    I kmow I have a thread dealing with a locked iphone, but could not find it, it has gotten buried in more recent posts.

    Well the seller recently agreed to refund me for an unlock code for my locked iphone 6s, right now it has an att sim and is locked and contracted to att.

    I want to unlock it and use it contract free with t-mobile.

    I was told that swift lock was a good one, I am looking for a good least expensive one that will unlock this phone.

    or is there a way I can do it for free? I tried connecting it in iTunes, but that did not unlock it.

    The best way to unlock is through ATT assuming the phone is out of contract. However, you will need to seller to contact ATT on your behalf. You can get an unlock from SWIFT Unlocks but it is not cheap.

    Considering the current state of third party unlockers and their relationships to the carriers, is it wise to seek a third party unlock when you can simply ask AT&T to unlock your phone?

    I mean, three fired employees who installed malware on AT&T's system so the guy running Swiftunlocks could access the system at any time, a lawsuit for damages based on how many unlocks were illegally granted and the relocking of phones for those who used Swiftunlocks (and other services) is more than enough to keep me far away from these third party unlockers.

    eBay. You'll have to pony up $30-$40 to unlock a 6s that is still financed through ATT but if you find a seller with a good reputation, you should be fine.

    Do not confuse the in-contract unlock with the out of contract unlock services.

    dont know if I mentioned already, but the iphone is still on contract with att, I tried to request an unlock code from them, and they refused saying the phone is in contract.

    maybe I should just sell this phone off, it does not look like I will be able to unlock it properly.

    I am now reading more negative things about 3rd party nlockers, that they mess up the iphone software, and then one cannot do ios updates without the phone getting relocked.

    I got a 6s Plus last week, I requested an unlock code from AT&T for my 6, I unlocked my 6 this evening.

    You can buy another phone or convince them you have another one and they may give you an unlock. Maybe not.
