Unlocking an iPhone

Hi, I bought an iPhone from a friend (the first iPhone that came out) which is locked to Telstra. She had it for a couple of years and I've had it for about 8 months.

I was using my Telstra SIM, however I've decided to switch providers, and go to Virgin.

Can I unlock the phone and use my Virgin SIM?

 

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

You should be able to, give 13 22 00 a call and say "unlocking" and they should be able to do it for you Smiley Happy

1800 IPHONE.

Follow the prompts.

Select the ones which direct you to a consultant (For users who already have an iPhone).

Ok sweet, thanks Smiley Happy

Can they do it in-store? (I work right near a Telstra store)

They would just end up calling for you AFAIK.
