    iPhone Sim Free Statement It has been brought to our attention mainly through this article [the article you are reading now] that there was a small bug in our code. This bug has now been resolved we will be forwarding the new simfree.app to all our currently registered resellers. All new resellers will automatically receive the updated version. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Jesus Diaz for discovering this bug and reporting it through his site. As well as apologize to the select few who encountered this problem.
    The bug has been confirmed to be related to whether or not the SIM card is pin locked or not, it has now been resolved. AND OUR SOLUTION IS UNIVERSAL.

    Further to this, we will be updating our simple tutorial, to include the following:

    IMPORTANT !

    PLEASE ENSURE YOUR PHONE IS FULLY CHARGED AND YOUR "Auto-Lock" SETTING (in Settings/General) is set to NEVER for the duration of the unlock process. You may change it back once the application is finished

    lol, the software will definitely unlock your iphone, but it stops at the final step which will enable your iphone to work with any SIM. Unless you send your IMEI to seller so they can charge your credit car, otherwise, the unlock will never be sucessful
