iPhone Unlocking and IMEI Serial Repairs
iPhone unlocking and IMEI serial number repairs fast and affordable! We offer a couple different methods for unlock, and for repairs depending on carrier and needs of the new phone company.
iPhone unlocking allows phones to be used on other carriers that the phone was not purchased for, such as an original Sprint iPhone being used on T-Mobile or Verizon. With unlocking this becomes possible.
IMEI Repair means that the phone will be able to be used on the original network again, or in the case of a global blacklist be used on another network. Not all models and networks are able to be repaired, See the options below to see what we can do for that phone model.
What others say..
“My experience with this shop has been very nice. I’ve used them twice and both times they were really good. Fast service and great communication are always a plus since we rely on our computers and phones so much every day. Thanks guys.”
“I really appreciate the staff at Gadgetfix. They are courteous, knowledgeable and honest. I have been here 3x’s and each time I have been pleased with the results. If they aren’t able to fix it, they just let you know instead of putting a bandage on it and saying it’s fixed. I would highly recommend them for electronics repair.”
“Prices are very reasonable, service is fast, customer service is phenomenal! The owner (I believe he was the owner lol) is very respectful and super kind and friendly. I am very pleased with the service. He fixed my phone for me right before closing which was a life saver!”
There are two ways to unlock an iPhone. These methods only work on iPhone, however we do offer services for android phones as well. The method you choose decides price, speed and what options there are! Call if you have any questions.
Method 1: TurboSim
TurboSim unlocks the iPhone by placing a smaller sim card over your existing sim card, This tricks the phone into thinking it’s unlocked. This method works on all iPhones from the iPhone 6 and up and allows them to work on any carrier.
Cost: A TurboSim unlock is $65 in store.
Unlock Time: Instant
Downsides: A turbosim unlock is seen as “semi-permanent” meaning that the sim card must always remain in the phone, and if the phone updates or gets reloaded you may need to re-activate the sim card. We do this for an additional $10 outside of 90 days. Using this method in the past has been blocked by Apple, However, each time it has been there had been a resolution to fix the problem and have them continue to work. However, this method is provided as-is without any guarantee of working long-term, however, it should.
Method 2: Carrier Unlock
Carrier unlocks means that the phone will be permanently unlocked without needing additional sim cards as the turbosim does, this would be the same unlock as if you bought an unlocked, not-assigned to a carrier iPhone originally.
This method can take anywhere from 24 hours to as long as 2 weeks depending on the original carrier, the status (balance owed, financed, etc). This method can also cost anywhere from $20 to $150 depending on which phone, the carrier and type of unlock needed.
The turbosim is the fastest, and usually more affordable route. Call to discuss the options and questions.
IMEI unblocking allows a phone to be used on the original network again, We can unblock phones that are blacklisted for lost/stolen/fraud, However, we cannot unblock a phone blocked due to finance. If we do so it will go back to being blocked within 60 days.
Unblocking services are taking up to 7 days currently. Please stop by, or give us a call to order this service. We can do this remotely without you having to stop by.
