Thread: Apple Supplies iPhone Unlock Codes Through iTunes

  1. #81
    Well, you see, your problem is most probably because you are trying to do all this extra garbage with ultrasn0w and preserving your baseband. The phone is unlocked, you don't need to do that crap anymore. Seriously, if the carrier has unlocked it and Apple has unlocked it, why in the hell are you worrying about all that extra ********?? Quit trying to do stuff that is completely unnecessary and I bet you that you won't have to worry about this problem. Make sense???

    Yes it is not getting unlocked. Saying invalid sim. But AT&T and apple both confirmed that my iPhone is unlocked. I am in India and I don't have AT&T sim to use. Hope it is not needed to deactivate or activate with at&t sim. I an using a service provider sim only.

    If you deactivate with RS and put your service provider SIM in then iTunes should say it's unlocked.

    If it is definitely unlocked then just restore your phone to standard 5.1 - you'll have a tethered JB but no need to worry about preserving BB any more.
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    Having fear to update the baseband. If not unlocked after updating baseband then have to use a iPod touch. Pls help.

    I have an iPhone 4S, which is JailBroken & was running T-Mobile via Gevey Adapter. I initiated an online chat session with AT&T. They asked for my IMEI# & about 7-8 min. after providing it, an agent instructed me to connect to iTunes & Restore, whereby I would then be Unlocked... BUT after reading a post on here about not having to restore, HERE IS WHAT I DID INSTEAD:

    1) Connected to iTunes with T-Mobile/Gevey Adapter inserted & waited... nothing!
    2) Removed Gevey & inserted only the T-Mobile SIM & waited... still nohting!!
    3) Powered my iPhone 4S off, waited a few minutes & then powered it back on...
    4) Connected to iTunes, waited... & after about 6-7 minutes, while researching online, the phone said Activating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Is preserving baseband is the only reason for not getting is unlocked. Can u please confirm on this. If that is the only reason then I can boldly go further on this. But I really doubt preserving baseband will not interfere in verifying with apple server for unlock.

    I say go ahead and update it the right way. If you quit messing around with all the hacked unlocks like you are doing, it will more than likely solve your issues.

    Again, as I said before, if Apple AND AT&T both have told you that the phone is unlocked, then it is unlocked. It isn't as if you are dealing with some shady 3rd party person. Once they have assigned your IMEI to unlocked status, then that is all there is to it. There is nothing else for it to be because they are the ones who control it.

    Just do a restore to get it back to stock 5.0.1 so you can still jailbreak it, just do not try to do anything else with the ultrasn0w or any other form of non-provider unlocking. I am more than confident everything else you are doing is what is preventing you from seeing it as unlocked. Just update the baseband and restore the phone properly and I have 99.999999999% confidence that you will see it as being unlocked. You have altered it enough with old basebands and jailbroken applications like ultrasn0w that it does not look like it should to the servers, so it is not able to show you it is unlocked.

    Odd.... Try doing it again. Make sure not to run ultrasn0w or anything while doing it.

    I have an iPhone 4S that I just bought from someone on CraigsList, which is JailBroken & was running T-Mobile SIM with a Gevey Adapter. I initiated an online chat session with AT&T. They asked for my IMEI# & about 7-8 min. later an agent instructed me to connect to iTunes & Restore, whereby I would then be Unlocked... BUT after reading a post on here claiming I didn't have to restore, I thought it was worth a shot & so HERE IS WHAT I DID INSTEAD:

    1) Connected to iTunes with T-Mobile/Gevey Adapter inserted & waited... nothing!
    2) Removed Gevey & inserted only the T-Mobile SIM & waited... still nohting!!
    3) Powered my iPhone 4S off, waited a few minutes & then powered it back on...
    4) Connected to iTunes, waited... & after about 6-7 minutes, while researching online, the phone said Activating!!!

    Now my baseband (Modem Firmware) reads 1.0.13 & I'm still JailBroken, of course! F.T.R., I bought this off someone from CraigsList.
    Most noteworthy is the fact that I was told my phone was UNLOCKABLE by an agent on the phone just a couple of hours earlier!!!

    How did you manage to get the unlock? My phone's contract ends at the exact same month. That was a really lucky 3rd attempt. What did you say to technical support?

    All I said to the support tech is "I want to unlock my iPhone so I can use it overseas." All he wanted was my IMEI and email and then after a few minutes he gave me a case #.

    Few years ago, my friend gave me her iPhone 3GS. But it was locked to AT&T.

    So now AT&T has the unlock process going on. Is there any way i can contact AT&T support without calling them? I'm not staying in US.
    I tried using the AT&T Online Chat, but it requires an AT&T Wireless number.

    Can someone enlighten me about this?

    No, you will have to call them. I saw someone said a few days ago that you can use skype to call their 1-800 number for free though.

    Thanks a lot medsouljah, I told them what you told me, and they processed my unlock! Just waiting for the confirmation e-mail :-D

    It's about time AT&T started unlocking iPhones. I did mine today and it was very simple. I didn't have to restore first. Worked Perfectly! I think the need to restore first is only for ios 4 and earlier.All i did was insert my non AT&T sim, opened itunes, plugged the phone in and my iphone then said it needed to be activated so i chose my wireless network and within 20 seconds, i got service and itunes said the unlock message.

    Hey guys, I just came home from work to follow up on my unlock request, and I'm happy to report AT&T unlocked my iPhone :-) No need to pay a shady IMEI remote unlocking company...

    When did you request your unlock? I did mine on Thursday April 12th and am still not unlocked.
