I paid for an unlock for my AT&T locked iPhone 4S, and after I restored I got the "Congratulations, your iPhone is unlocked" message. However I'm paranoid and I don't have nor do I know anyone that has a non-AT&T sim card. I'm moving out of the country in a couple weeks and I just wanted to know if there are any sites where I can just type in my IMEI number and see if it's unlocked. I wouldn't even mind if there's a small fee I need to pay. I just don't want to go there and find out that my phone is still locked.

Thanks a lot in advance guys! :D

If you got the congratulations your iPhone is unlocked screen on iTunes then it's 100% unlocked.

Hahah no nothing like that. It's just that since this isn't a kosher method of unlocking (I'm not even sure if it's legal or not), I was having some doubts about it's legitimacy. But if you say it's unlocked if iTunes says it is, then I believe ya. Cheers!

Try this site just so you can feel better. http://dev.mk/
But if iTunes is telling you its unlocked there is no better confirmation than that IMO.

Just get another sim card and try it. I don't know about there but over here they can be bought almost anywhere for 1.

well, let me start from the beginning.

I got an iphone off ebay, said it was unlocked, it wasnt (jailbroken instead)
due to some stuff i was doing with iOS 6 i had to wipe and restore back to 5.1.1, i called AT&T, they said my phone wasnt unlocked and THEY wernt the ones to unlock it. Si i called Apple, and they told me that the Carrier (AT&T) has to do the unlocking. anyway, nobody would do it for me. so i Jailbroke and unlocked it thrugh a Cydia app, it works ( as long as i dont Software Update) so i used it for a few weeks, was playing around with installing SiriPort, and got the "Stuck on Apple Logo" screen, so i turned it off, held home button while plugging Sync cable in, it entered Recovery mode, and after it wiped and reinstalled ( back to unjailbroken 5.1.1) it iTunes popped up and said "Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked", so i was a little skeptical, i used the link above to check my IME # and it says it is still locked. and when i go to Settings > General > Network, there is no place to put in my Carriers Info (StraightTalk). so if somebody could help me out, that would be awesome.

AT&T phones, even when IMEI unlocked, do not expose the Cellular Data Network panel. That is no indication of the phone being IMEI unlocked.

This website used to be a great lock/ unlock verification tool.

Recently, all phones come up as locked so the website can flash up an advertisement to sell you IMEI unlock. Same phones which all used to come up unlocked, now all show locked (which they are not).

For example, this is a screen capture from my Grandson's iPhone4 (usually no sim, just for games). The website shows it "locked" (used to show unlocked) but as you can see my T-Mobile sim works just fine in it.

Disappointing !

Wow, that sucks.
Scooping down to the level of giving false info in order to advertise an unlock website is pretty crappy.
Good to know to avoid that site from now on.
And did you say your Grandson? I thought you were in your 20's for some reason:D

Yes, you can download and install anything from cydia at any time as long as you use your facebook or google login to authenticate yourself to the cydia store.

You didn't read my question.

Both dev.mk and iphoneox.com show the SIM lock status, but dev.mk used to (as recently as a month ago) show a lot more information with just the IMEI. I looked up lots of IMEIs and got the purchase date of each phone, iOS version, carrier, and more.

My question is if any website currently shows that information that dev.mk used to show.

About a week ago (Aug 3rd) I noticed it started showing every IMEI as locked and displaying a pop-up offering unlock service.

It is back to working correctly now for the 2 phones I tried.

Applejuiced, i chatted with an At&t rep and had my iphone 4 unlocked, he said it was done and i would have to restore. i went ahead with the resore but that message never came up saying that the phone was unlocked. i went to that site that you posted and it says that the IMEI is unlocked.

Do you know why it didnt give me that messge in iTunes? Do i need to do another restore?

I restored a bunch of times my i4 too and never got the message either but works fine with a friends tmobile sim.

Hmmm, my question is, why its telling me that my phone is already unlocked? The thing is i haven't receive any confirmation yet..

