    You did mention that.

    Carrier Lab is an unusual carrier to be listed there--it usually means the iPhone was activated with a special test SIM or oneSIM device...

    Also unfortunately, the phone is on an older firmware that doesn't report the full model number of the device, which would assist everyone in figuring out the carrier.

    If you can deduce what carrier the iPhone is locked to (or the whole model number), you can figure out where to purchase an IMEI unlock from (or what carrier to contact for them to do it legitimately).

    I think the B at the end means it is from the UK. You can use a site like imei.info to check exactly what carrier it is locked to. Costs a few dollars to check.

    Do what Simon did to make sure what the phone is locked to and we can go from there.

    iPhone 4 gevey sim will work on that 4.10 baseband. There is no software unlock and a IMEI unlock will depend on the carrier it is locked to.

    I am sure all the answers I am going to ask are on this site somewhere, but I am hoping for an easy answer if I can provide what seems to be the required info.

    I was given an old 16gb model MC136LL, firmware 05.16.02, version 4.3.3 (8j2), serial xx929.

    Can I unlock, using windows pc and get the option of using cydia apps. Thanks for any advice you can share.

    You can get it officially unlocked since that looks like ATT iPhone. Check links at bottom of my first post for a few people that can provide that service. You can jailbreak 4.3.3 with redsnow just fine.

    Hello forum. I just got the iphone 5 from best buy with the old smartphone trade in- essentially free with the trade in. And I unloaded 2 really old smart phones- an Incite and a Thrive. My phone was on my son's upgrade. He likes just plain messaging phones, so I have used his upgrades the last 3 years or so. And I am on tmobile, so I knew it was a challenge ahead of me to fix his phone, and unlock mine.

    Well, tah-dah!!! It cost me $5 with iDeviceGuys, and 6 hours. I got my email stating the phone was unlocked, and with the iphone 5 nothing else needs to be done. How cool was that? I cut down my sim with the sim cutter, emory boarded the back a little, put my sim in the phone, and after a reboot, I got the activation screen and am up and running!! It was almost too easy compared with memories of being stuck with a locked 3gs from an accidental system upgrade by itunes.

    So success for me- no additional contract for me, still on $30 plan with tmo, Now just have to put back his dumb phone on att's account and remove his data plan! Thank you cowboy!
