How to validate if the iPhone is unlocked (after following the above steps, and not having another carrier SIM)?

Views: 646 Replies: 7
I have unlocked my iPhone from AT&T. Went through their website and did the steps, and got a confirmation.

Post that did the steps suggested by Apple.com to backup and restore the iPhone.

I want to validate if the process is successful, and if my iPhone is ready to be used in another carrier. I do not have another SIM card to check.

Is there a place /menu in iPhone or a site where i can connect and check if my phone is unlocked.

Connect the phone to iTunes, click on its icon, and click Restore iPhone (NOT Restore Backup). If the phone is unlocked iTunes will display the message "Congratulations. Your iPhone is unlocked."

Hello Lawrence,

I have recently unlocked an AT&T iPhone 6 using the over the air (iCloud) method, yesterday I borrowed a co workers T-Mobile SIM, I tried it in the iPhone 6 and the iPhone displayed T-Mobile as the carrier on the upper left of the screen along with the signal strength.

Does that verify a successful unlock by AT&T?

Thanks much!

Yes. If you don't get an error message when you insert the SIM it is unlocked.
