    I'm ready to unlock my iPhone 6. According to gh directions from AT&T I'm to retore through iTunes. Haven't used iTunes in years.

    After I restore and get unlock notification from iTunes how do I get my info back that was previously on my iPhone?

    You can either restore via iCloud or an iTunes backup you copied to your computer.

    Can I restore wirelessly for an unlock?

    There isn't such a thing as wireless restore. You have to do it with iTunes.

    you actually don't need to do a restore. once at&t says your phone is added to the unlocked list, it is already unlocked. did this with my 5 and now with my 6 also. just pop another carrier sim into your phone if you want to give it a try

    Like said above no need to restore.
    Phone is unlocked. You can stick another sim in and test it.
