    Default Is my iPhone considered unlocked?
    I bought an iPhone 4 let year on ATT and used it until I upgraded to the 4S.

    I then sold my iPhone on Ebay as unlocked.
    The person that purchased my iPhone is trying to use it on t-mobile and is telling me I sold him an unlocked iPhone4.

    Is this true? I though once a phone is unlocked on AT&T and used for a year, it is always unlocked.

    Was I correct in selling the phone as unlocked?

    Thanks in advance.

    Do you mean the person you sold it to said it is a locked iPhone 4?

    ATT iPhone 4's are never unlocked. A gevey sim normally has to be used as a unlock.

    You owe buyer a refund.

    The only way to use it with T-Mobile is to buy a Gevey SIM. Even then, it only works with iOS 4. If you kept the phone current and upgraded it to iOS 5, unlocking is NOT POSSIBLE.

    Either way, you sold a locked iPhone and buyer deserves a refund.

    ^Pretty much what he said. What firmware was it on when you sold it?
