How do I know the iphone is unlock w/o t-mobile SIM
I got my 3 iphones unlock from "unlockfusion" and I check the IMEI few diffrent website it show " unlock" but I dont have a active t-mobile SIM to test it. I have a in-active t-mobile SIM and I insert that in the iphone wait for awhile not thing happens not even a searching bars. the only thing it did when i pop the SIM in then the msg " No SIM card installed" go away other than that nothing happens
is there anyway to tell my phone now is unlock or not?

well first of all since the sim card is inactive you won't get any signal bars (i think)
second of all check your settings General>About, it should say t-mobile as the network and carrier 12.0 for the "Carrier setting"
and im pretty sure with that being said, your phone should be unlock
but the best way to make sure it is... with the active tmobile sim like you said

Op don't worry it is unlocked. I also did not have tmobile sim till yesterday and used an inactive sim to activate the phone. But today at work I used a colleague's tmobile sim and I got signal fine.
