Unlocking iphone

Hello,
I will be moving abroad and will therefore have to cancel my virgin account.
I would like to be able to keep using my phone, purchased through virgin, and am wondering what the easiest way is to get my phone unlocked and ready for a European sim card.

Thank you!

Hi, My wife wants to unlock her phone. What’s the procedure?

Re: Unlocking iphone

Don’t you fret, Djrnbeodnd! We’ve got you covered. Virgin Mobile will assist with unlocking a device under the following circumstances:

  • The device has not been reported as lost or stolen or otherwise flagged as ineligible to be unlocked
  • The device has been active on the associated account for at least 12 months with the account active at that time

If you believe you meet the above requirements and would like to request that your DSU-capable device be unlocked, contact Virgin Mobile Customer Care by dialing 1-888-322-1122.

Re: Unlocking iphone

I purchased a phone 10 months ago with insurance claim.

Nobody told me about 12 months requirement for unlock.

I am traveling soon and needed the phone unlocked. NO HELP AT ALL! been a customer for 3 years and wasn't planning on leaving, but now I have to since I cannot use the phone and I need one for work!

spent an hour trying to get it done, customer service reps been transfering from one another and apologizing for inconvinience.

Is there someone who can help with this?
