The mobile market’s crowded with networks competing to offer the best deals. But if you’ve got a lock on your iPhone, you can't benefit. Remove that code and consumer choice is, once more, yours. And all you need is the IMEI number of your phone to begin the unlocking process.
You decide who you want your provider to be. Not the other way around.
Don’t get tied into lengthy contracts.
Change to a SIM-only deal and a customized phone package based on your data and phone usage.
Connect to any network internationally.
Swap your SIM when traveling abroad and avoid overspending on roaming charges.
Get the right network for you.
Opt for the network that has the best signal in your area and don’t settle for patchy or substandard coverage.
Increase the investment of your device.
Unlocked iPhone 11 are worth more than locked ones.
Search for and shift over to the best deals.
Compare prices and packages across all networks (national and international).
What's an IMEI, and where can I find it?
An IMEI number is a form of identification that’s unique to your phone. It consists of 15 digits and it’s stored on the Equipment Identity Register (EIR) . This is a central register used by mobile operating systems to store and track data about every phone.
Your IMEI is a vital piece of information, because you can’t unlock your phone without it. But it takes more than simply knowing the number. You can’t, for example, use your IMEI to manually unlock your phone yourself. The information needs to be adjusted in the central manufacturers database. And only whitelisted software like Mobile Unlocked has the relevant access to do that.
Don’t know your IMEI? You can find it in your ‘Settings > About’ screen, under the battery, or by dialling *#06# on your device.
How to unlock your iPhone 11 and other iPhone 11 versions
Many iPhones have a behind-the-scenes lock that stops them from working on other networks. This means that if you got your phone from EE, for example, you can’t swap your EE SIM card with a SIM from Orange or Vodafone. If you try, chances are you’ll get a ‘SIM not supported’ message.
To activate the new SIM card you need to successfully unlock and remove the network lock on your iPhone.
How to unlock iPhone 11 Pro Max to any network? The solution’s easy. Mobile Unlocked can deliver permanently unlocked iPhone 11 Pro Max models to use with any SIM, on any compatible network, in a couple of clicks. Just locate your phone’s IMEI and enter it below:
It doesn't matter what network your iPhone is registered to, whether it’s GSM or CDMA. Or what version of the iPhone 11 you’ve got. Our software works on the iPhone 11 model, the iPhone 11 Pro model and the iPhone 11 Pro Max model.
Our iPhone network unlock takes place online. This speeds up the process but it also means you don’t experience any break in service because your phone stays safe with you the whole time. It also avoids any draining calls to your network’s customer support line. Or lengthy on-hold waits. There are no forms to fill in or criteria to meet.
You don’t need an unlock code either, because your device is unlocked remotely or 'over the air' using an authorized process called 'whitelisting'. Whitelisting is an automated process that allows software like Mobile Unlocked to scan Apple's device database. With access to this database, our software can source the IMEI number of your iPhone and remove its locking status.
That done, your iPhone is permanently unlocked and ready for you to insert your new SIM card. The process won’t affect your warranty, and it won’t be affected by any subsequent software updates.
Can you also unlock iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max and other iPhone models?
Our network unlock method is compatible with the iPhone 11 and other iterations of the device including the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. But it also works on the following Apple devices and iPhone models:
There are lots of immediate and long-term benefits to removing the network lock from your iPhone 11. It saves money immediately but gives flexibility and freedom moving forwards. But it’s not the only locking challenge you might want to resolve. From a lock screen to a disabled device, here are the most common phone locking problems with tips on how to solve them.
How to unlock iPhone 11 Pro Max without passcode
A key security feature, the iPhone 11 Pro Max screen lock works in two ways. You can unlock using an alphanumeric passcode, a pin code or use Face ID (facial recognition).
If you bought a used iPhone, the previous owner’s passcode may still be active, preventing you from logging on as you keep using the wrong password. Face ID won’t work either.
If it’s a new phone, you may have simply forgotten your passcode.
Either way, the outcome’s the same. Not only will you be unable to use your phone. But enter the wrong passcode too many times and you’ll disable the device.
With Mobile Unlocked you can unlock your iPhone 11 without a passcode or Face ID, even if it's been disabled or its screen is broken. And it doesn’t involve a factory reset of your device. Which means your data and settings stay safe and in place.
To unlock without password:
Go to Mobile Unlocked
Select ‘Screen Lock’ unlocking mode
Connect device to a PC or laptop using a USB cable
Your iPhone 11 device model will be linked to an Apple ID account. Your account consists of an email address and a password. If you don’t know the Apple ID details linked to your iPhone you can’t access Apple services. These services include: the App Store, Apple Pay, Apple Music, iCloud, FaceTime, iTunes and more. You won’t be able to use or turn the ‘Find My’ app off either.
You can resume access to all Apple services in seconds by deleting the locked or disabled iCloud account. This will then allow you to:
Create a new Apple ID password or log into an existing alternative account
Restore phone to its factory settings
Turn off the ‘Find My’ app to stop the device being tracked by the previous Apple ID
Connect device to a PC or laptop using a USB cable
Click ‘Remove lock’
Wait a few seconds for your unlock to complete.
How to unlock iPhone 11 Pro Max with iTunes
If you’re locked out of your phone because you don’t know the password, you can also use iTunes to activate a factory reset. It's the best way to remove all lock screens. But be warned, this will erase all of the data, settings and passwords in your iPhone. Remember to backup your data if you can.
To restore factory settings using iTunes:
Install the latest version of iTunes onto your laptop or PC
Connect your iPhone
Click the iPhone icon in the top left corner of the iTunes window
Double click the 'Restore iPhone' button
TIP: If your computer hasn’t previously synced your iPhone to iTunes, it may not detect the mobile device. In this case, you’ll need to put it into ‘Recovery Mode’ first. To do this:
Turn the device off by pressing down the 'Volume Up', 'Volume Down' and 'Side' buttons at the same time
Release them when you see the 'Power Off' slider
Hold down the ‘Side’ button and connect to a computer
When the device is detected, click 'Restore iPhone'
How to unlock iPhone 11 Pro Max with ‘Find my’
If you know your Apple login details you can use the ‘Find My’ app on iCloud.com to unlock a disabled phone or get past the lock screen. But, again, this option requires a factory reset, which means a loss of all data, password and settings. It also requires you to have previously enabled the feature on your locked mobile device.
To restore factory settings remotely using ‘Find My’ app:
Go to iCloud.com or open a browser on another iOS device with the ‘Find My’ app installed
Log in using your Apple ID and password
Click ‘All Devices’.
Find and select your locked iPhone 11, locked iPhone 11 Pro or locked iPhone 11 Pro Max on the map.
Press ‘Erase iPhone’.
How to unlock iPhone 11 Pro Max without computer
Included as part of the iOS 15.2 update, you can erase the device's lock screen without connecting to a PC. But you need to make sure your device is running on that updated version and is connected to a cellular or Wi-Fi. You will need the Apple ID and password used to set up the device. And you will experience a factory reset which will delete all of your data including the passwords.
To unlock disabled iPhone without computer
Enter your passcode until you’re prompted to ‘Try later’
Select ‘Erase iPhone’ and tap again to confirm
Input your Apple ID and password
Wait for your iPhone to restart and then set up your device as usual.

