Ahoy, stranger! I guess you found this page because you were wondering how to unlock iPhone 4? Well, you’re in the right place.
Why is iPhone 4 still relevant in 2019?
I know, I know, we’ve all drunk a little bit of the kool-aid and sometimes feel “outdated” for having a phone more than a couple years old. BUT, let’s just remember that any modern iPhone, including the iPhone 4, is “millions of times more powerful” than all of NASA’s computing power when it sent a rocket to the moon.
So, let’s all chill out and accept that the iPhone 4 is still an amazing gadget that does plenty of useful things- phone, camera, launching birds on catapults, etc etc.
So, if your iPhone 4 is locked to one network, it’s well worth unlocking it so you can use it anywhere in the world. If you’re thrifty enough to resist the temptation to spend $1000 on a new phone, you deserve the freedom to choose the best phone plan available, here or abroad.
Three ways to Unlock iPhone 4:
As my grandma used to say, “you can have it fast, cheap or good- pick two”.
Grandma must have been talking about iPhone unlocking! If it’s fast and cheap, it’s not that good. If it’s fast and good, it won’t be that cheap, etc. Let’s apply this analogy to the holy trinity of unlocking:
- Fast and good, not cheap: IMEI unlocks are fast and effective but expensive (up to $100 per phone)
- Cheap, kinda fast, definitely not good: jailbreaking is not a good idea! It’s unreliable and exposes you to security threats. No bueno.
- Cheap and good, not super fast: hardware unlocks cost less than $20. The downside is you need to have the chip mailed to you, but if you’re willing to wait for shipping this is probably the best way to unlock an iPhone 4. The best unlocking chip on the market right now is R-SIM 13.
That’s all, folks! We hope we’ve made you feel at least 10% entertained on your journey into the sometimes-somber world of “why the heck can’t I use my iPhone anywhere I want?”. Pat yourself on the back! Today you learned how to unlock iPhone 4, which makes you a pretty smart dude/dudette.
