Are the IMEI unlocks from eBay, Applenberry working like they did for the 4 and 4S?
I can confirm the eBay unlocks work on the AT&T iPhone 5. I entered my request yesterday and got confirmation today. I popped in a trimmed tmobile sim and it works.
Which eBay seller did you use?
I've seen advertisements, but not sure if any works
i wish there was one available for Rogers in canada.. i might need it next year
Yes, I can. I did this yesterday. It was $16.88, and a few hours later, I received an email, I restored and I got the "Congratulations, your iPhone is unlocked" screen. I can say, this worked, 100%. Unlocked iPhone 5.
Here's the link for the one I used...
Yes, I got my i5 unlocked too.
I used unlock_fusion on eBay.
I wanted to make sure , because a friend is purchasing one from here ( the states) and want to use it overseas on a GSM network, I told him just buy an At&T and unlock it
You never know when Apple will relock the phones on you in the future. I would recommend get a verizon iphone 5 which is unlocked.
Edit: On second thought get the phone that has a native LTE band and if it ends up being the AT&T version then use ebay unlocks and pray apple does not mess around with iphone 5 that are not factory unlock since they have not even started selling factory unlocked.
I just have a question before I do this... why does this work? How come this guy has the "power" to do this? Seems so awesome but almost too good to be true...
I can't answer that, because I don't know. All I know is, it worked for me.
Worked for me today
And I bought it through unlockfusion on eBay. Took less than 2 hours, and I just restored and got the "Congratulations! Your iPhone is unlocked" message. Sweet!
15 bucks well spent, IMO.
I guess they must have friends who have access to the AT&T computers
Smart guy with a hack or inside knowledge.
As said, who knows if the carrier pushes a LOCK back to your phone at some point.
Never happened before, doubt it will now.
May consider trying one of these eBay auctions this time one I actually get my iPhone 5. I hate waiting
I purchased the Gevey IMEI unlock on Friday afternoon ... order status says complete but I've tried connecting the phone to iTunes, did the backup, and then did the restore, and I haven't gotten a congratulations your phone is unlocked message yet.
Actually, this happened to a bunch of people this week, including me. My iPhone was relocked (originally unlocked by unlock_fusion). It took a couple of days to get it unlocked again.
What was the process of getting it unlocked again?
While the system updated probably.
Where you using a Tmobile sim and then it stopped working? How did you know it locked again?
Got two iPhone 5 for AT&T unlocked and another iPhone 4 replacement whom AT&T wouldnt unlock so I went ahead used unlock_fusion.
Works ace, can confirm that T-mobile works on iPhone 5 (had to size it down to the nano sim), also Straight talk aswell.
got 2 iphone 5's unlocked but not from ebay
restored this morning and got the congrats message
I can confirm beyond doubt. Not only I got the 'Congra....' message, but I actually made a call with T-Mobile SIM (used one spare free t-mo sim, cut it to nano size).
It was unlocked properly late last week. Out of curiosity, I ran the number through the IMEI checker sites early this week, and they suddenly changed to locked. Then I read a bunch of other people here experienced the same thing (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1398957). Stupidly, I restored the phone, and of course, didn't get the Congrats message, indicating that the phone was need relocked. It took a couple days of emailing unlock_fusion to get it unlocked again.
Kind of paranoid about it now, as it doesn't seem to be exactly permanent.
Oh, so that was for a 4S?
I know it doesnt happen all the time and usually once its unlocked its good for life.
Something to do with AT&T updating their system or similar. I hear you, it does suck having to worry about it.
My iphone 5 seems to be unlocked still knock on wood
