Previously, we have heard about iPhone factory unlock solution from CutYourSim. It seems that the trend has taken a rebirth yet again. There are sites like iRepairIndia and Apple N Berry offering factory unlock solution to any of your iPhone locked to AT&T. This includes every phone which has been released till now such as iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or any older model.
Unlike Gevey Ultra S or Turbo sim which is a temporary way to unlock your iPhone using the sim interposer, factory unlock is permanent solution. Either today or tomorrow, Apple would release an iPhone firmware which would increment the BaseBand. Thereby, losing support for the sim interposers available in the market. But once you have opt for factory unlock, it’s a lifetime remedy.
You don’t need to worry about anything. The process is seamless. All it requires is your IMEI no. and name of the operator to which your iPhone is locked with. As soon as these details are submitted to the sites offering factory unlock, you would receive a message in iTunes saying “Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked” after connecting your iPhone to Mac/PC and a working internet connection.
For the same, you have to pay a premium price, depending upon one iPhone model to another. It doesn’t require any JailBreak or modification in iOS. Apple N Berry asks for 1-2 business days for the completion of factory unlock request. Whereas, iRepair India takes 3 hours – 48 hours for the service. The former charges $150 and latter $85. Now, it all depends on whomsoever you trust more.
