I have been dicked around frm here to Kingdom. I am trying to unlock 2 3GSs and 1 3G.
I called; they verified that the phones r out of contract & I am on good standing. Was given case #s, told I wld receive e-mails w/in 24-48 hrs (DIDN'T HAPPEN), & that the case(s) wld b "resolved by 4/17" -- whatever THAY" means.
I do not understand how some of you r getting this done instantly. I am leaving the country b4 this magical "4/17" date, & need at least one of the phones unlocked b4 I leave, b/c I cannot sign onto my iTunes Acc't on the cruise ship.
Can anyone who has actually completed the process give me any suggestions?

I just called ATT and requested 2nd level support. They are absolutely refusing to do it immidiate for me. Spoke with a manager and said all wait times are 5-7 days. Anything you were told previously is incorrect. Again, she said there is no way they can speed it up. *****

Am still banging my head against the wall. WHY does this process have to b a boatload of "can't get there frm here"?

Finally unlocked iPhone 4. It took three attempts. First call with a clueless CSR and she told me that they are not unlocking any iPhone 4. The second try was with online chat and still a no go because my 2 year contract does not end until Aug 2012. Finally I called tech support and he just ask me my IMEI and email, 2 days later it's finally unlocked. Just to let you guys know that you don't have to restore as long as you used non-AT&T sim card.

Well, I requested the unlock for my iPhone 3G on the 10th and got it today (12th). I have done the backup and restore part cause I didn't care if I lost the jailbreak because I don't use the phone anymore, but never saw the congratulations message come up. I am guessing it is because I do not have a sim in the phone to activate, so it can't verify I suppose. I wish there was a way to verify that the phone was successfully unlocked without a sim, but looks like I can't. I'll just have to take AT&T's word for it. Maybe one day I will try a T-Mobile sim in it.

actually the unlock wont even take place until you sync to itunes w/ a non-at&t sim in your iphone.

I just called at&t tech support today and ask for my iPhone 4S unlocked. He just took my IMEI and gave me a case #. I hoping this one will be successful too like my iPhone 4.

To get iTunes to Unlock you just need to Activate your phone.
A restore will activate,
puting a new SIM in will activate,
Selecting DeActivate in RedSn0w will force a reactivation.

04-13-2012, 05:13 PM #76This actually DOES work!!!
1) Connected to iTunes with T-Mobile/Gevey Adapter & waited... nothing!
2) Removed Gevey & inserted just T-Mobile SIM & waited... still nohting!!
2) Powered my iPhone 4S completely off, waited a few minutes & then powered it back on...
3) Connected to iTunes & nothing... UNTIL, after about 6-7 minutes, while researching online, the phone said Activating!!!

Official unlock method not working for me. Plz someone help.
I am having iPhone 4 originally locked to AT&T. Got without contract and I am eligible for unlock. Both apple and AT&T confirmed that my phone is unlocked according to their database . But I tried all possible ways nothing makes my iPhone to get unlocked. Here is what I did but no use.
[Currently my phone is in ios 5.0.1 and it is jail broken and unlocked with ultrasn0w. Currently I am in India and trying from here only]
- I tried back up and restore. No use.
- I tried updating iOS 5.1 with customised firmware to preserve my baseband. (currently I am in 1.59) and even it says invalid sim.
- I deactivated through redsn0w and tried with iTunes and no use.
Can anyone help me how to get my iPhone unlocked officially ?
Note : now I downgraded to ios 5.0.1 with preserving my baseband with the help of stitching tool in redsn0w.

When you deactivated wit RS and connected to iTunes did it not unlock? If not your phone has not been unlocked.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
