    Default GIVEAWAY - Unlocking the iPhone 5


    A few million people got an iPhone 5 this morning.

    We're betting some of you are looking to unlock it - whether for resale value down the road, or to use a foreign SIM in the iPhone already (good luck though - your carrier will need a compatible nano-SIM).

    There's an abundance of sites offering unlocks. Some are legit, some are scams. We have used various ones in the past, and thought we'd share a couple we recommend now since iPhone 5 support has just been added (note - these services unlock other iPhones as well - 3G, 3G[S], 4, 4S).

    Neither of these services require a jailbreak, and both are permanent unlocks (you can update your firmware normally, etc, and your device will still be unlocked).

    iUnloc.kr

    iUnloc.kr is a newer service, but from guys who've been developing for iPhone for a while now. This service is wholly automated, with an emailed response when you're unlocked. Plus their site is pretty.

    They offer a variety of service speeds and prices:

    • 2-5 hour turnaround. on sale for $45.
    • 1 hour turnaround - $55.
    • 24 hour turnaround - $25.


    iUnloc.kr will also be releasing a Cydia app here in the next few days, which you can grab through the ModMyi repo. We'll update here when that's available.

    NegriElectronics.com

    NegriElectronics has been around a long while, and has a reputation of quick customer service and quality products. They sell unlocked phones as a specialty, and their iPhone unlock is quick and effective. You also receive an email when your device is unlocked.

    The iPhone unlock service from NegriElectronics runs $120, but is on sale for $54.50. It is "instant," which is labeled as a 2-3 hour turnaround.

    You're in great hands with either of the above services - ModMyi.com recommends them (we should mention - we don't receive anything in exchange for these reviews, although we did test an unlock to verify it works with each service).

    We're also giving away 10 unlocks - 5 from iUnloc.kr, and 5 from NegriElectronics.com. Use the widget below to gain entries into the raffle, and we'll pick a winner Monday morning!

    No idea why they feel the need to lock your phone if they will unlock it at anytime...... *sigh*

    I never really trusted these unlocking methods. Maybe I should give it a try, though.

    um, did everyone miss the story about ATT unlocking phones free? I got my 4 unlocked by them just by filling out a form. I don't understand all these people charging a bunch to do it.

    You say iPhone 5 is supported, but I only see everything but iPhone 5 support on their site. Did I miss it somewhere?

    Verizon's phone reportedly comes unlocked. All you have to have is the corresponding nano SIM for the carrier, plug it in and go. Guess that's one of the bennys of paying for that wide coverage map.

    I'd probably still get this even if it wasn't free. Looks like a great deal.
