Unlock your iPhone forever: unlock by IMEI


The most repeated question in our contact form is «How I can unlock my iPhone [operator x] with iOS X and baseband XX.XX.XX? ”, most are looking for an answer related to the jailbreak; A few years ago iPhones could be jailbroken and used with any operator, almost two years ago we have not had any such release.

As a result of this the unlocks by IMEI, which are actually the best than the software release although in exchange you have to pay a price (except if you have finished your contract of permanence). An IMEI unlocking is the unlocking that occurs directly from the operator, which is permanent and forever, you can update your iOS, your baseband, etc. and you don't need jailbreak, it works on all iPhones. In other terminals this would be the equivalent of unlocking by code, in the iPhone it is carried out using iTunes.

Advantages: it is forever, it does not depend on the jailbreak, it allows you to travel abroad and buy a prepaid SIM and have a data connection, and above all, it revalues ​​the value of your terminal, a free iPhone sells much better in the second-hand market than a locked iPhone for a company.

Ways to unlock your iPhone by IMEI:

If your term contract with the operator you can call your company And that they release the terminal that you have bought yourself (paying about € 6 on average), it does not work if your iPhone has had another owner before or you are not a client of that company.

If your contract is still valid, or you iPhone is bought second hand or comes from another country you can buy the release in an online store. The problem used to be the price, which was around € 100, lately stores are appearing that do it for very small prices, for example, liberaiphoneimei.com releases iPhones from Movistar Spain for only €8 and iPhones AT&T USA for € 17 ($ 23) Even the iPhone 5, the truth is that it is the best price I have seen on the internet, but there are many other stores, if you know of a cheaper one, send it to me by email and we will put it in the post. Some releases like those of Vodafone or Orange Spain They still cost around € 150, let's hope they lower the price soon, because for € 8 it is definitely worth it, but for more than € 100 not.

If you have doubts we can make a process tutorial, I have recently unlocked my iPhone by this method and I have the screenshots ready.

    Me, 2 months ago I completed a stay with Vodafone and released the iPhone by imei with them and they charged me € 6 but… it doesn't work. I put cards from other companies and they won't work for me. Do you have to do something in particular?

    1.    gnzl said

      You must enter a SIM from another company and connect it to iTunes, in a few days I will upload a tutorial so you can see the different options.

    I think it would be very interesting to publish this tutorial, I have moved to Portugal for work and I can not unlock my iPhone 3GS in any way.
    Thank you very much

      ok, in a few days you have it, stay tuned

  3.   David C. Ruiz said

    How strange! It was totally FREE for me !!, I called 1004 (Movistar), and after a few days, they released it themselves, confirmed. The only downside is having to connect the new MicroSim to iTunes to be able to use it (only 1 time per operator). Now I use Vodafone ...

    1.    gnzl said

      Indeed, if you have completed your stay, they release it to you

      1.    GlaucoForever said

        Gonzalo, first of all, congratulations on your work, I wanted to comment that Orange charges only 5 euros for the release even if you are with permanence

        1.    gnzl said

          No longer glaucous, I have confirmed it today with them, now you must pay your penalty if you have permanence.

        Hello friend I have a problem I live in Colombia and I have an iPhone 4 that they gave me as a gift, I worked with Gevey but I updated it and lost the phone function I stayed with bb 04.12 finding out I came to the conclusion that it was from Spain apparently Movistar and I paid the imei release and it turned out that it was not from movistar if not from orange I lost my money, then I paid another release with a hp from a page that I found on twitter and I was scammed I never found my money or my service.
        Now I read these post and they say that they can release them without paying in orange but apparently there to call and do errands, as I said before I live in Colombia and I do not have any information about the original buyer of the iPhone the question is how could you help me if only I have the information that I can get from the team, I don't have invoices, I don't have any of those things. thank you very much and I hope your answer

        1.    Sends said

          Unfortunately only with the information of the terminal is useless I have been informing myself because I am from Orange and bought my second hand phone 2 years ago. They tell me from Orange's technical service that without having the phone number of the person who bought the mobile from that company, they cannot unlock it because it is associated with another customer. So basically garlic and water. = (

      I also released my iPhone 4 for orange and they told me from 24h to 72h I would have it and so it was connect a different card in iTunes and go! I did it on 2 iPhones 4 and with permanence. What's more, they told me that the price was € 5 that they never charged me !! Now I am considering it with my iphone 5 if it sneaks!
      Greetings and good morning for the web, it's great !!

