    Hi guys, I purchased an iPhone 5 used from Amazon for my sons birthday and I cannot figure out a way to get it unlocked. I previously unlocked my own iPhone 5 online without problem and now it seems to be very difficult.

    Is there a quick way to do it? His birthday is on Wednesday and I am running out of time.

    If anyone knows of a website or service that does it quickly, please let me know.

    Thank you so much!

    AT&T will unlock for free if the iPhone 5 is no longer under contract. Otherwise you'll have to pay for a 3rd party unlock (upwards of ~$100 or more). And it takes a while.

    He bought the iphone 5 used from amazon.
    His 5S contract has nothing to do with that other iphone 5.

    I did not reply to OP, but a different user meaning if he upgrade his 5 to the 5s.
