How to activate an iPhone
If you are seeing the message above, you must activate your iPhone before Unlocking it

 

When factory unlocking an iPhone it is important that your iPhone has been activated. Before placing your order for unlocking your iPhone, please make sure your iPhone has been activated.  In other words, your iPhone has been initially set up and functional.

If your iPhone is brand new out of the box,  you need to activate it before unlocking it.  However, if it has been activated and in use for sometime, it will not be necessary to activate it.

You can follow these instructions on How to Activate my iPhone.

If you are ready to activate your iPhone, follow these simple steps:

1. Insert your activated Sim Card into your iPhone.
2. Turn your iPhone on by pressing and holding the On/Off button for a few seconds. Then follow the onscreen instructions to activate and set up your iPhone.

You also have the option to use iTunes to complete the activation. Connect iPhone to a USB 2.0 port on your Mac or PC using the included Dock Connector to USB Cable. iTunes will open automatically. Then follow the onscreen instructions in iTunes. In order to use iTunes, make sure your computer is connected to the Internet when activating your iPhone, either through a WiFi network or by direct connection to your Internet router or Ethernet network. If it’s not connected, you will not be able to activate successfully.Activation Requirements

Your iPhone is all you need for activation. It will guide you through the process and connect to either a Wi-Fi or cellular network to complete the activation. If you are using iTunes to activate your iPhone, you need an Internet connection for your computer and the current version of iTunes. You can download iTunes for free for Mac or PC. You also need to create an Apple ID if you don’t already have one. An Apple ID account allows you to preview and buy music, TV shows, movies, applications, games, and more so that you can enjoy them on your iPhone. While this account is free, a credit card is required for setup. Your card is not charged by Apple until you make a purchase from the iTunes Store or App Store.

If your iPhone has been activated and you are ready to factory unlock your iPhone, you go here:

      We can definitely unlock your device, but you will need to verify with the carrier you wish to use it on if they support unlocked phones on their network.

      Thank you.
