All UK operators will unlock there phones for around £20 or even for free once your contract has ended (Apart from Vodafone?). O2 unlock at any time. Not sure about the others.

Safer then shoving £4 of Chinese metal into your £500 phone.

But this is good for those who are stuck in a contract and want to move, if it works.

I can confirm for a fact that:

T-Mobile (£15)
O2 (no charge if currently or previously on Pay Monthly or borrow a friend's SIM)
Orange (£20)
Three (£15)

Will unlock your iPhone. Vodafone is the only one I don't know about because most people I know who are on Vodafone don't feel the need to unlock their phone from the network.

I won't vote but the instructions for these are quite hilarious. Quite a random sequence of processes involving calling 112 (international emergency services) then hanging up, which I might add is illegal, wait for this wait for that then you may get to use it, you may even get to have a device that is stuck in your iphone for good.

Some may have some success but for those that I have come across haven't and now are crying that their expensive purchases are belly up due to a cheap attempt to unlock their phones.

Here are some instructions that I have found

PROCEDURE:

STEP 1: Turn off your iPhone 4 and insert your SIM card and SIM together with the metal SIM tray provided.

STEP 2: Turn on your iPhone 4 and wait for the SIM welcome menu to show and the select “accept”.

STEP 3: At the beginning a “no service” message will show on your iPhone 4. DON’T do anything and wait until you see one signal bar appear on the top left corner.

STEP 4: After you see the signal bar dial “112″ and hang up within 2 seconds.

STEP 5: Turn on “Airplane Mood” and then turn off right away. Your iPhone 4 will show “SIM failure” and then “No SIM Card Installed”

STEP 6: Until the “No Sim Card Installed” message shows up turn on the “Airplane Mood” again and turn it off right away again. The “Sim failure” message will show and the signal will show up after a few seconds.

NOTE:

After all the steps above, if there is still no signal then power off your iPhone 4 and turn back on and repeat all the steps from beginning.

To use 3G network you need to turn on “Data Roaming”.

It has some legal status problems so if you can wait then WE recommend you to wait as iPhone Dev team will soon release 40-bit NCK Hack for iPhone 4

I bought an Iphone 4 dedicated battery extender from these guys which arrived in days and didn't work - they have done nothing in response to my comments. Avoid.

I think that getting it in days is a result! I have only had one problem with DX & it was resolved slowly, but without hassle.

Awesome bit of kit, I have unlocked/JB my iP4 as well as the Mrs and my Nephews with no issues.
Just cos' it's made and sold in the PRC doesn't mean it's crap.

HOT from me.
Keep up the good work DX.

I remember using "turbosim" sim holders to do unlock nokia phones like this back in the day.

The Op said 'unlock without jailbreaking'. Dealxtreme says 'unlock without jailbreaking'

Thank you both for stating that unlocking isn't jailbreaking....not that anyone asked! :p

O2 will unlock your iPhone for free
#14
Used to have one of these in my first iPhone, (also bought from DealExtreme) to unlock it so that I could use a different sim. Worked well but was a bit tight to get back out of the sim tray. Fine if you are not swapping sims like I did (though this looks like a better design as inc. tray) Then an apple OS upgrade stopped it from working.

If this works, it is a good solution for somebody who doesn't want to go down the firmware / jail breaking solution. Can't see it affecting the warranty either if your phone goes wrong. Simply pop the sim unlocker out.

Not all the carriers happy to unlock either. I couldn't get an O2 iPhone unlocked as I was the second user - My details never matched theirs so they wouldn't unlock it. Voting hot.

worth a try as long as your happy to take the risk of bricking your phone

These do work but the biggest problem is trapping the SIM card tray in the phone or breaking the pins on the SIM reader (which is attached to the mainboard) - personally having done this once before and getting the tray trapped resulting in having to take the screen off the phone, I would never risk it again on a phone worth this much money.