I've got multiple phones. All unlocked. One was purchased officially unlocked. Two were unlocked by AT&T. The third, iPhone 5, I just paid to have it unlocked.

I've checked three sites, one said "unknown" and now says "locked", another says "unlocked" and the third says "locked". Where do they get the info and who am i supposed to believe? Did I get scammed out of my unlock fee??

This one says UNLOCKED: http://dev.mk/iphone-simlock-status-imei-checker/

So I didn't get any confirmation message from iTunes after following at&t's instructions to backup and restore the phone. I put in another SIM from one of my devices (but also on At&t) and it works. Does that mean the unlock worked? Is the iPhone locked to a particular SIM as well as network or just to network so I need to test with a SIM from another carrier or account?

I'm really not sure how reliable those sites are. Here are my test results.

Both sites say my iPhone 4 is unlocked. Which, should be because contract has ended with AT&T and I've go thru the unlock process as instructed by them. Yet to test with another mini SIM.

One site says my iPhone 4 is locked while the other says unlocked. I paid $24 for an iPhone 5 unlock service, but yet to finish their instructed steps. (Will report back once I do).

You guys seem very knowledgeable with the unlocks, so I have a question.

I have 2 iPhone 4 that are out of contract, in good standing with AT&T. I called them and am now waiting for the email with the confirmation to unlock.

I have 2 brand new iPhone 5's to replace them. However, I don't know if I can activate my new phones before I unlock my old ones. I want to unlock them to sell. So, my question is, if I activate the 5's, can I still unlock the 4's when I get the confirmation email or does the 4's have to be active for the unlock to work through iTunes.

Thanks!

I just received notification from cutyoursim that my iPhone 5 unlock is completed

http://s-url.ro/ says Locked, BUT it also says:

"iPhone 5 lock status is not accurate! Apple DB not updated yet!"

I did connect to itunes, with my AT&T sim installed, AND updated to firmware 6.01. I did not notice a message saying I'm unlocked. But my phone is already activated and already has a sim installed with AT&T service.

http://dev.mk/iphone-simlock-status-imei-checker/
says I'm locked.

http://iphoneox.com/ says:
"Sim lock status: Sorry... No information about this imei!"

There is no tmobile store here in Santa Cruz CA, so I currently have no way to verify the unlock with a Tmobile SIM

My goal ultimately is to use speedtest to compare AT&T and Tmobile data speeds. I expect Tmobile, which is limited to 3g data speeds on iPhones, to be slower than my AT&T 4g.

Since I upgraded from my previous iPhone 3GS, on AT&T with 3g data speeds, to my current iPhone 5, with 4g data speeds, I see 6 times faster data.

I'm guessing Tmobile 3G data will be equally slow.

I use the free app called speed test, from the App Store.

I used iTunes to RESTORE my ATT Usa iPhone 5 firmware.

Moral of the story, a RESTORE was required to enable And VERIFY the unlock for my iPhone 5.

the imei checking websites still all say Locked

It seems I can get an ATT unlock code for my iphone for a limited time. Currently I'm on 6.1.4, and was pretty thrilled to see the 6.1.4 JB is around the corner. Do you guys think its worth upgrading to ios 7 and losing the impending jb in order to unlock my phone?

> This website says my iphone 5 is unlocked.
https://prod.eie.net.au/portal/template/MYMIMEIInquiry.vm

agreed, thanks for the link, works for my imei also, does not say unlocked, it says unblocked (same difference as I know mine is unlocked from iTunes restore):

"Result Your IMEI Number is currently unblocked."

the other 3 imei checking sites have not changed, they say locked or unavailable

This website can ONLY Check if your iPhone is BLOCKED in the Australia. You can't check the simlock status using this site.

I wouldn't trust my IMEI using a Russian site.

It can be useful when buying used iPhone on Ebay or somewhere else.
I've found out that recently checker www.iphoneox.com started to show purchase date and "Find my iPhone" feature status.
If you check activation lock status you can avoid headaches with used iPhone with FMI feature ON.
Hope it will help you.
