The Straight Talk provider is probably the hardest to unlock, and this is evident from the hundreds of users who publish dissatisfied messages on the internet.
Fortunately, there are two ways to unlock your Straight Talk iPhone:
- The first is through the company itself
- and the second with the so-called Hardware Network Unlock SIM card method.
Of course, first we suggest unlocking your Straight Talk iPhone with the FREE method, so let’s explain how you can do it.
#1 – How to Unlock Straight Talk iPhone through carrier request
In general, all network providers have specific and unique unlocking policies, but the most common ones are:
- The iPhone should not be stolen or lost
- There must be no account balance (Unpaid Bills)
- It must be activated in their service for at least one year
The truth is that in the case of a Straight Talk iPhone these limitations are not very important especially when you want to unlock an iPhone through them (But you should check it anyway to see its current Blacklist status – It will help you to identify if an iPhone can operate inside USA or has other limitations).
All you have to do is go to their website, type in the IMEI number of your iPhone and they will inform you if this iPhone is eligible for unlocking or not.
If they decide to reject the unlock request, they will not let you know the reasons that led to the failure of unlocking your iPhone. They’ll just show you a text about their unlocking policies explaining that the network unlock request was not accepted (Your device is not eligible).
#1.1 – Requesting a Network StraightTalk Unlock (FREE)
The steps are very simple:
- Go to their website to request an unlock
- Scroll down to the Serial Number field and write the IMEI number of your iPhone
- Prove to them that “you are not a robot” (Captcha) and click on the “VERIFY ELIGIBILITY” button
In just a few seconds, you will know if your iPhone will be unlocked free of charge from Straight Talk.
Fortunately, the whole process is free of charge, so you have nothing to lose.
#2 – How to Unlock Straight Talk iPhone through Hardware Network Unlock SIM Card
This method we will analyze has received many negative criticisms for many different reasons.
Unfortunately, there are many hardware unlock methods and most of them have not achieved the desired results, which is unlocking a Straight Talk iPhone.
To date, there are 7 Hardware unlocking methods, the most known being RSIM, XSIM and TURBOSIM. Most (including RSIM, XSIM and TURBOSIM) were unable to unlock iPhones that were locked into MVNO providers such as Straight Talk, Sprint, Cellular, Wireless and other companies.
# 2.1 List of all Hardware SIM cards for StraightTalk Unlock
RSIM, GPP SIM, Turbo SIM, Heicard, XSIM, Gevey and UnlockMySIM are all available hardware unlocking options.
We tested them all on the following MVNO networks and on three GSM providers (AT&T, T-Mobile and EE).
|Hardware SIM||Straight Talk||Sprint||Tracfone||GSM Carriers||Price|
Table 1: Testing Hardware Network Unlock SIM Cards with Straight Talk, Sprint, Tracfone, AT&T, T-Mobile and EE UK networks.
After communicating with DoctorSIM (The company that provides the UnlockMySIM solution), we managed to reduce the price only for our users to $27.95.
Conclusion on How to Unlock Straight Talk iPhone
All cards, except UnlockMySIM, failed to unlock our Straight Talk iPhone.
So, all of the above networks can get unlocked with the UnlockMySIM card.
