Globe is now unlocking out-of-contract iPhones

Globe iPhone Official Carrier Factory Unlock

Good news to owners of Globe-issued iPhones. Globe is now offering official iPhone unlocks for eligible customers. Unlocking an iPhone allows the user to use a SIM card from another network and could be particularly useful if travelling abroad, or if the user decides to give or sell the device.

To be eligible, the device must be out of contract and that you still have an active account with Globe. The account owner where the device was originally tagged must be the one who initiate an unlock request.

Customers who need to unlock their iPhone should get in touch with Globe thru their hotline (730-1000 or 211) or live chat representatives. If eligible, a customer will be given a reference number for the unlock request and will have to wait for 5 days. Samsung devices are also supported.

We were not immediately able to verify if prepaid iPhone and Samsung devices purchased from Globe can be unlocked as well. We’ll post an update if we get more info.

Called globe hotline 730 1000 just now. The agent said they have no means to factory unlock iphones. Has anyone tried asking globe about this and was luckily assisted to unlock their iphones?

Called the holtline today, and the lady did confirm that they offer this service now. I was trying to get my iPhone 4 unlocked, but I didn't have the phone in front of me, nor did I have details of the IMEI, so will call back to get this done.

Thanks for the info on this blog. Very helpful. I though Globe never progressed on this...
