    Default Free AT&T iPhone Carrier Unlock + Lock Status Check Everyday On iMore Forum

    Will Strafach is having a special sale, selling unlocks at 13 dollars if you email him before 11am EST. He's at @chronic on twitter I didn't use his services but he was recommended as a stand up guy by Rene Ritchie.

    Default iMore User Reviews UnlockStreak Activations

    Jack John Brown, an iMore forum user, wrote an interesting article about AT&T refusing to unlock the iPhone 5, Verizon offering it as already unlocked, and about what to do to get it unlocked with a third party software (hint: enter the free iMore contest): Unlocking the iPhone 5: UnlockStreak Activations for iTunes | Jack John Brown

    Sure thing. Just repeat the entering procedure.

    Yes you can unlock without activating a new SIM card.

    I would like to hear about Alli's feedback too :--).

    Yes indeed my software runs on a legit company. UnlockStreak originally introduced the Dell Streak Unlocker 2 years ago and has been featured and reviewed on various well known blogs on the web.

    Hey Guacho, yes for sure. It stays unlocked - guaranteed. This is because the unlock is not jailbreak based where the unlock only works for a certain firmware version. Instead, UnlockStreak Activations make use of the already existing SIM lock / SIM unlock mechanism in the phone. It's like a hidden lever that gets pushed.

    Got my instructions this morning. Not sure if I'll have the opportunity to run through everything before the weekend though. But I will keep you all posted!

    Looks like it could be a bit - gotta get hold of a non AT&T SIM.

    You do not need to use a different carrier sim to see if it is unlocked. Visit this website to see status of your phone.

    Alli is unlocking it, not checking the lock status. That site you showed does not mention the carrier it is locked to. I do give that information though (free of course).

    I didn't win, but he sent me a 50% off coupon. Unlocked my wife's 4s and it seems to be unlocked. didn't get a message in itunes, but a website said it was unlocked.
    Would be nice to get another 50% coupon and I would unlock my 4s

    Online checker isn't 100% accurate. You should have gotten a message in iTunes saying its unlocked.

    I herewith confirm that it is unlocked. Perhaps you missed the screen? You can always test it with a non-AT&T SIM card. For another coupon just email support AT unlockstreak DOT com

    I wouldn't trust the online IMEI check only, it might mean your IMEI is in the Apple's white list but I believe you still have to go through itunes and get the unlock message to confirm the IMEI was indeed added to the list.

    Same thing here, my wife's ip5 didnt get the unlock screen but the IMEI checker says it's unlcocked so I'd have to do restore again later since I dont have any simcars to try. I did get the unlock screen on my iphone 5 so I'm good to go.

    Congrats, hopefully you'll just not own it but also get a chance to use it.

    On T-Mobile it already works for voice, but compatible 3G/4G is still in early stage of rollout. Perhaps planning a trip abroad soon?

    Till this day I remember a wise word from a nice lady from customer service at Orange Polska (telecommunications provider in Poland)
    "the art is not to own it but use it!"

    Wait...didn't you have to have a non AT&T sim in order to do the unlock? That's what's been holding me off from doing it.

    Are you saying you did the unlock without inserting a non AT&T sim (which the instructions say you need)?

    Nooo, you dont need to have another sim card to do that, this works the same as at&t process, once your IMEI has been added to the white list go ahead and restore your iphone as new ( back it up before), at the end of the restore you should get a " congrats, your iphone has been unlocked" message.
    At the end of the process say NO when ask to restore from back up, set up as new and dont restore until you get to see the unlock screen.
    Using a non at&t sim is for people with tmobile or foreign sim cards.

    Alli, I also unlocked this way (via restore) without a non-AT&T sim.
