    Put in a sim from a non-At&t carrier.

    Ok, I recently received the instructions to unlock from AT&T. I will run that process today. I'm traveling to Mexico and intend on purchasing a pre-paid SIM while I'm there. I'd like to be confident in knowing it is in fact unlocked before I go. I don't have access to another carriers SIM. Is there any other way to confirm it is unlocked?

    If the process you've been given by AT&T involves connecting to iTunes and restoring - there will be a point in that process that will tell you you're unlocked.

    Ah ok. Thank you very much. I will watch for that and report back.

    Also for peace of mind, I think tmobile will sell you just a SIM card for $10. You could get one and try it.

    If you paid full price then they'll do it right away. If it was a subsidized price then they won't so it until it is off-contract.

    Just in case someone finds this later, and is buying a second hand phone that is said to be unlocked (and you therefore won't get this screen), Apple, or the original carrier, can tell you if it's unlocked too.
