    Using a non at&t sim is for people with tmobile or foreign sim cards.
    Well shoooooot. In that case I'll finally get around to it!

    There is no reason not to restore from a backup, as you will still get the unlock message regardless. I restored all of my unlocked iPhones from a backup, and each time I received the your iPhone is unlocked message. True, though, that one does not need a foreign SIM card in order to unlock their iPhone.

    Yes, you can restore from the latest back up AFTER you get the unlock screen, what I meant is let itunes finish the restore as new process and then restore from a back up once she's unlcoked.
    Once you get the unlcock message you can do whatever you want with your iphone, it'll always stay unlocked.
    This is how at&t recommend as well to do the unlock process.

    Hey Alli, inserting the non-AT&T to do the unlocking was suggested because it is assumed that you wish to use a non-AT&T SIM after unlocking. You can just back up your iPhone with the AT&T SIM and then restore and the protocol will start running.

    As far as I've been able to tell, the iPhone 5 and 4S shouldn't need to be restored to be unlocked, where the 4 does need to be restored.

    True IF you use a non-AT&T sim to activate/unlock. To just unlock and stay on AT&T a restore is used.

    So let me get this straight, since this is my plan for tomorrow (since my team has a by week). I backup, restore as new, get the screen that says unlocked, and then restore my backup?

    Exactly. Do this, and you won't have any problems at all.

    Sorry it's taken me so long to do this. I was thrown by having to have another SIM.

    I can't wait until I'm healthy again and can travel!

    Thank you so much for the unlock!

    Doesn't Verizon unlock if you call them and tell them you're traveling?

    I agree. It's nice of Mark to extend his unlocking service to the iMore community. Plus it shows that a service like this actually does work.
