Generally, these days, phones that can be moved from system to system are GSM phones. Phones that are sold by Sprint and Verizon are not GSM - or they are not GSM on their hom…e systems. The iPhone uses GSM. The system that Sprint uses is NOT GSM, so a GSM only phone like the iPhone won't work on Sprint, period, end of story. Sprint will sell you an "International Phone" that will work as a Sprint phone in the US and will switch to GSM when you are in an area that Sprint is not in and GSM is in. Like Europe, for example. In some countries, all cell phones use the same system. When cell phones were first introduced in the US many years ago, that was true here. There were two systems, and you paid full price for a cell phone and you could transfer it from system to system. Eventually that changed; phones were locked into systems, and incompatible systems were introduced. But then much of the rest of the world standardized on GSM and AT&T changed from the analog/digital system they were using here to the GSM system. In the US, national carriers that use GSM are AT&T and T-Mobile.
Yes the iPhone 4 currently is being sold on Verizon and AT&T currently but should be expected to be on Sprint shortly. Sadly though only the iPhone 4 runs on CDMA networks as …well as GSM. If you are thinking you can unlock an iPhone for Sprint or Verizon that's under the fourth generation like the 1g, 2g, 3g and 3gs, it wont work.
Sprint doesn't use SIM cards...
Ultimately yes, but currently no. This is because it was anounced today tht in china, a china mobile carrier unlocked iphone 4 for their network...google it for the actual sto…ry that made headlines
No because even if it is unlocked sprint works on a CDMA and AT&T works on a gsm signal it's like trying to use AM on FM radio only
Yes, but keep in mind that unlocking your iPhone is illegal and can get you in a lot of trouble.
A person living in the UK received a Sprint iPhone and wants to know if it can be unlocked in the UK?
The iPhone 5c is 640 x 1136 pixels. That is about 326 pixels per square inch (ppi).
You have to call T-Mobile and have them unlock the phone for you. IMEI numbers are important in phones and if something happens to it they need to make sure your informati…on is secured.
To unlock the iphone you need to visit the store you brought it for and ask for their assistance in the manner.
A guy unlocked my iPhone 4S from Sprint and he said that if I update the ios then I wont be able to use my phone. It's currently on ios 6.1.3. I know most things about iPh…ones except for unlocking and having to do with carriers.
If you own the phone and have forgotten the lock, you'll have to take it to your phone retailer with proof that you own the phone (for example a printed copy of your phone bil…l). If you do not own the phone legally, you have to hand it in to the nearest iPhone/Apple retailer or the local police. Attempting to access a phone you do not own is a criminal offence. And believe it or not, "finders keepers" is actually a myth. The law states you must put in considerable effort to make sure the lost item find its way back into the hands of the owner. It's also possible that the phone has a tracking device on it, as many smartphones do nowadays, either through paid contract services or through a downloaded app. If it's yours and you forgot the code, take it to the retailer with proof you own it. If it's not yours, take it to the retailer or the police (or risk being traced and arrested for handling stolen/missing goods). Take it to the retailer, a local iphone shop, with proof of ownership.
