How to Activate iPhone 6 or 6S that Needs Zip and Social Security Number SSN

Hello there! If you are new here, you might want to subscribe to the RSS feed for updates on this topic!

If you purchased an iPhone 6S, 6S Plus, iPhone 6 or iPhone 5 which needs to be activated using ZIP and SSN, here’s how you can do it.

On A4-based devices, it’s always possible to bypass activation by “hacktivating” it with jailbreaking tools such as redsn0w or sn0wbreeze. However, iPhone 4S and later models such as iPhone 5, 5s, 5c, 6, 6s have stricter requirements to activate it.

At present no tools are available to accomplish this. Alternatively, you can try this method which so far has not been successful.

One of our customers had just purchased a new AT&T iPhone 5 off eBay but he’s stuck in this situation in which iTunes is asking for the Zip Code and the last 4 digit of SSN of the phone. The original owner simply refused to provide any information to help him activate his new iPhone. Why? We have no idea.

Don’t despair if you’re stuck in this situation because we are now offering this service to help you activate your iPhone. What we need from you:

  • 15-digit IMEI of your iPhone (Go to Settings, General, About).
  • The phone number tied to the iPhone when it was purchased.

Just like our official AT&T iPhone unlock, we will submit these information to unlocking servers and they will be processed accordingly.

Servers will take about 1-7 business days to return with the information needed to activate your iPhone. We’ll then pass them to you so that you can use your iPhone again!

This service supports AT&T iPhone, Sprint iPhone or Verizon iPhone which needs the SSN and ZIP.

Don’t wait any longer because we know that you’ve been waiting too long! Get the information you need to activate your iPhone now.
