Therefore, as per the demand, the ways to unlock a phone has started to increase rapidly. There are actually 3 key methods by which you can unlock iPhone 6 Plus. The three methods are- software unlocking, hardware unlocking and advanced IMEI unlocking. Till the launch of iPhone 3, the software unlocking method was very famous.

Through this database, he will able to find out when the device was produced, the colour of the device, its internal memory size, the model number and even the status whether the phone is locked or unlocked.

As soon as you reset your device, you will be able to switch to any carrier you want to. This method will not interfere with the internal configuration of your handset or tamper the hardware in any form. This form of unlocking works at the factory level.
