How To Get The Iphone To Work On Other Phone Services

Jun 4, 2008
Once you have bought an iPhone you would definitely like to find out how your phone can work on other phone services. When you buy it you have to stay with AT&T, because Apple offers you a two-year service plan, and the only way you get out of this plan, is by paying a large amount and breaking the contract. Only this way can you find some other alternative in order to operate your iPhone on other phone services.

Why Not AT&T?

Apple claims that AT&T is the largest phone service provider in the United States, but in reality, more than half the customers have other service providers. Some customers find AT&T expensive, while others are not satisfied with their wireless network and internet connection. Also, the customers living in Canada and Europe cannot avail of their services, because iPhone is not yet officially available in these countries. Hence they have taken other service providers in any case. Because, otherwise they cannot use their iPhone at all and why shouldn't they, if they have bought it?

Do You Have To Hack Your Iphone?

At one time in Germany, iPhones could be bought unlocked. This happened around the end of 2007 and lasted for a short while. Normally Apple sells their iPhones locked only to one carrier, and the German laws did not approve of this status. Finally the rights were granted to T-Mobile and the iPhone could be bought with a locked SIM card. But you could not connect freely to any other phone service provider before the contract expired, and if you wanted to do it, the only way was by hacking it in some way. Unlocking of your iPhone was only possible through hacking, and only then could you connect to another phone service. Now, thanks to the internet, it is possible to learn how to unlock your phone through the numerous tutorials offered on various websites. There are step-by-step directions to unlock your iPhone and further directions on how you can connect successfully to another phone service provider.

Do you need to know anything else?

As it appears it is not a very difficult job to get your iPhone working through other phone services because the task of hacking your iPhone is not difficult too. Since Apple is losing out customers in this manner, it naturally does not support hacking. Along with the new software that Apple develops for fixing bugs or adding new features to your iPhone, it can completely block your new service provider and your iPhone can then not be used at all.
