iPhone 5 Unlock Available For $50 - Apple N Berry Starts Selling iPhone 5 Unlock

iPhone 5 Unlock Available For $50 - Apple N Berry Starts Selling iPhone 5 Unlock


iPhone 5 Unlock

Apple has finally unleashed the iPhone 5 which is been the most awaited device of all. The device is already selling like hot cakes thanks to the 4" display and the redesigned physical appearance of the device that has been the reason for many new buyers to opt for iPhone 5. With more and more carriers offering the shiny apple device on contract allowing users to get their hands on the new smartphone. Although most of the iPhone users that are entangled in the carrier contracts are fine with the tenure, there are certain who wish to use the iPhone 5 on their existing numbers and wouldn't want to switch to other carriers.

That is where unlock comes into existence. Since iPhones bought on contract are locked on the carrier on which they have been bought on, users have to unlock it in order to user it on other networks. AT&T has started unlocking the device if you pay the entire contract amount or if you have completed the 2yr contract period without having any bad remark in the payment history. Users have to ultimately rely on 3rd party unlock providers that sometimes work.
  • For iPhone 3G and 3GS the iPhone Dev-Team has released an unlock called ultrasn0w however the dev team was unable to unlock the successor of iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 which was impossible to unlock if the baseband gets upgraded past 2.10 
  • To save iPhone 4 users, a sim interposer called Gevey appeared in the market that allowed iPhone 4 users to unlock their devices following certain set of instructions and by dialing an emergency number that unlocked the iPhone. This method of unlocking was however patched with iOS 5.1.1 but it still works on the condition that you install a custom firmware that does not upgrade your baseband. 
  • Similarly to unlock iPhone 4S, the very same sim interposer with advanced functionality appeared. Gevey sim ultra that allowed iPhone 4S users to unlock their shiny apple device to be able to use it on any carrier they like.
iPhone 5 unlock ? Apple n Berry the very trader who started selling gevey sim interposers have mentioned on the website that they are providing iPhone 5 IMEI unlock for $50 with money back guarantee. However, the unlock for iPhone 5 is limited to AT&T users only. So if you are an AT&T iPhone 5 user who wants to unlock the device to use on other carriers, head over to the Apple N Berry website for the unlock. If you are wondering if this is another scam website, you should check the positive reviews that the website has received with over 80 delighted customers thanking the provider for the unlock.

AT&T To Unlock Contract iPhones From 8th Of April

Starting This Sunday, AT&T Will Unlock Contract iPhones

AT&T has made an official announcement that the wireless giant will unlock those iPhones which have completed the 2yr contract period. Starting from 8th April, this Sunday, AT&T customers who have been using the service contract for over 2 years can get their iPhones to the nearest AT&T help center to get the iPhones unlocked. Previously, customers who finished the terms of their two-year contract with AT&T had an iPhone that could not be unlocked through official avenues. That meant even though they were free to leave for another carrier, they could not bring their iPhone with them.

AT&T iPhone4S unlock

The following is the statement issued by AT&T
Beginning Sunday, April 8, we will offer qualifying customers the ability to unlock their AT&T iPhones. The only requirements are that a customer’s account must be in good standing, their device cannot be associated with a current and active term commitment on an AT&T customer account, and they need to have fulfilled their contract term, upgraded under one of our upgrade policies or paid an early termination fee.

Last month there was an incident due to which CEO Tim Cook advised AT&T to unlock an angry customer's iPhone 3GS because he was moving outside The United States. So, basically in response to the complaints from angry customers, AT&T decided to take a step ahead and unlock the iPhones of those customers who have completed the course of their contract, or, paid to have the contract terminated, or, upgraded to a new device, and are up-to-date with payments, then the company will willingly unlock your iPhone so that it can be used with any other carrier.

AT&T Contract iPhone unlock

This is obviously good news for any AT&T iPhone owners.

