If you have an iPhone 5, 5C, or 5S, the IMEI will be printed on the back of the iPhone itself.

A truly flawless experience, phone was locked to 3UK, my iPhone 4s is now unlocked and working perfectly on Vodafone Ireland and updated to IOS7 without a problem. I paid £49.99 for this service, but to be honest it's worth every penny, hassle free and they respond within 24hrs with letting you know your iphone is officially unlocked. I highly recommend Top Drawer!

Comprei um iphone que meu tio trouxe da Inglaterra, operadora TREE, fiquei quase dois anos sem poder utilizar meu iphone, graças a este serviço pude desbloquealo e agora utilizo direto, atualizo todas as funções que meu iphone 4 proporciona.
Eu não só recomendo como, se preciso for irei utiliza-lo novamente para outros aparelhos!
Funciona mesmo, o atendimento é super rápido!

Vale cada centavo!

I found this website easy to use and phone was unlocked the next day and weekend as well secure and easy highly recommended would use paypal next time to pay as it would have been much simpler than using credit card as security checks slowed things down but on the hole very pleased with them

Reading other reviews I was expecting a super speedy service and I got that but 10 x faster! I thought I would have to wait at least 2days but phone was unlocked and working on another network within a matter of hours! I would recommend using these guys 100%

I have used them several times and the service is good. Even if it delays the response comes eventually. I recommend anyone looking for a genuine unlock service to use this service.

My son gave me his iphone 4S which was locked to Three in the UK, but I was going back to live in Canada, so I needed it open to use a Telus SIM.
I started a Google search, and came to the top of the search list. Their web site was impressive and eye catching.
I checked the details of the company and how the UNLOCK would be done, it seemed quite easy, and the price reasonable, so I put my order in on Saturday morning and the phone was all unlocked and good to go on Monday.. (they state that weekends are excluded).
I would recommend their service!

My phone was locked to the 3 network but I soon discovered that the network coverage in my area was very poor/non-existent. I wanted to have the phone unlocked so that I could use the Vodafone SIM card from my previous phone. After a minor snag (because my MacBook didn't support iTunes 11 and my phone was running iOS7) which was resolved with the help of the support team, everything worked smoothly. I was very pleased with the service and would use it again should the need arise.

Can fault the service of this company. They did exactly what they said they would do, kept me updated all the way through the process. and unlocked my phone as promised.

Don't bother searching for a comparison, this is the company you need to use!!

With the latest iOS 7, unlocks are received directly to the phone itself Over-The-Air (over either WiFi or 3G) - there's no need to Connect to iTunes :)

Bought an iPhone 4S locked to Orange, was only a month old or so. Despite Orange policy on unlocking phones, these guys did it without any issues...fantastic service! Highly recommended. Now running on 3 UK network. Don't go anywhere else for an official unlock until you have tried these guys first!! :o)

The process for me took close to thirteen working days so its not particularly fast, this was an Iphone unlock from three UK and I'm led to believe that this is often the case when unlocking a three handset. Once the email arrived the phone was connected to iTunes and all is now good! I would have appreciated being kept informed about the delay but no such communication took place but otherwise I'm very pleased. replied:

Our timeframe has increased dramatically since you wrote your review, in fact Three UK unlocks within 4 hours now guaranteed.

Permanent IMEI unlock for Three UK iPhones (3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5C, 5S)

Factory iPhone MEI Unlock for iPhones locked to Three UK. Unlock your iPhone with a factory IMEI unlock and make your iPhone sim-free. Supports all baseband and firmwares including the latest iOS 7 and beyond.

Your iPhone is permanently unlocked and will remain so on updates with iTunes as it is an official unlock.

Get your iPhone locked to Three UK working on your network of choice.

Our service is performed from the comfort of your own home. NO jailbreak hacking of your iPhone is required. Using our Three UK-approved IMEI unlock, your warranty remains intact and your iPhone simply becomes a factory unlocked unit.

Prices starting at £29.99

How to unlock iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5C, 5S locked to Three UK

Step 1: Simply enter your IMEI on the Buy Now page - using our direct connection to Apple we will tell you instantly what carrier your handset is locked to and whether it is locked to Three UK.

Step 2: The unlock price and timeframe will be displayed for an unlock for an iPhone locked to Three UK and you simply enter your email address (for the unlock notification when done) and enter your credit/debit card details.

Step 3: Once we have marked your iPhone as unlocked from Three UK we will send you an email, containing easy to use instructions on how to carry out the unlock - it's literally as simple as plugging your iPhone into your computer and iTunes will display a message telling you that your iPhone is now unlocked (see below). Alternatively, if you already have service on your iPhone locked to Three UK or have access to a WiFi network, the unlock will be applied automatically Over The Air.

How we are different from the crowd

  • INSTANT carrier checking - never buy the wrong unlock again - other sites make you wait hours if not days if you choose to check your carrier first, and also will refuse to refund if you choose the wrong network when purchasing an unlock. However with just your IMEI we give you everything you need - guaranteeing you are purchasing the correct product. We take the guessing out of unlocking.
  • The fastest unlock delivery (check the reviews!)
  • Telephone support which is actually answered rather than a recorded message going nowhere. Remember we aren't robots though and don't work 24/7 - please call us during UK working hours Monday to Friday.
  • Status of your unlock is updated hourly, from submission right through to unlocking.