        Hello Paco,
        I am interested in unlocking an iPhone 4. It is from Orange, they informed me wrongly, and after paying the fine of permanence and doing a portability to Movistar, Orange tells me that it does not release it, that I am no longer in that company. From what I read in your writing it would be possible to achieve it. Could you explain it to me in more detail?
        Thank you very much

  4.   Ruben said

    I have asked Orange for the release by IMEI and they told me that in a matter of 72 hours I could connect my iPhone 4 to iTunes for its release. It's been 13 days and there is still no way to release him. Orange tells me that they are pending Apple. (I have to say that I have already done this with 2 iPhones previously and everything was perfect)

    I went to the Apple Store today and they tell me that it does not depend on them and that they do not release. So I feel like I have no idea what to do. I am considering taking it to a store of these mobile release ... 🙁

  8.   pi3 said

    In theory it's easy, but companies scramble like rabid cats before releasing the iPhone. I spent almost a month and a half to get Vodafone to release it for me. I only got it after sending this email:

    On March 1, I requested the release of my iPhone 4 at the end of the stay. They told me that March 22 at 7 pm would be effective. On the 22nd they told me that there was a problem and that another request had to be made. Today, March 23, they tell me that we have to start from scratch and that it will be effective ON APRIL 13 !!!!! A month and a half to free a mobile !!!!! I am outraged with the treatment of clients. I demand that the cell phone be released immediately.

    If I don't get to be cool I would still be waiting. They are unpresentable.

  9.   George said

    I don't know ... I didn't have any of those problems that you tell me about, what's more, I was surprised by how fast and easy everything was.

    I called the Movistar SAT, and I told them that I wanted to release my iPhone because I had already completed the stay (2 days ago). The call did not last for about 5 minutes:

    -Which phone are you going to release?
    -An iPhone 4
    -I need the IMEI number
    -Yes, I have it here
    -Tell me please
    -Very good, then keep waiting please
    (he puts music on me for not much more than a minute)
    -Well, I inform you that Apple has accepted the release. All you have to do now is put a SIM from another carrier and connect the phone to iTunes.
    -Very good, thank you very much. Blah blah blah ... (to say goodbye)

    As soon as I hung up the call, I did what he told me, iTunes stayed a moment connecting with the server and… Done! A message appeared saying that the phone had been successfully unlocked (and that was because I tested it)

    For those of you who ask for a screenshot, it is neither more nor less than the one put by GNZL from iTunes informing that the phone has been released. By the way, they haven't charged me anything.

    Take heart and I hope you are lucky. Greetings to all.

      Well, they have deceived you, there is no code, it is only to put the imei in a database.

  16.   altergeek said

    The million dollar question, they can't revoke the unlocking, right? They charge me, release and re-lock

    1.    gnzl said

      No, that is impossible, the release is forever, but in the event that you cancel the paypal payment I think they can block the terminal.

  17.   waxipei said

    For iPhone 4S, can baseband 2.00.12 also be unlocked by IMEI? I did a release process with one of these cheap companies, and in addition to 150 euros, because it was from vodafone, in the end they had to return it to me because it was not valid for that baseband.

    1.    gnzl said

      Works for all basebands

  19.   Soitony said

    As you say in your post: the release by IMEI has to pay a price (except if you have finished a permanence contract), because you are wrong even when you have finished your permanence contract if you want to be released you also have to pay € 8 with Vodafone ... YOU KNOW.

  24.   krlosweb said

    Well, I'm with vodafone that they do nothing but dizzy, they told me that in 48 hours, after 48 hours they confirm it by sms, I call and they tell me that another 48 hours and the same is the text that confirms it and I pass it on itunes and nothing. I don't know anymore .. tomorrow I'll call them again ..
    Or to see if it is me who does not do well the process of liberation by iTunes, although according to I have read by Internet it is super simple.
    If you upload your tutorial Gonzalo will thank you to see if I do something wrong 😉

    One question, if I bring an IPhone 5 from the US with a company for example AT&T, can I release it the next day by this method? Do you mean that I buy an iPhone for $ 200 instead of paying almost € 800 as it is released? Thanks

    Muchachosm the question has nothing to do with it but maybe someone can help me. I brought the iPhone from China (it is original before they ask ahahaha) but what happens is that it is still «quasi configured» for China. The problem I have is that when I search for something on the internet from the iphone search engine (window on the left of everything), or with SIRI, or from the google box in safari; I look for it in google.cn. Does anyone know how to do (without jailbreak) to pass it to google.com?

