I'm so happy! It is always a risk, buying an iphone on vacation. But I took the risk. When I came back from vacation, it was found that there was a simlock on iphone. I immediately made ​​the request on Saturday. And today (Wednesday) I received an email that the unlocked iPhone was released. I tested the same and it works!! Thank you!

I paid the amount on Saturday evening. I got the feed back as unlock will be done in 24-72 hours. So I thought it will complete by end of Wednesday since Sunday is weekend. But It got completed on Monday. I was surprised with that mail. And it is 100% perfect. It is of bit cost but it is affordable for this fast service.

I was at a loss to know how to unlock my disabled daughter's iphone 4S following a serious lack of help from the network carriers involved. An online search discovered this company. From reading other people's reviews & experiences this is the unlocking service provider that gave me the most confidence as a potential customer, so I took the leap & paid the deposit. I received confirmation & updates via email on a regular basis throughout the transaction, which reassured me about the professionalism of this company. The iphone was unlocked easily within less than a week, when received an explanatory email with instructions on what to do & also what to do if those actions didn't work first time. My iphone unlocked immediately over the air, I didn't even need to hook it up to itunes. I would definitely recommend this service based on my own experience. It was fast, professional & very easy to follow. it's not cheap, mine cost £99.99 overall to unlock, but I suspect that Apple & the original networks are responsible for the lion's share of this.

Having bought an iPhone 4 off eBay 2 years ago, and assuming it was unlocked as I travel frequently and have used sims all over the world without problems, so I updated my ios. Unfortunately for me, it was not unlocked, just jailbroken with ios 5.1.1. I was very upset as I could not get my phone past the activation stage. As I could not reach the eBay seller, I decided to do some research and see if I could unlock my phone. These guys found out the network for me, and I preceded to a preorder. All in all, it took £100 (half of what I had paid for the phone itself). Reading the reviews I was a bit hesitant of being scammed or blacklisted, or even stolen from (one of verification process involves taking a photo with you and your card, which I had to do as the transaction had not shown up on my account yet), but thankfully it worked. It took them 23 hours to unlock my phone after my payment had been validated, and all I had to do was a restore on my handset and now it's working! Thanks guys, you're awesome. (4 stars for cost)

You guys are the best. It has been a year trying to unlock my iPhone 4S until I came across your website. I was scared to do the unlock but when I managed to read some of the reviews and I was assured you were the best. Fellow apple users, feel at home when unlocking your devices with these guys, they are simply the best. I got my unlock within 2days even though it was blacklisted ....I salute you the Unlock team, please keep it up. I Will not stop recommending people to your website

Posted the request to unlock my iphone 5c and received a quote within 48 hours which to be honest I wasn't quite expecting and so immediately thought was this must be a scam. Pressed ahead anyway and accepted the quote and within 24 hours my phone was unlocked without any issues as planned. All I had to do was insert the new SIM and I was up and running. Even though the actual cost to unlock was more that I thought it will save me a fortune in the long term by avoiding expensive roaming charges. All in all great service and highly recommended.

Purchased iPhone outright from Orange not realising it would be locked to that network. When we wanted to switch to another network two years later we requested they have phone unlocked and we agreed to pay charge. For over a month they promised it was in hand and would be unlocked then said they wouldn't unlock it after all. Went to, paid fee and it was unlocked within hours with no problems and no messing around or need for further contact. Can't praise this company highly enough and thoroughly recommend anyone to use them. Excellent 5*!!!

I was locked to Orange and had heard it was really difficult escaping from them. I had also tried (and failed) twice to get Orange to actually unlock it themselves.

Went to iphone unlock as they had previously unlocked an iPhone 3gs from o2. The unlock was delivered in a very timely manner and was no trouble whatsoever

I will be using them again for another unlock as the contract ends.

... and cheaper than other unlocking services and it's a truly factory unlocking service : My iPhone carries on updating apps i bought via iTunes and to the newest OS.
At the beginning I was hesitant to pay for the unlock service, but i took the risk and the company proved to be 100% realiable.
Its website has a useful page with tutorial videos (depending on iPhone model) how to connect to iTunes to finish the unlocking process.
I've recommended Official Phone Unlock to friends and family ... and of course I will use this service again in the future.

