Hi everyone,


First, I want to apologize about my bad english, I'm french.


So today, I bought on Ebay an Iphone 5 64 Giga, Model A1249 MD668LL/A, and apparently simlocked. That's why the seller sold it with a R-sim6 cards.




Here is the information some IMEI website checker told me about it:


Warrantly: Active

Technical support: Active

Resgistered Status: Yes

Activated Status: Yes

Purchase Date: Validated

Sim Lock status: Locked


So, that's mean until I don't use the r-sim in it, I can't use my phone with  any other nanosim than the sprint one?


is they're any way to unlock my phone without this r-sim and legally?


I saw some website about unlocking directly your iphone 5, but it's a bit expensive. Is it legal? Can apple helped me about this?


Thanks you.



iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.1
