How To Unlock iPhone 6S and 6S Plus

how-to-unlock-iphone-6s-plusThe iPhones sold in the U.S. are generally locked to a particular carrier you buy it from on contract. This is why you need to unlock iPhone 6S to use it worldwide. While many iPhone owners around the world don’t experience this, it is particularly unfair in America. Fortunately, there are legitimate as well as sneaky ways to unlock your device without losing functionality and latest features.

Why Unlocking iPhone 6S Plus is Necessary?

Millions of users own iPhones, whether the latest or from 2 to 3 years ago. There are varying reasons why owners might want to go for unlocking iPhone 6S from the original configuration:

• To change wireless carriers, while keeping their phone
• To choose another contract
• To be able to use their phone even after the original contract has expired
• To side load apps that are not available on the App store and do not enjoy an official support status

One of the primary reasons why people want to factory unlock iPhone 6S is to get rid of the expensive phone contracts. You may have bought your device for $199 instead of paying upfront for a fully unlocked phone. However, you also have to sign 2-year contracts that are very expensive. At the end of 2 years, you would have paid the carrier more money in comparison. If you had paid about $600 for an unlocked device, you would have obtained an independent voice and data plan.

This is grossly unfair, as phone owners do not have the freedom to change carriers, after they have bought the phones. By unlocking your phone, you can enjoy cheaper plans if you want as well as be more flexible with your calling and texting needs.

Unlocking Through Official Unlock Service

The safest way towards an iPhone 6S unlock is through an official service that performs a factory unlock. As it happens, some carriers do not mind to unlock your device, if your contract with them has been completed, but this is often not the case.
