How To Unlock iPhone With Sam - Complete Guide To Permanently Unlock Any iPhone

How To Unlock iPhone Using Sam - Unlock Works As Confirmed By MuscleNerd
This article will help you unlock your iPhone 3G, 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S by using Sam and following simple steps to trick iTunes to believe that your iPhone is factory unlocked which would activate your iPhone. All you need is a jailbroken iPhone that can be activated in iTunes using Sam, a computer with the latest version of Tunes installed and working internet connection.

IMP: You need to know on which carrier your iPhone is currently locked to.

Steps To Unlock An iPhone:

Step 1: Jailbreak your iPhone to install Sam bundle that is the key to successful unlock. You can follow the various guides to Jailbreak your iPhone:

iOS 5.1 Update
iPhone 3GS Jailbreak
iOS 5.1 Jailbreak
iPhone 4S Jailbreak
Fix Stuck At Boot Logo
Fix Stuck In Recovery Mode

Step 2: Install Sam Bingner's SAM (Subscriber Artificial Module) package. To install Sam:
  • Launch Cydia
  • Go To Manage Tab
  • Sources
  • Edit and Add the following repo
  • Cydia will update the sources
Once Sources are updated, go to search and type 'Sam' and install it.

Step * : Note : Some carriers operating more than one Carrier ID you may need to select "SIM ID"; easy to tell since iTunes will not activate if the wrong IMSI is selected.. Follow Step * only if you were unable to active through itunes.

Step 8: Connect your iPhone to your computer and allow iTunes to re-activate your iPhone, double click "Phone Number" parameter at the main device screen and make sure that the ICCID matches that of your SIM card. If not you need to start over from Step 1.

Step 9 : Unplug your phone, close iTunes.

Step 10:  Disable SAM using the enabled switch

Step 11:  Connect your phone to iTunes again, you should get an error saying that your phone cannot be activated. This is normal. Just close iTunes and open it again.

Step 12: You should see signal bars in a short time


Step 13: Push notifications may stop working after this procedure but can be easily restored with "clear push" utility in SAM followed by connecting to iTunes.

Your phone will work normally with your SIM card and that SIM card ONLY since we have tricked iTunes to think that ICCID is one of the intended carrier's. The phone can be rebooted and connected to iTunes freely without losing the "unlock", at least for 3 years as confirmed by Musclenerd.

Since it does not involve emergency numbers or IMSI spoofing it will not have any of the issues associated with SIM interposers. Tested working on iOS 5.01 but should work with tethered 5.1 too.

Is Jailbreaking Legal ?

SAM Unlock method no longer works. It has been patched by Apple. If you haven't already unlocked your iPhone following this method, you can no longer unlock.

However, those who have unlocked their iPhone following this method, can follow the unlock restore method posted here :
