There are a few ways to go about unlocking iPhone 8, we have written about this in depth in our ultimate iPhone unlocking guide, but the outcome is to unlock your iPhone 8 using IMEI. IMEI unlocking works by whitelisting your device in Apple’s own database, creating a permanent and secure unlock for your iPhone 8. Here’s how to do it:


  1. Locate your iPhone 8 IMEI Number – Dial *#06# on your keypad and your IMEI number should be displayed. If this doesn’t work for any reason, you can also find the IMEI number embossed on your iPhone 8 device, with the IMEI number being in the SIM tray on both iPhone 8 models:

Next make sure you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network, then power off the iPhone 8 and insert a SIM card from a new carrier before switching the iPhone 8 back on, your iPhone 8 should then be fully unlocked.