The iPhone 4S can also be purchased unlocked and contract-free direct from Apple. It is available priced at $649 for the 16-gigabyte model, $749 for 32 gigabytes, and $849 for 64 gigabytes.

Apple CEO Tim Cook Asks AT&T To Unlock Angry Customer's iPhone 3GS

Tim Cook Asked AT&T To Unlock An Angry Customer's iPhone 3GS

Apple has its unique ways of making the customers loyal to them. Its not always the products that they make but the service they are willing to provide going beyond the possible known limits just to make a customer happy.

Earlier there were such incidents with Steve Jobs. For instance, A man returned his used iPad with a label which said - "Wife Says No" . This incident went upto the higher managemnet level and was finally brought to Steve Job. Steve jobs, sent a box to the same man with a brand new iPad 2 in it and with a label which said - "Apple Says Yes"  

A similar incident happened with the current CEO Tim Cook. A reader from 9to5 Mac shares his story.

The reader was moved to Canada and wanted to use his iPhone 3GS which was on AT&T although the contract period was over. He wanted to use Canada's pay as you plan service. So when he contacted AT&T to unlock his iPhone 3GS saying that only Apple could do so. When the reader contacted Apple, he was advised to contact AT&T as only they have the access to unlock the iPhone. When he came back to AT&T the response he got from them was to go ahead and jailbreak the iPhone. Angry and frustrated with the response from AT&T, he decided to send an email to the CEO, Tim Cook.

Let's have a look at the email:

Hi Tim,
My family is immersed in the Apple brand. All 4 of my children (aged 2 to 8) have been using iPod touches, iPhones, iPads, and iMacs since they were a year old. Our television is a 27” iMac using eyeTV. My kids talk to their grandmother every second day via video Skype on the iMac. All of our computers are Macs (we have 4 in the house). Apple has touched every aspect of our lives and made it richer!
My company recently moved me to Canada for a work assignment for a few years. My wife’s iPhone 3GS had finished its contract with AT&T so I bought her an iPhone 4 the day we moved to Canada. I took her iPhone 3GS and I contacted AT&T to see if I could have it unlocked so that I could use the phone with a Canadian carrier with a “pay as you go” plan for casual use (I’m forced to use a Blackberry for work, but I hate it so I’d like to use the iPhone for phone calls). This is where my problems began.
Basically AT&T told me that they couldn’t unlock it, only Apple could. I called Apple (but was routed through Apple Canada) and they told me “ask to talk to a supervisor at AT&T because the customer service rep won’t know the process, but AT&T definitely can unlock it”. So I called them back and the supervisor was adamant that they couldn’t help me. “Just jailbreak your phone” was their advice.
I didn’t want to jailbreak my phone, I like Apple’s curated experience and I don’t want to stray from that. However after several more calls to both AT&T and Apple, I made no progress. So I’m turning to you for a final plea.
I love Apple and will continue to buy your products regardless of what happens with this situation. However, I did pay $600 some odd dollars for this device (even though I bought it on contact and they say its subsidized, I’m basically paying for the device in my monthly payments) and I’d like to be able to use it.

My thanks to the Apple team, keep innovating!

The reader never received any response to the above email from Cook but he did receive a response from AT&T informing him that they received an email from Cook requesting to unlock the iPhone9to5Mac confirmed the emails are authentic. After confirming the IMEI’s for the device, an AT&T representative told the reader that AT&T made an exception to unlock his iPhone. The reader was given instructions to connect his iPhone to iTunes to complete the unlock.
Apple CEO Tim Cook requested AT&T to unlock iPhone 3gs for angry cistomer

The reader claims that after his phone got unlocked, he received a call from Tim Cook's assistant to make sure AT&T completed his request:

Mid day my wife sent me an e-mail at work saying "Um, Tim Cook's special assistant                                                                                                just called and she wants to know if AT&T has unlocked your phone yet??? Why does Tim Cook care about your phone?"
Good to see that Tim Cook is continuing what Steve Jobs used to do.
