Is it pre unlocked like Verizon? Or do you need to call them to unlock it.
it is not unlocked if you bought it subsidized.
If its bought under contract its locked and they wont unlock it till the 2 year agreement its up.
If its bought full price its unlocked.
or if you are lucky, in some cases, they will unlock it for you before the 2 years is up. there doesn't appear to be a rhyme or reason to this, but give it a shot: there is an online form that takes 1 minute or less to find and fill out. if it works, great. if not, just a minute lost...
True. You just gotta get lucky.
Sometimes they let u slide.
Great thanks. now I have to explain this to my 65 year old neighbor who is going to israel and wants her iPhone. Fun stuff.
ha good luck: maybe be just faster saying: i have something that might work and then doing it for her...
i'm guessing if accepts the submission, it will finish through in 2-3 days as they promise. at least that is what my friends and i (who were successful) have experienced.
but then, even after that, once she gets the confirmation email from AT&T, she would need to do a full restore using iTunes to unlock it.
Despite what the instructions say, that's not true.
AT&T iPhone 5 unlock
Can someone actually confirm if you don't need to restore or not.
Sync with iTunes with non AT&T sim to unlock
So it's that easy greAt. Thanks
interesting. i guess maybe it just works? how else would one confirm that the phone is unlocked? i didn't get the "congratulations, your iPhone is unlocked" until i did the full restore.
I got my 5S unlocked through AT&T and immediately put a TMO sim in it and it acquired a signal for TMO and all the carrier configuration settings changed. I didn't get a confirmation it was unlocked through iTunes because I didn't do the restore, but using a TMO sim will confirm that it is actually unlocked.
cool. i guess i liked the warm and fuzzy feeling even if i had known it was possible to do it without that. i took my phone traveling to Italy, so i wouldn't have had the luxury to try it and "hope it works."
