Unlock Your iPhone 5C
The iPhone 5c is an economy version of the iPhone 5s, but it still beat out the iPhone 5 for function and capability. Congratulations on your purchase.
You may have thought about getting the unlocked iPhone 5c, and if you did—excellent choice! If not, then read on. You can definitely benefit from this!
Common Uses and Benefits
Your iPhone 5c is able to use your chosen carrier’s network. Tons of apps from iTunes or Apple-endorsed sites are available to you. Apple and the big carriers also protect your iPhone 5c from viruses and hackers.
This is enough to make most of us pretty happy, but what happens when you travel, or when that hot game or app catches your eye, but Apple does not allow it to be installed on your phone?
Options for an iPhone 5c Owner
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act protected big companies like Apple and others in the past. It was great news for the consumer when it was not renewed, because you can now unlock your iPhone 5c and not worry about legal repercussions.
Search online and you will find that Apple, AT&T, and other carriers now offer step-by-step instructions about to how you can unlock your phone.
Doing it their way still has a downside to it: you have to have been a customer in good standing, have paid for the phone in full, and not be in a contract.
Benefits of an Unlocked iPhone 5c
For starters, unlocking your iPhone 5c will grant you access to apps and games that previously were out of your reach.
But the greatest benefit for many iPhone 5c owners will be for their wallets—you can switch carriers and get better deals.
By locking their phones and offering deals through specific carriers, Apple entices the consumer into a long-term agreement by which the carrier can charge elevated talk, text, and web rates. You think you are getting a great buy when you get a low cost for your phone while getting the contract, but you end up paying more in the long run.
What’s Bad About Unlocked Phones?
Not everything is better when you decide to unlock iPhone 5c. The lock on your iPhone 5c is like the deadbolt at home; your privacy and your belongings are safe as long as you have the security mechanism. Once you unlock your phone, it leaves your device vulnerable to cyber-criminals and all sorts of viruses. If you find yourself concerned, you can always get mobile device anti-virus or anti-invasion apps to protect yourself.
Wonders of an Unlocked iPhone 5c
OK, so you really want to unlock your iPhone 5c. People have successfully unlocked their phones for a long time now with few regrets. Along with the benefits of switching carriers or using a different carrier for travel reasons (to avoid those horrendous roaming charges) and the fun of accessing games and apps not normally available, you can also change some properties on your iPhone 5c iOS. With these removed restrictions, the Apple iPhone 5c will do amazing tricks in your hands.
