If you purchased your iPhone within the past year or two, it's likely to be unlocked, and free to use with any SIM. If your iPhone is older than that, it might be locked to a particular provider. But that doesn't mean you're stuck with that provider forever.

You should be able to get your network to unlock your iPhone for you - often for free. In fact, you might even be able to unlock your iPhone yourself without ever needing to contact the original provider.

It's completely legal to unlock your iPhone if you've finished paying for your contract or you purchased it outright unsubsidised. However, if you're still in the process of paying for your contract it means you don't fully own the iPhone yet, so you're best to check with your carrier before unlocking it.

If you're not sure whether your iPhone is locked or not, we have a guide to help you find out. The issue usually occurs if you've purchased your iPhone second-hand or inherited one from a friend or family member who has updated to a newer model. If it's locked, you'll find that the iPhone isn't working on your mobile network, and that's because it's tied to a different network.

If you discover that it definitely is locked, read on to find out how to unlock it.
