iPhone 11 Max Pro is one of the most sought-after smartphones. The only downside of the iPhone 11 Max Pro is that the majority of people who desire to own this high-end device end up owning it with a 2-year contract. Though it indicates a lower price-tag, the device gets locked in its network and consequently, the owner is stuck with the same carrier for two years.
However, the good news is you can easily do away with this carrier lock and use your iPhone 11 Max Pro in any network of your choice. Moreover, since an unlocked iPhone 11 Max Pro allows you to use any local SIM for making phone calls, it helps keep expensive roaming fees at bay when you are traveling overseas.
Alright! Now let’s get to the point.
To unlock your iPhone 11 Pro, you must provide your iPhone’s IMEI number, which can be obtained by dialing *#06# on your device. Alternatively, you may check your iPhone’s settings to find out its IMEI number.
The next step is to provide the appropriate network information for unlocking your iPhone. You must clear the blockade from the network in which you purchased your iPhone. However, if you don’t know the network in which your iPhone 11 Max was bought, you can rely on your device’s network finder.
Last but not least, find out if your device’s IMEI number is blacklisted. Also, find out if your iPhone 11 Pro Max’s IMEI number has been documented as damaged or stolen, as well as if the contract bills have not been paid. In case your iPhone’s IMEI number has been blacklisted, you will need a different type of service.
The following steps will help you unlock your iPhone 11 Pro Max:
Insert a SIM card from a network other than the one that your iPhone 11 Max is currently connected to.
Use a SIM card that doesn’t ask you to enter a pin code. You may also try disabling the request for a pin code.
Now start your iPhone 11 Max and turn the Wi-Fi on. It will prompt you to download a small update.
Your iPhone 11 Pro Max will be able to function on any network as soon as you download the update.
However, if the Wi-Fi option fails, you may try the following steps:
Link your iPhone to your PC via a cable and insert an unaccepted SIM card belonging to a different network from the one where you purchased your iPhone.
Now start the iTunes app using your PC. Soon it will ask you to download a small update.
So that’s how you can make your iPhone 11 network-free. If you want to ensure your iPhone 11 Pro Max is unlocked, insert a SIM card from any network of your choice. If your device displays a signal and lets you make phone calls as well as send messages, it implies that you have unlocked your iPhone 11 Max.
