All you need to do is type *#06# into your smartphone keypad to find your phone's unique 15-digit IMEI number. (You can also find it by going through the 'Settings' icon on your phone's home screen.)

Take your IMEI and type it into our website and pick your phone’s model (for example, iPhone 12 Pro) and network (Sprint) from our drop-down menu.

Our software will get to work straightaway, scanning 200 plus manufacturing databases worldwide to extract the SIM unlock code needed to unlock your phone.

For all iOS devices the SIM unlock will be processed over-the-air as soon as you're connected to the internet or WIFI. Just switch your device on, with your new SIM, and the phone will automatically update and activate the unlock.

For Android devices you'll receive a code to type it into your phone. Then just remove the old SIM card and insert a new one. Easy..

Unlock your ATT phone: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • Why is the unlocking process different for Android and Apple devices?

    Apple products are whitelisted. This whitelisting gives approved or authorized users or entities access to data held within its system. Through whitelisting, Mobile Unlocked can source and directly update Apple’s manufacturing database to change a phone’s status from ‘locked’ to ‘unlocked’. Doing this means you don’t have to enter an unlock code into your device to free it from the network. Simply turn on your device with the new SIM card in and it will automatically update and unlock it.

    Android devices don’t offer the same whitelisting access. Instead, we scan worldwide manufacturing databases to retrieve the unlock code. This code is emailed to you and is also included in your order tracking document. Just type the code into your phone to unlock it, insert your new SIM and you're done.

  • What is whitelisting?

    Whitelisting refers to the process that takes place when approved or authorized users or entities access data within a computer’s system.

  • Do you just unlock phones?

    No. Mobile Unlock works on tablets and wearable tech as well as phones. This means you can SIM unlock iPads, Apple Watches, and Apple iPhone devices, as well as Android tablets and Android wearable tech.

  • Can I permanently unlock my phone myself?

    To permanently unlock your Sprint wireless phone yourself and use it with another carrier you’ll need to put in a request to Sprint customer service or their team of network operators and follow the device unlocking process defined by your provider. You’ll be checked to ensure you fulfil their eligibility requirements. And have to pass a number of different identity and authorization checks. The process is a little different for deployed military personnel. The quickest and easiest way to carrier unlock your phone is to let us do it for you. All we need is your IMEI.

  • What’s the difference between GSM networks and CDMA networks?

    GSM networks are mostly accessed by mobile phone users in Europe. GSM stands for ‘Global System for Mobiles.’ CDMA networks are more common in the US. CDMA stands for ‘Code Division Multiple Access’. They're both 2G and 3G radio networks used by wireless carriers and are rapidly being overtaken by 4G and 5G Long Term Evolution (LTE) devices. These will soon make CDMA and GSM a thing of the past.
