So what exactly is going on with your iphone 4? DO NOT upgrade your iphone yet. you will lose your unlock because it will upgrade you baseband and gevey sim will be useless.

That did not happen to me. I would personally choose every option on the SAM app until it says that the iphone is unactivate and itunes detect it.

Hey bro just download tiny umbrella and tell it to kick device out of recovery. Assuming you didn't update all will be well and you can go back to gevey.

The easiest way to check if you are unlocked is with redsn0w. Muscle nears tweeted about it.

So far I'm 2 and AT&T is 0 on unlocking my phones not bought from them just keep tryin'

I used the link that AT&T chat link that was posted a couple pages back and I was able to get my iPhone 4S unlocked! I guess it really depends on the representative that you get. I stated that I wanted to unlock my iPhone 4S. She then looked it up and asked where I got the phone. I told her I bought it on craigslist and then 2 minutes later, she processed the unlock for me.

Thanks for the SAM suggestion. Was able to keep my jailbreak and eliminated the hassle of restoring to get my iPhone unlocked =)

Persistence paid off - I got them to unlock it for me! Now I guess I need to follow the instructions to use SAM since I'm jailbroken and I'm not giving up my jailbreak.

You may be waiting for a 20-30 mins but it beats calling right?

The url is: https://sales.liveperson.net/hc/5188...!Section=MyATT

and I wrote about my experience here: http://geekmeans.com/so-you-want-to-...our-att-iphone
Thank you so much for that link! Right now it's closed but I will try again soon!

Got it!!

Craigslist 3gs unlocked. Called two days ago, just got email. Used SAM to deactivate, plugged it in and got the unlock. Never been an AT&T customer and only called once.

Thanks man! Just used SAM and got the message in itunes saying that my phone is unlocked. Next thing I'm going to have to figure out is whether or not I can redo my jb (I'm on 5.0.1 with the 1.59.00bb). I want to update my bb so I can get rid of ultrasn0w - it's been nothing but buggy.

If you have your APTickets saved, I think you can upgrade to 5.1 to update your baseband, and then downgrade back to 5.0.1. With that said, 5.1 has a newer baseband than 5.0.1, so I'm not sure if that will cause the signal strength bug to manifest itself.

I'm kind of nervous about that. I guess there's no way for me to just update my bb to whatever the 5.0.1 bb is?

No, because the basebands have SHSHs just like the main firmware as of the iPhone 4.

But your baseband will still not update until you restore to stock firmware.
Or just stay where u are and remove ultrasnow. You don't need it any more.

Mine's done. I'm still using my 3GS purchased from AT&T in June 2009.

Used online chat Tuesday night. Got the email with instructions about 2 hours ago. Performed a backup and restore and sure enough, got the "Congratulations" message.

I'll probably be contacting them to unlock my mom's 3G (she's now upgraded to a 4S) too.

I never really "needed" ultrasn0w - I only installed it to fix the signal strength issue caused by being on the old bb. I only preserved the old bb to preserve the ability to unlock for resale value and in case I needed it for travel. Now that I have an official unlock I no longer need to keep that old bb.

I'm confused now though. If I make a custom 5.0.1 ipsw, there's no way for me to also update to whatever bb came with 5.0.1?

Oh I see. You were on AT&T with the saved unlockable baseband.
What you could do is go to stock 5.1 that will update your baseband. Then restore back to custom 5.0.1 and jb untethered with redsnow.
