    Hi All, new member to macrumors.com. Been following it as a guest for a long time. :)

    I'm trying to unlock my ATT iPhone 5 as I'm traveling on vacation outside the US. Requested ATT for help but they asked me to go to hell, so can't do it the right way.

    Using google I was able to find that there used to some 3rd party services (like unlock_fusion on ebay, swiftunlocks.com, unlockfusion.net) which have a very good reputation of helping people to unlock iPhone 5 for a reasonable price. But I'm not able to find them anymore. There are no listings by unlock_fusion on ebay anymore and swiftunlocks.com doesn't seem to have any products for ATT iPhone 5.

    Does anyone have any other ideas to unlock iPhone 5 sometime soon, I'm traveling in 3 days.

    Thank you very much!

    I just ordered an unlock from Sam however I don't have a t mobile SIM card. I do however have a sprint sim. Can I use that one instead? I'm trying to go to tmobile with my recently purchased iphone 5.

    Once the phone is unlocked you can use any gsm sim.
    Once you switch to Tmobile and get a sim all you need to do is stick it in.

    Yeh you should be able to get it unlocked at any flea market around there are lots of electronic guys there and cost would be $40-$100

    no way trusting idevice guys for unlocks

    I wouldn't recommend using idevice unlocks.. I'm still waiting on them to even answer my e-mails and nothing... i ordered the unlock the beginning on October......
