In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of unlocking your iPhone from AT&T. Unlocking your iPhone allows you to use it with any carrier of your choice. Follow the steps below to unlock your iPhone and enjoy the freedom of switching between different networks.

Step 1: Check if Your iPhone is Eligible for Unlocking

To begin, you need to determine whether your iPhone is eligible for unlocking. AT&T provides a simple online form that allows you to check if your device can be unlocked. Visit the AT&T device unlock page and enter your iPhone’s IMEI number, which can be found in the Settings app under General > About > IMEI.

Step 2: Request an Unlock Code

If your iPhone is eligible for unlocking, proceed to request an unlock code from AT&T. You can either call AT&T customer service or submit an online request form to initiate the unlocking process. Provide all necessary information accurately and wait for confirmation from AT&T.

Step 3: Backup Your iPhone

Prior to unlocking your iPhone, it is crucial to create a backup of all your data. Connect your iPhone to a computer using a USB cable and launch iTunes. Select your device within iTunes and click on “Back Up Now” to create a complete backup of your iPhone’s data, including contacts, messages, photos, and apps.

Step 4: Insert a Non-AT&T SIM Card

Once you have received confirmation from AT&T that your unlock request has been approved, power off your iPhone. Remove the existing SIM card and insert a non-AT&T SIM card from another carrier.

Step 5: Connect to iTunes

Power on your iPhone and connect it to your computer using a USB cable. Launch iTunes, and you should see a message indicating that your iPhone is now unlocked. Follow the prompts in iTunes to complete the unlocking process.

Step 6: Restore Your iPhone’s Backup

After your iPhone has been successfully unlocked, you can restore your backup to get back all your personal data. Connect your iPhone to iTunes again and select “Restore Backup” to transfer all your files and settings back onto the device.


  • This process may take some time, so make sure you have a stable internet connection.
  • Unlocking your iPhone may void any warranty or support agreement you have with AT&T.
  • If you encounter any issues during the unlock process, contact AT&T customer service for assistance.

Congratulations! You have successfully unlocked your iPhone from AT&T. Now you can use it with any compatible carrier of your choice. Enjoy the freedom of using different networks and exploring new features on your device!
