Unlock Your iPhone with Outstanding Balance

Most of us love to find online deals but getting an iPhone is a bit tricky because you’re bound to run a bunch of issues if you’re not careful with your purchase.

For instance, you may purchase an iPhone that’s blacklisted or blocked on the carrier network due to unpaid bills or outstanding balance.

Firstly, it’s important to know the status of the iPhone e.g. outstanding balance before attempting to unlock it.

In this example, we will use T-Mobile iPhone due to the fact that it’s currently the best carrier to unlock right now (as at Summer of 2018).

T-Mobile provides a free IMEI checker that will show whether your iPhone is blocked or financed (outstanding balance).

If it’s blocked, then you should consider removing the blockage first using the T-Mobile blacklist removal tool.

Once the blockage is removed normally you’ll either get the message “Congratulations… ” or “This device has an outstanding balance that must be paid…”.

If the device wasn’t blocked initially, you can proceed with unlocking it using the official T-Mobile iPhone unlocking service.

We highly recommend that you get a T-Mobile iPhone right now instead of other iPhones which are locked to Sprint or AT&T because they are somewhat require a lot of time and effort to get them unlocked.

Sprint iPhones for example have a status called SPCS on the Sprint database. If this status is NO, it’s more challenging to remove the outstanding balance. Whereby if the status is YES, it can be done very fast.

Meanwhile, AT&T iPhones normally have the following status:

  • Clean – no unpaid bills, not blacklisted, out of contract
  • Service Agreement – can’t be unlocked with a low cost service
  • Lost or Stolen – blacklisted and can be unlocked for use outside of USA using premium service (slow right now)
  • In Contract – as the name implies and requires a semi-premium service to unlock
  • Active on Another Account – the iPhone is tied to another customer’s account but can be unlocked using this

Yes, it’s very confusing just to get an iPhone unlocked. If you have any question, you can leave your comments below.
