There’s been quite the controversy about unlocking mobile phones in the US lately. It is now illegal for people to unlock their mobile phones through third-party companies, but only if the phone was purchased after January 26th, 2013. For those of you who bought your iPhone before the DMCA ruling went into effect last month, unlocking your idevice is still perfectly legal and super affordable…
One of the go-to companies for people looking to unlock their iPhones is New York-based LiberateMyi. The company has unlocked iPhones from a number of different carriers, allowing customers to use their devices on various networks. What makes companies like LiberateMyi so special are the prices that unlocks are being offered for. Purchasing an unlocked iPhone from Apple can cost you upwards of $600, while unlocking an AT&T iPhone with LiberateMyi will run you as little as $8…
Of course, prices on factory unlocks vary depending on the carrier your iPhone is locked to. However, the company does offer a carrier check for your iPhone, and supports dozens of different carriers around the world. Carriers of the following countries are supported:
You can also request a carrier that you don’t see listed on the site. The company promises to unlock your iPhone within the time frame given or guarantee your money back. Time frames differ depending on the carrier. AT&T iPhones take 1-24 hours to unlock while Verizon iPhones may take up to a week. LiberateMyi also offers expedited unlocks as well.
So how does the unlock work? Simply head over to LiberateMyi.com and select the carrier your iPhone is locked to. After purchasing your unlock and sending them your phone’s IMEI, you will receive an email confirming that your iPhone is now unlocked! Once completed, you will need to restore your iPhone with iTunes and that’s it! Your device will be permanently unlocked and free from your carrier’s grip! Here’s a video explaining the process:
I should also note that they have great customer service. You can contact them via Email: Support@Liberatemyi.com, iMessage: iMessage@Liberatemyi.com, Skype, Twitter, and of course through the phone. Check them out and let us know what you think!
