Save Costs on Roaming Charges Abroad
Using a cell phone abroad can be expensive, and many people use unlocked GSM iPhones when they travel to avoid paying high roaming charges. A businessman going on a week-long trip to Europe or a hiker setting off for four months in Africa can easily purchase a pay-as-you-go SIM from http://www.mrsimcard.com/ to place cheap calls and send text messages to friends and colleagues while on travel. This also means people living in other countries where a phone may not be available can purchase an unlocked phone and use it in their home countries.
Traveling with the iPhone
An unlocked iPhone is perfect for international travel. Simply pop in a sim, configure data and away you go. Most of us either have an iPhone sitting in a drawer, or have access to a second hand iPhone. If the iPhone is not yet unlocked, you need only purchase a one time Factory unlock at http://www.mrsimcard.com/tips/ul.html The Factory unlock is a one time process which does not change your data; but instead allows you to use any cell phone company offering GSM service the world over.
Difference Between Factory Unlocked iPhone and locked iPhone
A locked iPhone is tied to one specific carrier and therefore can’t be used with other wireless network providers. A Factory Unlocked iPhone can be used with a SIM card on any network. Factory unlocking is a process where the iPhone is remotely unlocked by Apple. Its the best way to unlock an iPhone as the process does no damage to data and allows you to install updates as released by Apple.
The Factory Unlock Process – How it Works.
The Factory Unlock is remote and does not require you to bring in your iPhone. Visit the site, complete the form, wait for confirmation. Unlocking takes 1 to 5 days depending on the carrier. Once the unlock is complete we send you a confirmation email. At that point you should insert a sim from another carrier, connect the iPhone to iTunes on your computer via usb cable and look for final message on iTunes. “Congratulations your iPhone is Unlocked”
Enjoy your unlocked iPhone
