Hello

Kyle Brockman :

I don't see a reason for you to not if you need to do this. I will warn you by doing so you might break your device. Also by doing this it will void your warranty with apple.

There are companies that do the unlock for a fee. Are you saying it wont work ?
Expert:  Kyle Brockman replied 6 years ago.
I'm not saying that, I just want you to understand that this a can be bad for your device if not done right, and it will void your apple warranty.

What is the right way. ? If I know the right way I can quiz the unlocker before committing.
Expert:  Kyle Brockman replied 6 years ago.
That is a hard question to answer, They is many different ways. Each way is based on which version of the software you currently have and modem firmware. Also after doing the unlock you will wait a while before doing any software updates, as a new version of the iOS can mess up your unlocked phone.

Do Apple intentionally "fix" any new or changes in soft ware so as to mess up unlocked phones ?
Expert:  Kyle Brockman replied 6 years ago.
I know they fix the holes that the unlockers use to get in.
