    You have to restore via iTunes in order for it to become unlocked.

    Or, at least, activate in iTunes.

    I have deactivated with Redsnow every day since and they (3) ip4 iphones won't unlock. My sister-in-law called on her old iphones only hours before I did and I was able to get hers unlocked within 24 hours. Her 3GS I just turned off Ultrasnow and put in a t-mobile sim and itunes activated it. Her ip4 was not jailbroken, but I deactivated it with redsnow and put in the t-mobile sim and again itunes activated it and unlocked. My other ip4 (3) won't unlock yet. I've been checking every day. I don't know why mine are taking so long and hers were so quick. She has an AT&T account and I don't.

    I called CSR and told them I brought an iPhone 4 32g out of contract full price to use on my girlfriends line and now I want it unlocked to use for travel she then ask for the IMEI and the next day I had the confirmation email. Side note brought the phone of Craig's list the day before I places the call lol

    My point is, the actual services provided is worth it for the 40+% of unlimited AT&T consumers and even the less fortunate capped data consumers. 3G data speeds are more consistent with AT&T than other providers. HSPA+ is very successful for iPhone 4S users in terms of speed. I'm still amazed that my wireless data speed rivals and in many cases exceeds that of DSL and base Cable home Internet services.

    Sprint is not as adept at customer service as most would claim. This comes directly from employees who work at sprint. Verizon, based solely on personal experience, has the worst customer service where problems will persist or not be resolved. AT&T, admittedly, has the least knowledgeable employees. However, AT&T still takes care of my issues no matter the horrific length of time needed to acquire the resolution.

    Here's another way to look at how AT&T is slightly ahead of the rest. We strayed from the original posting about unlocking phones. Sprint paid nearly 1.5x the amount per phone than AT&T. IMHO, because of that, Sprint will not provide the unlocks. Verizon, I think, only provides unlocks for older devices and has a much lengthier process for unlocking a device than AT&T's new process (which is still ridiculously long). So at least AT&T is making up for small down falls.
    Dude! ATT speeds suck. You really should do speed tests and compare to Tmobile, you will see the truth. Customer service is a joke.

    I can confirm that this method worked for me. I was using my iPhone 4 which had been locked to a Deutsche Telekom (T-Mobile GSM) contract. I requested through Telekom that they unlock the iPhone 4 and they told me it would take 48 hours for Apple to process it. They also stated that a restore would be required, however, I simply inserted my new SIM card and plugged into iTunes, at which point iTunes stated that an UPDATE to my SIM card Activation was available. it downloaded something and bingo, my iPhone 4 was unlocked. I assume the same process would work on an AT&T phone as the iPhone 4 is exactly the same hardware.

    I hope this helps. Avoid a restore whenever you can!
