    :eek::eek::eek: **** I must be doing something wrong then...

    I backed up then did restore from backup.... but no itunes message...

    Should I proceed with factory restore? :eek::eek:

    itunes message for what? it being unlocked?

    leave your sim in

    restore the phone from your backup

    should say unlocked at one of the intermittant stages



    If you are merely trying to see if the phone has been unlocked, go to www.iphoneox.com

    You have to restore it first before you will be able to use another sim though

    Hey Duke

    I did the check through multiple places to confirm and just did a full backup then i did a full restore but no notification that it is unlocked...

    The true test will be with a new prepaid sim I guess

    thx again

    Sometimes, it appears to take several tries at getting the message.

    That's the ULTIMATE test!
