    Anyone want to call in and unlock my iPhone 3GS?? Please! lol.....

    So I called AT&T Customer service at 4:06 P.M to unlock my iPhone. Had to open a case because I had purchased my iPhone 3GS online. Gave them the IMEI #. the Representative told me that even though I din't have the "Proof of Purchase" that they might still Accept the unlock he also said it might take to 6 -7 days to process. :)

    At 4:26 I got the E-mail with the PDF file and instructions (anyone know by looking at PDF if they approved it?? am Not sure.)

    I've restored a few times and still says "Sim Not supported" :(

    I followed the instructions and set the phone up as NEW during the restore.

    Finally got a screen in iTunes that said the phone was unlocked.

    Took almost 24 hours after I called and got the email.

    AT&T Sim

    Do you have the AT&T sim card that came with the iPhone? If you do, try the restore with the AT&T sim installed. That worked for me even thought the sim wasn't active.
