    Unhappy Unlocking Contract Free 3GS
    Hi,
    i recently got a new iPhone 3GS for $499 .. the guy at the apple store said it is contract free and will work with other carriers as well ..

    I was able to activate my iPhone but my non AT&T sim is not working !!

    is there a seaprate procedure for unlocking these contract free phones ? do i have to contact AT&T or apple for unlocking the phone ?

    Thanks

    What you are getting is you don't have to sign a contract , so you are paying higher price but the Iphone is still lock to AT&T. You have to jailbreak first before you can software unlock. There is no jailbresak currently at iOS 4.0

    Not sure where you live but if it is the US, contact free does not mean unlocked. You still can only use At&t.

    No I had to pay full price for mine too. You also said the guy at Apple said it would work with any carrrier? Take it back based on that.