Thank you MobileUnlocked! This was a much cheaper alternative to buying a new iPhone Pro Max! It couldn’t have been easier to unlock with MobileUnlocked, all I had to do was provide my imei number (it’s so simple and they clearly show you how to do this) and that was that. Amazing service – 100% would recommend!

It was such a simple and cost effective process! My iPhone Xs was unlocked within no time and I will be returning to unlock my new Apple Watch 4.
Jeffery Brook 15/10/2023
I thought it would be complicated!
I can’t believe how quickly MobileUnlocked handled my request. Looking online, I read it can take up to 60 days to unlock a device, but MobileUnlocked unlocked my iPhone 14 Pro Max in under 24 hours! Fantastic service which I would highly recommend.

So quick and simple! I followed the simple instructions MobileUnlocked provided and within 12 hours of placing my order my phone was unlocked. I would recommend this service to everyone and I will certainly be coming back when I need to unlock my next new phone.

MobileUnlocked are such a fantastic company! They don’t overcomplicate or overcharge, and their staff were both friendly and informative. My phone was successfully unlocked within hours, saving me both time and money. Highly recommend.

I can’t fault my experience with MobileUnlocked. I followed the clear and simple instructions on their website and my request was carried out the following morning. The service couldn’t have been easier, and the instructions couldn’t have been clearer. My phone is now unlocked and I can’t recommend this company enough.

Unlocked iPhone 6
Despite my phone being an older model, MobileUnlocked were still able to unlock it. The instructions were clear and simple, and my iPhone 6 was unlocked in no time (making me a huge saving!). Thank you MobileUnlocked! Highly recommend.
Please note: this will take you to our network check service which is not an unlock. If you already know which network your phone is locked to, then please use our unlocking service and select your network in the dropdown.
