There are so many scams out there.

But it's pretty simple. You ask your carrier for the code and if you've paid off the phone, they give it to you.

Sprint, CDMA versions are NOT UNLOCKED WITH CODES. I decline to repeat how those differ.

How to unlock iPhone 6

Depends on your carrier to which it is locked (if it is locked). Why "if" because Verizon iPhone 6 is unlocked out of the box. While other U.S. carriers may be locked. If you want to unlock it for free you basically need to contact the carrier. Call or fill out an online device unlock request form. There was a good article on cNet a while ago. Good for starters.

Now, most carriers will not unlock it if you owe them money or that someone, from whom you got this iPhone, owes them money. In this case you might need to dive into the third party unlocking world where there are lots of caveats....
