Why unlocking your iPhone 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 for more money - If you come to sell your iPhone, 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 for a relatively low price.
