Easier way to Unlock iPhone Using SAM

SAM today has been updated and make everything easier for you to Unlock your iPhone.

These are much easier instructions on how to unlock your iPhone using SAM. This method will work with the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 3G on any jailbreakable firmware including 5.x. The original instructions can be found here.

Step One
jailbreak your iPhone. You can find instructions on how to do that using the our jailbreak tutorials here.

Step Two

Follow step two – step Fourteen on this tutorial. then come back here.

Step Fifteen
Make sure your Method is set to Auto Detect and tap Utilities. Note**: If Auto-Detect doesn’t work you can change Method to By Country and Carrier and select the phone’s ORIGINAL carrier manually.

Step Sixteen
Press the Attempt Activation button. If you don’t see Attempt Activation then select De-Activate iPhone and theAttempt Activation button should appear.

Step Seventeen
A popup will appear letting you know that “this may take a while”.

Step Eighteen
Eventually your iPhone will respring and after searching for a bit your new network will be detected!

Step Nineteen
You should now backup your iPhone unlock ticket in case this method is ever blocked. You can find instructions on how to backup the unlock ticket using iFile here, by using RedSn0w from here.

Your phone will work normally with your SIM card and that SIM card ONLY since we have tricked iTunes to think that ICCID is one of the intended carrier’s. The phone can be rebooted and connected to iTunes freely without losing the “unlock”, at least for now.

A big thanks to Sam Bingner, Loktar_Sun and Laforet for their contributions!
