LiamBanks Posted April 6, 2013 Share Posted April 6, 2013 How can I unlock my iPhone 4S on Sprint? I bought my iPhone 4S off contract to begin with and have been with them almost 10 years. I have been through several contracts and never missed a payment. All I want to do is unlock my iPhone 4S so I can sell it and get the 5S (or whatever is next) when it comes out. I called *2 from my phone and they told me to call the International Service Team at 1-888-226-7212 (They wouldn't even transfer me). I called the number and they answered and said that they received an error and had to transfer me to an International Tech. They transferred me and then I got a response "The subscriber is out of the the subscription area Error TX87152" and hung up on me. I called back and spoke with another person and explained what happened and she said she could unlock it no problem. Then... "I have to speak with my supervisor it's giving me an error code. Let me put you on hold." 10 minutes later... "Okay, let me transfer you to the International Tech Team, I will make sure they are on the line before I disconnect with you." Another 5 minutes later... "Since you are not on a current 2 year contract we cannot unlock your phone. Sorry there is nothing we can do." I don't understand why I am being punished for being a good customer and fulfilling my contract with them. If I had called earlier before my contract expired, there wouldn't be a problem. But now since my device is paid off and my contract is up there is nothing they can do. Do I have any other options for unlocking my device? ---- Edit: Sprint gave me an unlock code, but apparently the code is useless. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
