I would recommend; theofficialunlocks.com

The one i used from start and they are reliable and trustworthy. They are offering At&t iPhone 6 unlock in 3 days time.

You will find many other websites recommendation on this forum but as i never tried myself so can't say anything about them.

Thanks for the replys. The phone is fully payed, but under two year contract. Do i need to buy premium(expensive) service?

I heard about some unlocks on ebay for AT&T iphone 6 models for as cheap as $4.
Not sure how reliable they are. My uncle got his 6 Plus unlocked the other day with an ebay seller.

----------

does using one of these services void applecare?
No.
Its just whitelisted on the carriers side.
It has nothing to do with altering the hardware or software of your phone.

Not a consensus but my own experience with Theofficialunlocks. They did my ATT 6+ in 3 days, 5s verizon in 4 days and my Verizon Xperia z3v in 5 days. If you have multiple phones to unlock email them for a discount.

I recently get unlocked my friend iPhone 6+ bought last month / under contract in less than 2 days. If you order more than one phone then they will give you discount price; Theofficialunlocks.

All Verizon iPhones are unlocked. They charge $30 to unlock Verizon iPhones, which means they're charging 30 bucks to do absolutely NOTHING. What a bunch of crooks.

No you are wrong. Not all the Verizon iPhone's are unlocked for international use.
The new 6 / 6 Plus come default unlocked but few of the old models were locked against international use.
I tried myself the other carrier card in few Verizon iPhone 4s / 5S and they were asking for compatible sim card which is designed to run on Verizon carrier. I still have the IMEI's no of phones which are still locked on Verizon and asking for only compatible network sim card.

Lmao:D
You paid to unlock a Verizon 5S?
And they say there's no such thing as free lunch.
I would have charged you $20 and unlocked it faster:)

No, that's simply not true. All Verizon LTE phones are unlocked. It's a requirement the FCC put on them when they purchased the LTE spectrum.

Besides, they're selling unlocks for Verizon iPhone 6 for some less-informed fool to purchase. As I said, they're a bunch of crooks.

All of the unlock companies are extremely shady, but these guys might take the cake.

If the Verizon phone is asking for compatible sim card then what does it mean and how to successfully activate and unlock the device?
Actually i have few phones locked to Verizon and giving compatible sim card error.

You must have the the only verizon LTE iphone in the world that doesn't work with any GSM sim in the world then.
All verizon iphones starting with the iphone 5 and higher are fully GSM unlocked out of the box.
The verizon 4S and below are not unlocked.
So not sure what you're blabbing but what you're claiming is false.

No luck.

Unfortunately, your unlock request was denied because:

You haven’t fulfilled your service contract.
Is your phone actually fully paid off? If it is then they should unlock it, I'd try calling AT&T if it isn't working...

I am second owner. I ask the seller is it fully payed, and she tell me that yes, fully payed. Maybe its not then :D

I need to try contact at&t by email. I live in Europe, so calling is quite expensive and my English is not so good :)
