You might have heard a lot of people talking about their unlocked iPhone. So, what is it all about? Well, in simple words unlocking iPhone means the mobile device is no more tied or attached to a particular service provider or carrier, such as Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, etc. Almost every carrier provides iPhone at much cheaper rate than what is usually charged at Apple Store.

At present, there are some reliable software or application available in the market that can help unlock your iPhone. Some of them are – Ultrasn0w, Unlock JailbreakTool, Redsn0w, Toolkit, and many more.