  28.   Iker said

    I have never understood where the unlocking businesses get the codes ... but curiously they coincide with the countries where it is relatively easy to unblock the terminal from the company itself ... We are going to "steal" the operators of the unlocking system itself.
    Coincidentally, in Mexico, the telephone companies are not obliged to release your mobile even if the time of permanence has passed ... and this makes the release cost € 150 (although I do not know anyone who has said that there is damage and that the release).
    The people who sell the release system do not know how they do it for the sacrifice of the company ... And that in Mexico it does not happen with the corruption of many of the systems ... I do not understand

  31.   Zancuscu said

    Well, I am in the process of claims with Orange Spain.

    I have an Iphone 4 that was replaced by Apple's technical service and when the contract of permanence with Orange expired, I called the release service, I told them that my mobile was not the one I had from the beginning, I provided them with the IMEI they made a check on the system and they said it didn't show up. The agent who attended me told me that sometimes Apple gives free replacement terminals and to try to insert another card and try to call, I inserted the Movistar one and everything worked perfectly and the agent told me that this terminal was free.
    I believed it and switched to Simyo, I put the card in and it told me that it was invalid or not from a compatible operator. After calling Simyo, Orange and Apple it turns out that the mobile is not free. That it is only free for the three companies (Movistar, Orange and Vodafone).
    I have complained to Orange, they have not paid attention to my Faxes and by calling they tell me that they cannot do anything because I am not registered with them and they do not guarantee that if I return they will release it to me.
    I have gone through the OCU, and have contacted Apple and Orange. Orange does not pay attention and the executive department of Apple has called me. They told me that they supply the "semi-free" terminals to the providers and it is they who have to end up linking only to them with a final step. And it is only they who can do it. I have told them that this has meant that there has been a human error and that I am left without a mobile phone to not give me the replaced one as Orange gave it to me. They say that it is a matter that Orange has not done well the procedure of releasing a replacement terminal. Apple tried to contact Orange and has not replied so I'm still the same. The OCU can no longer do anything else and now I have complained through the Consumer Arbitration Board of the Madrid community to see what they can do.

    Aps, by the way, after calling Apple, interestingly, I updated the firmware version and now it won't let me call on Movistar anymore. Curious no?

    Anyway, I've been without Iphone 6 for 4 months and this is going to be long.

    I comment on this here in case someone is in the same situation what happens to me.

    Good because MOVISTAR in Venezuela always say that you cannot Unlock IMEI or it is that they do not agree that we can be a user of another operator ...

    1.    Saul said

      Hi Jaén. The same thing happened to me with an iPhone 3G long ago. Call Apple and they will send you an email explaining the change of terminal due to breakdown and with that email you send it to your operator. It worked for me.

    Hello, I will tell you about my experience, and just so that you do not throw money away and can use your free equipment in any company ...

    I am a user of an Iphone 4S bought in prepaid mode with movistar ... at its time cheaper than Telcel (like 1000 pesos) and also cheaper than in the Apple Store Mexico itself. I made the request for release by IMEI directly with Movistar Mexico, because simply the Law already requires it ... (DOF NOM 184 on telecommunications) in number 4.2.2 it clearly says that they are obliged to release your equipment once you meet certain requirements : example: if I have contracted in the POspago plan, I can request the release once the ENTIRE forced term has concluded AND HAVE NO DEBT on the equipment, and in the prepaid mode, no special requirement, just request it ... the way they recommend is that you mark at * 611 there they find a series of options, and among them comes the one to release your equipment, it asks you for some information (time you have with the line, last time you put a balance, etc.), and it asks you to type the IMEI numbers, IT DIDN'T WORK FOR ME IN THIS WAY, since he answered that IT DIDN'T EXIST IN THE SYSTEM THAT NUMBER AND THAT I HAD TO GO TO AN ATTENTION CENTER ... which in the end I did not do, I had already solved some problems on Twitter. enta @MiMovistarMX and there they continued to assist me ... they asked me for the IMEI and equipment ... it took exactly a week to free my equipment and in the end I received the notification that it was ready, that it only synchronized and the matter was fixed ... I made a backup copy, synchronized my team. I turned it off, and changed the chip, I put a Telcel and WITHOUT PROBLEMS ... I CONNECTED without problems, I made a call, I navigated in 3G and everything worked well. I turned it off again and repositioned my original movistar SIM, and the service was working again ... that is, finally, my computer if I was released ...

