I bought this phone because it was supposed to be an unlocked phone. I took it to a carrier to be activated and it’s says it needs an unlock code. It came with no instructions or codes so now I have to pay more money to have it unlocked. Very disappointed
I bought this iphone (8) for my 12 y/o son as Christmas present. My first impressions after opened the box it was like new!! I was trilled..NO scratch or dent at all.. battery health 92%..Than I went to set up my SIM card :(.. and I got the msg ..the iPhone still locked ..I could not believe!..they said "Unlocked for all GSM carriers, including AT&T and T-Mobile" Yes I have T mobilie.. However I was committed to find out how I could unlocked this phone because of the deal/ price/ no scratch...After my research (IMEI number) I found out it was locked by AT&T..and At&T has a online and free "unlock device portal" I filled a few forms and the phone was unlocked after 1 hour ( you don't need to be a AT&T costumer to ask to unlocked it but need to be elegible -see the AT&T policy)....yeah all this process took 6 hours of my day untill I figure out everything..The phone now is fully unlocked and is working perfect..
i’ve only had for a few days- but seems to be working the way it should. I was happy with the appearance, the speed of getting to me safely. If this phone provides to last- I would definitely consider using groupon again for a similar purchase.