I was wary about parting with my hard earned money to unlock an iphone 4s locked to orange UK , but all went well and the phone was "Fully" unlocked within the time period quoted , I have since updated the phone via Itunes with NO problems at all and has functioned perfectly.
Again "Thank You".

The unlock was nowhere near the announced timeline, in spite of it being "accepted", guaranteed to be unlocked and announced within 3 - 5 working days.
Nevertheless, the phone got unlocked (after series of mails) and the end result good.

I bought an iphone 4c which was locked to Orange and wanted it on Voda, after much Internet searching I ended up using these guys to unlock the phone. Its costly to unlock an Orange phone, this is the network rather than the unlocker so I decided to proceed. It took over a week and the only frustrating issue is the lack of info during this period, I did start to think it was a con but an email confirming the unlock was complete and following the simple step proved that it was worth the wait.

I've never really trusted anything that has to do with online transaction cos of fraud rate in the society not until when I came across this site. Initially I was scared, but decided to give it a trial cos of the ratings from other customers. I must confess, I've never regretted ever transacting with them. Trust me, this guys are good and reliable.

My iPhone 4S was unlocked from Orange UK so I could use it with Orange in Spain. Mine was one of the ones that took a little while at the back end of last year, but like everyone else, had faith and they came good. If I ever had cause to buy another locked iPhone, I would use again

Utilice esta página para desbloquear mi iPhone 4 bloqueado con Orange France, luego de mudarme en Inglaterra. Ni siquiera con una sim Card de Orange UK servía, increíble!

Finalmente contacte a Orange quien me pidió mínimo una semana para desbloquearlo y nadie en Londres me ofrecía desbloquearlo por el precio que ofrecía esta página web. Lo hice por aquí y en menos de dos días tenía mi iPhone desbloqueado y funcionando perfectamente!

Servicio impecable y rápido !

At first, I was worry to unlocked my iPhone with the officialiphoneunlock. Because I am Thailand and the company is in UK and I tried to unlock with Thai company many time....but it's not work... This company made it in one day!!! Now I can use any Thai sim or change many new number and any update iTune to my iPhone. Its cheaper and safe more than you take you iPhone to the phone shop and let's they add any programs in your iPhone and it lock again after your update iTune.
Let's do it. And you will happy to play your iPhone.

Having made the mistake of buying an iphone locked on to orange uk, I tried lots of places in an attempt to get it unlocked. Most places said that they could not do it and the ones that could told me that it may take up to two weeks. Your company unlocked the phone in two days.

It is a bit expensive but definitely cheaper than taking it to a dodgy shop where they would take up to 2 weeks to unlock it .

Having been an Orange Contract subscriber for several years I have now finally managed to get my Iphone unlocked from Orange. I now live in Belarus and while my Iphone was under monthly contract I could happily roam to Belarus (albeit with high roaming charges) When I decided to move permanently to Belarus I decided to cancel my monthly contract and go onto Orange PAYG to maintain my UK Orange number. I immediately encountered a problem in that Orange PAYG does not roam to Belarus. I therefore got a local sim for Belarus. Problem my iphone was locked to Orange and although I have been an Orange customer for several years my change to PAYG so far as they were concerned classed as a new contract and before they would unlock my iphone orange required 3 months active service on PYG - difficult when not in the UK and no roaming. I was in a catch 22 situation. Now thanks to officialiphoneunlock my iphone has been unlocked and I am now able to use my iphone with my local sim. I will soon be repeating the process with my wife's iPhone which has the same problem.

Getting my iPhone 4 locked to Orange UK unlocked has been a nightmare, I have tried for almost a year in a number of mobile shops. Official iPhone unlock were finally able to do this so I am very grateful. It did take a long time with them though about 6 weeks, I just wish they had been more communicative and warned me that this may happen. But overall I am very satisfied, they got the job done and were approachable via Facebook with constant updates. replied:

When you ordered the service was offline - however when the unlock was actually available (not on status pre-order) we delivered your unlock within 3 days.

Hope that clarifies the long wait :)

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

Factory iPhone MEI Unlock for iPhones locked to Orange 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 Orange 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 Orange UK-approved IMEI unlock, your warranty remains intact and your iPhone simply becomes a factory unlocked unit.

Prices starting at £89.99

How to unlock iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5C, 5S locked to Orange 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 Orange UK.

Step 2: The unlock price and timeframe will be displayed for an unlock for an iPhone locked to Orange 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 Orange 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 Orange 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.
