But first, let’s talk about Spectrum. It’s a US mobile service that offers good rates for calls and SMS. In fact, its rates might be better than some other popular carriers, including Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, Cricket, etc. However, to use your device on any other carrier, you would need to leave Spectrum, and that requires an unlock. Below we share a way to make your Spectrum iPhone SIM-free.


Why Unlock Spectrum iPhone

Before proceeding, let’s look at a few reasons Spectrum users should unlock their device. The most important reason is that termination of Spectrum is needed to use the smartphone with a different network. In other words, the device needs to be SIM-free. Carriers typically place a lock on devices to make sure that people will see through their contracts and pay the monthly fee before they decide to use another network carrier.

Besides, unlocking a Spectrum iPhone reduces international roaming costs. How? Well, you can put any local carrier’s SIM in the phone when you are on an international journey. If you fly or ride every few months to new destination, it will help to unlock your phone.

If you go to Spectrum’s outlet and buy the iPhone, it would be locked to its network. So a better option is to take an unlocked device to their office rather than buying one from there. Doing this would ensure that you are not restricted to Spectrum’s services. And hey, if you don’t feel that Spectrum’s plans are a good fit for your budget, just don’t go to them.
