Can You Unlock iPhones for Free?
Yes, you can. If you are eligible for the terms and conditions of your carrier provider, then you can get your iPhone unlocked for free. However, these criteria are strict in most cases. And you need to wait for several days for unlocking.
For now, you can also get the iPhone unlocked easily and quickly using the professional tool WooTechy iSalvor. It has developed a new function for unlocking SIM.
How to Unlock iPhone for Free
The most important thing about unlocking iPhone free is to meet the eligibility requirements of your network provider. If your device is eligible, then you can directly ask your carrier to unlock your device. The representative will ask you for some information, such as the store where you purchased the device, its serial number, and the iPhone’s IMEI number. Moreover, many carriers require you to fill out an online form using all this information to unlock your device.
As you may realize, the IMEI number of your iPhone is very important in this process. For an iOS device, it is very easy to find it with the following two methods:
Type and dial *#06#. You will automatically see a 10-to-15-digit code that you need to write down. This is your device’s IMEI number that you will be asked to submit.
You can also find the IMEI number on your iPhone’s settings. Go to Settings > General > About and locate the string of numbers at the bottom of the screen.
After you get the network unlocking code from your carrier, you can change your iPhone’s SIM.

For this method, you simply need to provide the service with your iPhone’s IMEI number. You can obtain it by following the methods we have already explained above. However, bear in mind that this method will take several days to finish the task and the compatibility of this service is not satisfying.
Buy Network Unlocking Chips
The last way to get rid of the “SIM Not Supported” and “SIM Not Valid” messages when trying to insert a new SIM card is to get an unlocking chip, which is a very thin chip that can be placed around your SIM card. To complete this method, you will need to purchase the actual unlocking chip from an online store.
