    The other day I decided to restore my phone.. After it was done, I got the screen that says my phone is unlocked...

    It's a 5/16GB/blk....

    I think that site is messed up and says everyone is unlocked. I checked 3 iPhone 5s and they all said unlocked.

    The iTunes message is a lot more interesting though. You bought this subsidized from AT&T?

    Interesting.
    So you bought it under contract?
    If itunes is giving you that message then somehow it is unlocked.
    Did you purchase an IMEI unlock from an online seller?

    Yeah.. I signed my life away for another 2 years with AT&T...

    And nope, I never purchased any codes from any website....

    Not unless you ask Sprint to unlock it for international use.
    It wont work with any other carrier in the US.
    And as you can tell that site above is not reliable at all.
    You got better odds when flipping a coin:)

    Im just a little dubious in inputting the imei number of my iphone into a site i don't know or trust.

    Id rather just slip in another nano sim to check it out.

    I never got that message either with my Verizon phone either, but it is unlocked according to Verizon.

    ----------

    I think that web site needs to fix their site. They are trying to to sell an unlocking service, but according to their site, every phone is already locked. :p
    Hard to make any money!

    These 2 sites seem to supply correct info for the 6 phones we have. 3 locked, 2 factory unlocked, 1 carrier unlocked. The carrier unlocked one was reported correctly as locked on Thursday. Later Thursday evening after it was unlocked, it was reported correctly as unlocked.

    I got the same message after I got my iPhone 5 unlocked. Basically, yes, your iPhone is unlocked. Be happy. :)
