    Only the carrier to which the iPhone is locked can unlock it.

    You must contact that carrier to see if they offer unlocking and

    if you qualify.

     

    Yes, there are Russian speakers/readers in this forum. Post in

    Russian if you wish.

    If you call Apple in your area, and provide them with the IMEI number, they should be able to tell you who it was locked to. You can find the IMEI number by going to Settings, then General, then About, then IMEI.

    You found this forum.

     

    Certainly you can find out how to contact the carrier.


    Carriers want to be found on the internet.  They are not hiding.  Do a Google search.

     

    I am quite confident that you can find out how to contact the carrier as well as anyone else.

    You probaly need to get the original owner to process the unlock with the carrier for you. Some carriers will only process the unlock request only after they prove that they are or were a customer of the carrier.

    Find them on Google and send them an email to see what their unlock policies are. They may only provide unlock services for the account holder.

    Sorry, I don't have any involvement with them. You'll have to find someone to call them for you that speaks French. Would have been easier if you would have purchased an unlocked iPhone from a legitimate source.
