article with the latest ways of removing the STraight Talk USA Network Lock. Those are the only Legal ways/methods, since no service can remove it (And it is almost certain that no service will get online again).

      I suggest reading the following article too which is for Straight Talk USA ->

  4. Daniel Houck says:

    I have two IPhone6s that were originally sold by Movistar Chile and locked to their network. These phones have NEVER been activated, they are new in box. They were represented as factory unlocked but are not, when you try to activate you get “Unauthorized device. This IPhone cannot be activated for service. Contact your carrier or AppleCare.”

    I contacted AppleCare who checked the IMEI numbers and confirmed the phones are not blacklisted or stolen. Who can I contact to unlock these new phones? I do not have SIM cards for either but could use my wife’s SIM card as she has a 6s too. I am not real computer savvy so I need really good instructions.

    1. Jason ( User Karma: 54996 ) says:

      This is really weird, since Unauthorized device message, most of the times means that this is a WORLDWIDE BLACKLISTED device.

      Do you have Movistar Chile SIM-Cards to activate them with that network?
