I don't have a sim card from another carrier and I want to double check and verify that my ATT iPhone 5 is unlocked. Anyone know how I can check for free?

Thanks

i just tired iphoneimei.info but it said my sim lock was unknown. also said the same thing when i checked my iPhone 5.

since your on at&t, send a unlock request to att. https://www.att.com/deviceunlock/client/en_US/
I did that yesterday with ATT and did all the itunes instructions. Got the congratulations unlock message but I would like to verify it somehow as i'm going to sell it.

I have unlocked three phones from ATT through iTunes. All three were able to use non-AT&T sims. If iTunes says it is unlocked, it's unlocked.

At the iPhone hacks section.
Stop by a T-Mobile store and tell them you want to test out to see if your phone can work with T-Mobile cause you're thinking about switching to them.
They got plenty of sims you can stick in for a minute.
