    Then contact AT&T and have them unlock it for you.
    Show them the receipt that you paid no commitment full price for it.

    If you restore as new it should say it is unlocked. Restoring from an old backup will not show that.

    Fill out the unlock request form on AT&T website no need to fax them And when they send you the instruction to unlock your phone then it is the time to restore your iPhone on iTunes. I bout with full price and did the same process now mine is unlock
