How to unlock a Prepaid iPhone 6


How to unlock a Prepaid iPhone 6

I bought an iPhone 6 prepaid with at&t and gave it to someone who lives in Mexico. I tried to have it released through IMEI in Mexico but it said it got rejected because it might be attached to a phone plan, which isn’t the case. It’s been paid in full, brand new, and hasn’t been activated yet. What can I do to get it released?

Re: Prepaid iPhone 6

If it is a prepaid phone, it must be used on ATT 6 months before it will be unlocked. No exceptions. In case you are wondering why, you probably paid approx $200 for a $400 phone. The reason it is so cheap is that 6 month requirement.
