When you unlock iPhone 4S from its network, you open your device to a wide range of experiences with SIMs from other carriers. The benefits are many, but so are the risks, and this is something you need to be aware of before you approach anyone to unlock your iPhone 4S from the carrier it is currently locked to.
The risks of doing an illegitimate unlock for any iOS device are considerable. For example, doing a software unlock for your iPhone using a method similar to jailbreaking may not be considered as legal, but it can end up bricking your device and rendering it permanently unusable. Another ill-advised method is hardware unlocking, which involves modifying your iPhones internals to allow other SIMs to be used in the device. The risk here is permanent damage to your device, which is certainly not worth taking.
Legal Way to Unlock iPhone 4S
The only legal way to unlock iPhone 4S from its carrier’s restrictions is to apply for an IMEI whitelist for your device. You can do that with the carrier, but it involves extensive paperwork and could put you out of pocket several hundred pounds in the process. The more affordable and quicker way is to approach an online unlock service provider like iPhoneIMEI.net, which is certified and authorized to offer such services.
You must understand that whitelisting your device’s IMEI can't be done by just anyone. iPhoneIMEI.net has privileged access to modify the status of your SIM and device from locked to unlocked.
