    Default iPhone 4S Unlocking (Locked to 3 UK)
    Hey hi guys,

    I hope u can help me out. My cousin sent me a iPhone 4S 5.0.1 (IMEI - 013058003003897) which is locked to 3 UK. If i enter my local SIM here from India it says activation required. If i enter a 3 UK SIM it works perfectly fine. How can i get my SIM working & pass this activation? Turbo SIM & GEVEY SIM didnt work. On my phone when i try to activate it using my SIM but it says tht i need a supported carrier SIM & the same message is displayed on iTunes as well. When i checked the UK phone unlocking tracker (I work for 3 Global Services Australia) it showed me some kinda charge for unlocking so is tht what's blocking me from using my phone??? Using absinthe makes no sense as it clearly gives me an error saying tht i need to unlock the phone first before jailbreaking. Can someone please help me out???

    You should be able to get 3UK to unlock it for you for a small charge.

    You would have to call or email them to see what they charge. I know other carriers in the UK charge 15 pounds to unlock an iPhone. Not sure about 3 though.

    Looks like you would normally dial 333 on the 3UK phone to get to customer service and request it there. Not sure how that would work if you are not in the UK though. There are other sites out there that can provide the same IMEI unlock but they are more expensive than 3UK themselves would be.

    3 will unlock the phone if you got it on contract with them, if the imei or serial doesn't match the one on your account they wont do it. Altho i think if you get a pay and go sim, put it in the 4s, phone 333 and request an unlock i think they might, thats what im gonna try. Btw the charge 15.32

    If its not your phone tied to your contract with 3 they wont do it. I suggest you get a 3 pay and go sim put it in the phone and phone 333 and ask for the phone to be unlocked
