Bought the iPhone X second hand, but need to unlock carrier.

Bought the iPhone X second hand, but need to unlock carrier.

Hello,

 

I've bought this phone second hand and its locked to Xfinity Mobile and would like to use the phone on a different carrier. Could I unlock this?

 

I have no information on the original owner.

 

Thank you.

You are likely to have a difficult time unlocking a phone where you don't have contact with the previous owner. The carrier is probably going to want the account holder/previous owner to request the unlock. If you succeed in unlocking it, you might then find that it is blacklisted.