Ironically, this also works fine with other manufacturers' phones but they are less arrogant and didn't make such stupid design decisions.

ok, stupid questions, whats so great about unlocking an iphone.
if i'm in a contract, why would i need to break it..
am i not going to keep on paying the monthly rental..
#24
orsum i luv it alot
#25
Orange want £20 once your contact is expired. , or youve had the phone registed with them for 4 months. No exceptions, as they claim that they are charged for the service and are simply passing on costs (or at least thats what they told me).

P :)
#26
I have one of these and have unlocked my iPhone 4 on the latest firmware for a Tesco Mobile/O2 SIM. It does NOT require Jailbreaking. These are the pluses.

Negatives

Although unlocked, 3G or data does not now work although wifi is obviously no problem.
The process, although simple, has to be repeated if the phone is switched off.
It does not work on T-Mobile (might just be in my case).
Involved ringing and emergency number for 2 seconds (cant be good for the Emergency Services).


I paid £7 for mine and others have paid around £100. This is not an ideal unlock and I would prefer the £20 to the network to give e legal unlock.

Google "Gevey SIM" or look for the numerous YouTube videos.

I agree. iPhones are manufactured in China by a company called Foxxcon (SP).

O2 will unlock your iPhone for free

What does this statement mean?

If you are in an o2 contract will they unlock it for free within the first month?

If you are on an orange contract and call o2 will they unlock it for free?

If on a contract it can be unlocked for free at any time. If on PAYG you can have it unlocked for £15 but do lose the free bolt on they gave you for the first year.

"Can I 'unlock' my iPhone and use it on another network?Pay Monthly customers

Yes. If you're a Pay Monthly customer, then you can unlock your iPhone at anytime for free. This doesn’t affect your contract though – you’ll still need to see out the rest of it.

To unlock your phone, just fill out this unlocking form and we’ll do the rest.

Once we’ve got your form, it’ll then take up to 14 days for us to get it unlocked for you. Once it’s unlocked, we’ll text you to let you know. You can then put a non-O2 Sim into the iPhone and connect it to iTunes. iTunes will then tell you the phone is unlocked.
Pay & Go customers

Yes, you can unlock your iPhone. You’ll need to pay a £15 one off fee and we’ll take this from the credit on your phone.

If you’re unlocking your phone less than 12 months after you bought it, we’ll take off the free Web & Wi-Fi Bolt On (that we added for the first 12 months). If you want to keep the Bolt On (it costs £10 a month), just choose the option when you’re filling out the unlocking form. Find out more about the Web & Wi-Fi Bolt on here

Once we’ve got your form, it’ll then take up to 14 days for us to get it unlocked for you. Once it’s unlocked, we’ll text you to let you know. You can then put a non-O2 Sim into the iPhone and connect it to iTunes. iTunes will then tell you the phone is unlocked.
Business customers

Yes. If you're the main account holder, you can ask your individual users to complete the unlocking form and we'll unlock the iPhone free of charge. This doesn’t affect your contract though – you’ll still need to see out the rest of it.

Once we’ve got your form, it’ll then take up to 14 days for us to get it unlocked for you. Once it’s unlocked, we’ll text you to let you know. You can then put a non-O2 Sim into the iPhone and connect it to iTunes. iTunes will then tell you the phone is unlocked. "

If you are on Orange you need to contact Orange for unlocking. Im not sure what they will say.

Oh yeah because this £4 piece of metal is going to have the quality control of an apple made item... I was alluding to the fact there is a high chance once this is inserted your not getting it back out again. Which has already been confirmed by one user.

ILLEGAL

These DO work, BUT everyone PLEASE NOTE THESE HAVE BEEN FOUND ILLEGAL IN THE US AND CANADA SO I THINK THEY WOULD PROBABLY BE ILLEGAL IN THE UK, AS YOU HAVE TO RING 112 NUMBER.

But as i have said before, Apple have heavy quality control standards. This?? It's no doubt made by the lowest bidder for with no care for what is being made. You will be lucky if you ever get it back out of your phone again.

As I said earlier. I have one. I can confirm they are NOT cheap metal and very very similar to the original Apple SIM tray.
