Generally speaking, to purchase an iPhone 6S or 6S Plus you simply do it by walking into the store of the network service that you choose to use with your device. However those iPhone’s will always be locked to that network only which means you cannot switch out the SIM card from another cell phone company and expect it to function with your 6S plus. You have to pay some upfront cost and sign a contract to use the network operator for at least two years. You can choose from one of the data and call service plans provided by the locked carrier. Generally, the plans are expensive and if you want a shorter contract period, you have to pay more every month. You can alternatively purchase factory unlocked phones directly from Apple store and in that case, you have to pay for the full price of the phone including the taxes. If you want the power of factory unlocked phone without having to pay for it, then you need to unlock iPhone 6S that is locked to a carrier.
Compared to other unlocking methods, the factory unlocking method protects the warranty of your iPhone 6+. For any repairs you can take the phone to the Apple store and use the free services under the contract scheme. This means that you can enjoy unlocked iPhone without worrying about the cost of repairs. Apple stores will repair your phone and replace the broken parts if your phone malfunctions within the contract period. Even if you don’t use the contracted service provider, you can enjoy warranty services if you know how to unlock iPhone 6S properly.
