    I believe the only way you can get it unlocked is by paying off the remaining balance on the phone.

    The other option is to just buy an unlocked iPhone 5s (full price/not subsidized).

    I'd call tmobile and ask them what the requirements are, and try to meet them. :).

    Simple. Pay off the balance of the phone. Then submit the unlock request. Will probably take a few days.

    In that case you should've have just waited to buy an unlocked iPhone, now you are paying triple the price. :(

    Too bad, however, Apple is not selling them.

    They wont let me pay off balance when I ordered , that's why .
    IDK why they didnt tell me I have to payoff , they just told me I have to use this phone in service for 40 days . S"cks customer service :apple:

    apple is selling unlocked phones, they're not advertising. see the various threads.

    short story:

    a] full price AT&T: go home restore and then unlocked
    b] Verizon ip5S factory SIM unlocked
    c] full price tmobile phone from an APPLE RETAIL STORE: unlocked.
