Tried unlocking - question about success?
Is there some way to tell if it was successful?
I don't have a sim card for another carrier. I do have some old AT&T sim cards from previous phones.
I tried putting one of those in. When I went into settings, I saw a button now for "carrier". However, this button did not appear again (even if I take the card out and put it in again).
Also, if I go into general, then about, I can click on "network", but I get a message saying the sim card is not provisioned.
Does this mean it is unlocked? Is there any way to tell if you don't have access to a different carrier sim card?

Okat, I entered experiment mode. Here is what happened.
I have the iPhone 3GS, and the iPhone 3G (potentially unlocked). I have two sim cards, one of which came with each of the iPhone (and in theory only one of which should currently work - the one from the iPhone 3GS).
In my iPhone 3GS, the normal sim card works as it should. If I put the "old" sim card in, I get a message saying there is no service, and the sim card is not provisioned.
If I put my current sim card in the theoretically unlocked iPhone 3G, I get a message saying "different sim detected, please connect to iTunes". If I put the old sim card in, I get a no service message.
Can that information be used at all to determine if my phone is unlocked. I am in the same situation as Dooks - I want to advertise it as unlocked, but only if it really is.

Check unlock sucess
I walked into my local T-Mobile shop when they weren't busy and they were helpful and friendly and gave me one of their unassigned SIMs and configured it for their network - wap.voicestream.net (I think) and it shows T-Mobile as the carrier. I don't think they care. Any unlocked iPhone is more potential customers for them.
