Hi there,

(I've used these forums before but I lost my old account. Also there is no iPhone 5 sub-forum - if there is, sorry for posting here!)

I have an iPhone 5 which was gifted to me by an America-residing uncle. Unfortunately, it had a Sprint sim in there when I opened it up so I cannot activate it or use it with another sim, and I cannot even activate it on Sprint outside the US as I live in the UK.

However I know there are ways to unlock / activate the phone.

Is there any method which is the safest or preferred method?

Thanks so much.
