    I just had my iPhone 3GS factory unlocked by AT&T and was wondering if there any need for SAM/SAMperfs for factory unlocked iPhone?

    Nope, you won have no need for it.
    You can activate with any sim and you are factory unlocked.

    It's nice for confirming the unlock if you don't have a foreign sim. Just set Sam to use a random country/carrier and see if it activates. If it does, it's unlocked. If it doesn't, it's not.

    Buy an inactive AT&T sim on eBay and use it for activations = problem solved.

    Or you can walk in a store an=nd pick up one that's active. I bought one for $10 from T-mobile made a quick call right from the store!
