Hello. I have a iPhone 6 Plus that I wanted to unlock to connect it with metro pcs. I submitted the request online already and received instructions having to use a att SIM card which I do not have. I did not receive a code, how do I get a code to unlock?

Hi @vlopez95


Glad to help!


iPhones use an alternative process rather than unlock codes to unlock the device. The steps are as follows: 

  • While using a Non-AT&T SIM
    1. Remove the old AT&T SIM card, and insert the new SIM card from the desired carrier. In this case, MetroPCS.
    2. Complete the setup process.

You can also review these steps on our Device Unlock Instructions support page. If you need further assistance, please let us know!

Iphones don’t have unlock codes. You may have gotten the wrong unlock instructions. All you need to do to complete the unlock is to put the metro pcs SIM card into the phone.
