Why unlocking your iPhone 5 is a great idea:
- Avoid expensive roaming charges -
Data plans are notoriously expensive when travelling and adding roaming plans, especially in this data-hungry, Instagram era!
Rather than adding a temporary package to your account, having an unlocked phone means that you can buy a prepaid SIM card or localized SIM card from a local shop at a better rate, allowing you to use your phone abroad just like at home.
- Selling your iPhone 5 for more money - If you come to sell your iPhone 5, an unlocked version will be worth a lot more money.
- Switching Service Providers - Network providers often compete with one another, trying to one-up each other with new features, cheaper costs, and of course making contracts easier to get out of. For networks that still offer contracts, their phones are discounted and subsidised through the plan, which means they come locked.
Using DirectUnlocks you can avoid expensive termination costs and unlock your iPhone 5 for a relatively low price.
- With DirectUnlocks: Your iPhone 5 warranty remains valid
- The official method approved by Apple and the network carriers themselves.
- The quickest, cheapest and most secure way to unlock your iPhone 5 - with a money-back guarantee.
- Unlock your iPhone 5 from the comfort of your own home.

- Once the mobile phone is unlocked we'll tell you via SMS and email, containing instructions and an unlocking code if necessary, then you can simply pop another sim card in.
- Permanent and 100% legal.
