One of the down falls to many cell phones is that they are exclusive to one network or another which puts you out of luck if you really want a phone on another network but your current provider doesn’t offer that phone. The iPhone is certainly no exception to this rule and many people broke their current contracts or waited until theirs was up and switched to AT&T so that they could use the iPhone since it was a revolutionary development. Still many others don’t do this because they have excellent coverage or customer service on their current network.
The good news is that an iPhone is able to be used on any network once it is unlocked with various software or methods. The software jail breaks the phone releasing it from any locks to the current network from which it was previously tied to, AT&T being the specific one in this case.
You do not have to sacrifice anything when unlocking the phone either. The software remains up to date and many software programs guarantee that you can constantly receive updates to the software even after the phone has been switched and offer customer support as well. There is also a money back guarantee for many of these products if for some reason it doesn’t work.
Another huge perk to this method is that applications can also be unlocked as well saving tons of money from purchasing them or buying something that you ultimately really don’t want or like and wasting your hard earned money by trying it.
Another method many people chose to try is to do it on their own with various tutorials and guides since it is claimed that the phone only requires a few simple steps to unlock and anybody can do it even without a huge technological background or proficiency as long as they can read and follow basic instructions.
One worry people may have is the lack of technical support for a jailbroken iPhone since obviously Apple will not cover a phone which has been modified. However, support is endless on the World Wide Web and many third party companies will offer their own support services especially if their software was the one used to unlock the iPhone and allow it to be used on virtually any cell phone network that you desire.
The reason that the iPhone is exclusive is due to a contract with AT&T with Apple which will eventually expire. It is useful to try a variety of methods when jail breaking your iPhone because sometimes a certain method may not work for one person but it will be perfect for another individual. Also, if you’ve tried unlocking it on your own it might not hurt to spend a little money and purchase software which will do the job for you which is as simple as plugging your iPhone into your computer and letting it do its magic. With all the different methods available to you today, there is no reason for you to not have access to your own iPhone.
