Anyone know of a reputable seller for unlocking an international iPhone? I have a friend who gave me his UK Iphone 4S but need to find someone who can unlock it for me. Thanks. (I want to use it on ATT)
Quote from SlidingBike View Post :
IMEI = international mobile equipment identity means, you can send your IMEI number to the unlocking service(check eBay) and they could unlock it(even if its US OR UK phone)wave
No. iPhone can not be unlocked just by their IMEIs. The unlock request to Apple has to originate from the network to which it is locked. So the ATT ONLY unlocking service on eBay will not help you unlock UK phone. You will have to search for unlocking service which unlocks UK network phones and the charges could be $30-$80, depending on the network to which it is locked and the unlock service.

You may be correct since the guy who has unlocked my phone on ebay has asked the network name. I stand corrected.. Thanks for the clarification...

I entered a request to have my iPhone 4 unlocked through AT&T early this week and got a rejection email yesterday. The email stated "We cannot complete your request because the service commitment for this iPhone has not been completed or no valid current/ former mobile number is associated with the request."

This doesn't make any sense to me - my iPhone 4 contract expired on Aug 31st and I've since upgraded (with the same number/acct) to a new phone. I tried calling AT&T and spoke to two unhelpful CSR who could not provide me a reason or point me to someone who could help. They asked me to resubmit the request, but I'm sure it will be rejected again. Any ideas what gives or who I can contact at AT&T to help?

thanks!
Why do want waste time just calling AT&T goon Ebay pay $5 and get it unlocked its worth for time you spend on AT&T

Will the ebay unlocks work on AT&T IPhone4s with IOS6 installed? I see some sellers mention to downgrade before unlocking. Anyone have experience or know? I see some here got their iphone5 unlocked so I dont see why this is an issue...

This may be a stupid question, but how do you know your phone is unlocked? I got a notice from an ebay seller that it had been successfully unlocked. I backed up and restored through iTunes per instructions. But, is there a way to confirm that the unlock was successful?

you should get message in itunes -> "congratulations, your phone is unlocked'

or you can try to check on sites like imei.info or s-url.ro and others which shows Lock status

just bought an iphone 5 and when I requested the unlock for my old iphone 3gs they said they won't do it because it is not currently used. Anyone know how to make sure its unlocked because its going overseas to a relative of mine?