    The Regulations apply to ALL OPERATORS in Mexico: Iusacell, MOvistar, Telcel, Unefon…. So those who still have doubts, check NOM 184, read it, and communicate to your cell phone companies asking (demanding) that your equipment be released .. !!!

  115.   ROAD said

    Operators must release mobile phones once
    end of stay commitment. The CMT recalled a few days ago its opinion on this issue, and Microsiervos commented
    In the past week. The forceful statement of the first saying that
    “No regulation, law or resolution obliges companies to release a
    mobile phone once the period of permanence has expired ”is a
    half true. It is true that no legal norm goes into detail
    of the above, nor do I know at least that there has been a resolution
    judicial or administrative obligation to do so (if someone has
    raised directly), but that is one thing and another
    legal framework does not allow arguing that after the term of stay
    not only must the terminal be released but this must be done without
    any cost.

    The hiring of the communications service
    electronic (voice, data or others) and the acquisition of the terminal, when
    is made to the same operator, or they are part of the same contract or
    well they are linked contracts. Locking a terminal is a
    limitation to its use, a decrease in functionalities with respect to the
    established in origin by the manufacturer. As a limit, you must
    necessarily be stated in the contract, either in the conditions
    general, particular or specific offer, in accordance with art. 60 of the LGDCU, art. 7 of the LCGC, and more specifically according to art. 38bis of the LGTel
    (read section 1.f). In practice, the operators do not mention it, or
    in the best of cases they limit themselves to saying whether the phone is free or
    no, without indicating what that consists of, in short, what
    Specific restrictions have been imposed. That omission would empower
    require a phone with all the functionalities, regardless of the

    The subsidized price of the terminal, the lock and
    the obligation to stay for a period of time with the corresponding
    Penalty clause in case of breach of the foregoing are reciprocal. This is,
    the customer pays a lower than market price (or nothing) for a
    telephone, in exchange for staying in the contract you lasted a minimum period
    of time (the maximum is 24 months) and with the limitation of power
    use it only with a specific operator. The operator must
    amortize or offset the cost of the terminal and protect itself in the event of
    advance resolution, and it does so doubly, on the one hand with the
    penalty and on the other with blocking, which also discourages
    migration to competition since liberation entails other costs. In
    principle, since the user can choose to accept the above or
    acquire the terminal at its real cost, the conditions are admissible,
    although considering the specific case it should not be ruled out that this
    excessive protection would be considered abusive by a court, and
    In fact, there are sentences that have weighed the penalty, lowering it
    (Provincial Court of Barcelona of November 8, 2007, Rec.
    296 / 2007).

    The early termination of the contract by the
    user, unless justified (breach of obligations
    operator, unilateral modification of the conditions, including
    rates,…) would entail the application of the penal clause. Nevertheless,
    If it is carried out after the period of stay, it should be understood that
    the operator has already compensated the terminal costs, and that
    reciprocity of conditions implies that the user must be able to
    enjoy it freely and the operator give you the means to do so, without
    added cost. Maintain that limitation, or make it subject to the payment of a
    economic consideration for the release (or disguised as "costs
    management ”, as is usually done) would be abusive in the first place (articles 87 and 89 of the LGDCU),
    and for another improper since in no contract have I seen that
    specify the cost involved in releasing the terminal or the
    means to carry it out.

    I don't know about you, but I'm going to Consumption.

    Gnzl: you said that you would post the tutorial, could you pass me the link ?.
    Today I called Orange to ask for the unlock code for my iPhone 4 and they say that since my terminal no longer belongs to Orange for more than 90 days, they no longer have their unlock code, is this correct? The terminal belonged to a company account and we still have a contract with orange even though this line is missing. That means that our account is not terminated. Does anyone know what happens or what can I do? I have been referred to a closer orange store! In other words: they have gotten rid of the problem and have referred it to someone else. What I do?!!
