How old is your iPhone? If you bought it within the past two years, it would likely be unlocked and free to use with any SIM. But older iPhones, such as iPhone 5/5s/5c, are usually locked to a particular provider.

But that doesn’t mean that you’re stuck with that provider forever. You could unlock your iPhone fairly easily. There are several ways that you could try.

Note: It's completely legal to unlock your iPhone if you've finished paying for your contract, or you purchased it outright unsubsidized. Otherwise, it’s best to check with your carrier before unlocking it.

Top 1. Contact your network provider

The first thing that you should do is to contact your network provider and ask them to unlock your iPhone 5. If you have finished the contract, you should be able to get your iPhone unlocked easily, and most of the time, for free.

Since there are too many different carriers in the world, and each one has a specific way of unlocking the phone, it’s impossible to describe them one by one.

Top 2. Using a third-party unlocking service

You could also try to use the help from one of the many mobile unlocking services. Many retailers can help you for a small fee. One of the recommended unlock service is UnlockBoot. It can easily and quickly unlock any iPhone from any carriers (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Xfinity and Verizon network).

Please remember that not all mobile unlocking services are reputable. So always read all of the small print before you pay as some of them can surprise you with extra bills at the end of the process. Find the one that promises you refund is the process is unsuccessful.

These services require your iPhone’s IMEI number before they can unlock your phone. To get your IMEI number, you could dial #06#, view it from your iPhone Settings General > About menu, or view it from iTunes while the iPhone is connected.
