I was approved for unlocking and I plugged the phone into iTunes and did a backup, then restored. No message. I did the restore again. No message. Does it show up before the phone asks you if you want to set up as a new phone or restore from back-up, or at the very end when the phone is back to normal? Does it flash up and then disappear... in other words, if I was doing other things, could I have missed the screen? Or does it stay up until I dismiss it? Lastly, is there any other way, besides replacing the sim, to tell if the phone is successfully unlocked? Lots of questions.
