There are three alternatives are available on how to unlock iPhone 6 (plus) and iPhone 6s (plus). These options include unlocking iPhone 6 online also referred to as (SIM card unlock) through DoctorSIM Unlock service, unlock iPhone 6 using iCloud activation lock and lastly unlocking iPhone 6 if one has forgotten their Apple ID. I have discussed them below.

DoctorSIM Unlock services is one of the best solutions that I recommend if you are looking for a solution on how to unlock SIM card on iPhone 6. Currently, they have managed to unlock over 1000 phones who are in different networks regardless of the country of origin.

Step 1: Select mobile phone brand

The first step is to select which type of mobile phone brand you are using. This is mainly based on your phone's brand. In this case, since you want to unlock iPhone 6, you have to select iPhone's brand shown by the Apple logo as shown in the image below. If you want to unlock a different type of mobile phone brand, then select the type of phone that you are using.

Step 2: Select phone model and service provider

The next step involves selecting the phone's model. In this case, since you intend to unlock iPhone 6s, select iPhone 6s. You will also be required to fill in the country and our iPhone's network service provider. If your service provider is located in the USA, then fill in USA. The next step is to fill in your network service provider. In this case, if your network service provider is AT & T, then select AT & T. The next step is to choose the payment plan that you will use. There are two types of services provided. They include the Standard AT & T service and the Premium AT & T service. The standard AT & T service is cheaper than the premium AT & T service. However, the standard AT & T service success rate is 60% while the premium service success rate is 100%. In my case, I usually prefer the premium AT & T service since it not only save me time but saves me the hustle of wondering whether my unlocking process was successful or not. This process can be seen on the image below.

Step 3: Phone details and Email address

The next step is entering your IMEI number. If you don't know your iPhone's IMEI number, all you have to do is dial *#06# and you will have your IMEI number. It is important to note that your IMEI number is not the number on the package or your box. It is important to enter the exact IMEI number that has been displayed on your phone. After you have entered and verified your IMEI number, the next step is to enter a valid and working email address. This is because your unlock code will be sent to this email address. Therefore, enter your email address and confirm it is the correct email address by re-entering it again. Read the terms and conditions together with the privacy policy. If you agree, tick the box and add to cart as shown below. You can also check here if your iPhone has bad IMEI.
