    Default Can anyone help me unlock my iPhone 4s?
    I have a jailbroken iPhone 4S running 5.0.1. I still have the original sim card the phone came with but I never activated it because I used H2O Mobile and since my phone was already locked to At&T, I didn't need an unlock. But now I plan on switching to PTEL running on T-Mobile's network and I need to unlock my phone to T-Mobile. Can anyone help me?

    If it is out of contract you can call AT&T and they should unlock it for you. Alternatively you can use a site like http://ideviceguys.com/unlocks/ to unlock it for cheap.

    I don't think the phone was ever in a contract. Doesn't AT&T only unlock phones that were previously in one of their contracts?

    If it is locked to them and not on a contract they will unlock it. I think you have to be or have been an AT&T customer to request it though.

    I bought the phone from eBay so contacting AT&T won't be an option. Is iDeviceGuys completely safe and legit? And is there any way I can do it myself?

    Ideviceguys is a site owned by one of our moderators here (Cowboy). It is legit.

    I purchased the unlock service just now. I have to wait 24 hours and then plug my phone into iTunes and it will unlock by itself?

    Yup, soon as he lets you know its done just put your non-ATT sim in and connect to iTunes or wifi and it will unlock.

    Aloha Simon... Unlocking a 3GS for a friend... Did it through eBay... There is the old AT&T sim in it still (out of contract) My friend is going to take it to tmobile tomorrow and get it hooked up... Can I complete the unlock process with the at&t sim card still in it?

    You would have to restore it or deactivate it to complete the process with an AT&T sim.

    Unlocked finished and everything works perfectly! Thanks Simon. I only had to wait a couple hours after payment and my phone was unlocked. But I have a question. Is the unlock permanent? And is it unlocked to every carrier?
