I have an iphone 4S which I purchased under contract with T-mobile Germany (Telekom-DE) in June of 2012. I was living in Germany at the time, with no plans to leave, so I thought the 24 month contract would be fine. Well, I was forced to transfer jobs back to the United States, and rather than pay out my account, I decided to stop payment by closing my bank account. Shady I know, but the only other option was to pay 50 euros/month for the remaining 18 months on the contract. So now I have an iphone that is locked to T-mobile Germany, which is virtually useless aside from WIFI capabilities. I have tried putting a T-mobile USA SIM card in, but it does not recognize it as a valid carrier. I cant seem to find any web-based services that will unlock my phone, but I know there has to be someone smart out there that can help me! Any advice you can provide would be so appreciated. I will even bake you cookies and send them to you. Any other proposals you have for my repaying you will also be entertained! Thanks!
