    I have updated the iOS of the phone and cannot be activated as of the moment as it requires a valid SIM from its carrier. How do I deal with this problem? I have several questions which I hope you could answer:
    How much is it to unlock the phone if the contract has already expired and as I live in other country?
    In case I dont have enough money to unlock the phone, is it possible to purchase a SIM from your company without necessarily renewing the expired contract? Will the activation using the carriers SIM going to work even if I am in the Philippines?Will the activation using the carriers SIM going to work even if I am in the Philippines?

    Hi!

    For your first question: It depends on the carrier. Your best bet would be to contact them.

    Second question: It is. You can buy a SIM card from the carrier the phone is locked to and not activate it. It will work.

    I hope everything goes smooth =)
