    I think now my iphone 5 is possibly unlocked.
    I thought when you plug it in to itunes that you get a "Congratulations" message?
    I,m not getting any message.
    Is there something else i have to do?
    All help appreciated.Thanks.

    For my AT&T iPhones I got the unlocked message after a restore.

    I have never had the "congratulations" message with my NZ model phone, but it's definitely unlocked. I think it depends on the operator.

    The most reliable test would be to try a different SIM.

    Thanks guys for the responses. All sorted now. I got the Congratulations last night after I restored it.
