How to Factory Unlock AT&T iPhone 6 and 6+ Plus
Jailbreaking and unlocking AT&T iPhone 6/6 Plus with an IMEI unlock service
1. Why is my AT&T iPhone locked?
Wireless providers and carriers often lock handsets (mostly smartphones)
The main reason wireless providers lock phones to their network is monetary- the carriers (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint etc) subsidize the cost of a smartphone for the consumer, and carrier-lock their phones to prevent customers from switching to a competitor and taking the phone with them. AT&T makes the bulk of its money on exorbitant monthly plans and locked contracts.
Carriers also want you to pay rip-off roaming charges if you travel overseas, rather than just popping in an international GSM SIM card and using a local carrier’s network.
2. What is “factory unlocking”? What does an AT&T iPhone unlock mean ?
Factory unlocking an AT&T iPhone is a permanent way of unlocking your AT&T iPhone 6/6 Plus. It is an IMEI unlock, and is done through Apple servers and the carrier – when an unlock is complete, all you need to do is connect your iPhone to a PC/Mac with iTunes installed, and restore. An unlock message will then appear on iTunes.
AT&T iPhone unlocks can be done either directly by AT&T, or by legitimate cell phone unlockers. AT&T will not unlock phones that are still under contract and not been paid off, or have a balance, or reported stolen.
Unlockers can unlock an AT&T iPhone whether off-contract, still under contract, or even stolen or blacklisted.
3. How do I unlock my AT&T iPhone 6/6 Plus ?
Since the launch of the iPhone 5s, AT&T has cracked down on unlocking AT&T iPhones, and options are fewer than they have ever been.
However, there are two possible ways. You can try contacting AT&T directly through customer support or online to unlock your phone. However, this is difficult and AT&T will only unlock the phone under certain conditions (phone is off-contract, paid for full-price.)
The majority of locked AT&T iPhones do not qualify under this criteria and will not be approved. The most common way of unlocking an AT&T iPhone is through a legitimate third party cell phone unlocker, like iPhone Unlock Guys (www.iphoneunlockguys.com)

5. What is jailbreaking, and what is a jailbroken iPhone ?
Jailbreaking is a software hack that lifts restrictions Apple places on its iOS software on iPhones, iPod Touch, and iPads. Sometimes there is a way for the device to be unlocked when it is jailbroken, but this requires staying on the same software version and baseband/firmware, which is difficult and time consuming for the average consumer.
Jailbroken iPhones allow the device to be used and non-Apple endorsed third part apps to be downloaded, custom skins and themes downloaded, and more customization and control over the iOS, which Apple doesn’t allow on its own controlled ecosystem.
