    Hi People,

    I have a iPhone 6 which is locked to Softbank Japan. I am unable to go past the activation screen for the phone as I don't have a Softbank sim.

    I have seen on the webpages websites like jailbreakwizz.com offering unlocks for iPhone 4. Can my iPhone be unlocked at all ? Please help.

    My understanding is that Softbank is the Sprint (2014 and earlier) of Japan when it comes to unlocking.

    Softbank has to unlock it and again, my understanding is that they will refuse to do so.

    You're sol.
    There is no software unlock hacks available for your phone.
    Last one available was for the jb iPhone 4 over 5 years ago.
    Sell it as is and get one you can actually use.

    I spent 5 years living in Japan and having softbank. You're out of luck. They will not unlock it, ever.

    Not if they are like Sprint used to be. Anything anyone offers will be a scam.

    Sprint kept the iPhone out of Apple's unlock database for years and Softbank it appears is the same.

    Is there any way I can go past the iPhone activation screen for iPhone 6 ?

    I am thinking if I can go past the activation screen them I can use a turbo sim.

    Only way to get passed the activation screen is by using a softbank sim card.
