    Contact your carrier and request an unlock (if the phone is not under contract)...or find an expensive private party unlock service (they average between $100-$200 and do not serve all carriers).

    If it's Sprint, you're pretty much without options. If it's T-Mobile, they are usually pretty good about getting you the unlock code. As for AT&T, I don't know how hard it would be. If it's Verizon, I think their models are already unlocked (Not 100% sure).

    Good luck.

    AT&T requires the phone to be off contract to even discuss unlocking, and then require you to submit a form from their website to get it done (can take up to 5 days from what it says on their site).

    Can you still use a third party unlocking service though?

    I didn't think you could, but apparently in one of the threads in the 5S sub, a guy who runs one of the private unlocking services says it is possible, but it also costs like $150.
