    Unlocking = The process of removing the Carrier Restriction from the iPhone
    Hacking = The process of being able to add and remove files from the iPhone

    If you are the second owner of the phone, I'd just recommend restoring and then using your att sim. If you need it unlocked for obvious reasons, just check to see if you have an "installer" icon and there ya go
