    Hi Doug:
    Thanks for the detailed, step by step unlock information.
    Very helpful.

    My husband followed all the steps above, but did not receive the “Congratulations, your iPhone is unlocked” message.

    Is it safe to assume he hasn’t been unlocked? What should he do now?

    Any guidance is helpful.
    Thanks.
    –D

      I have heard of this happening before. Here are a couple of things to try. First, try to do a complete restore again. Sometimes it will work the second time. If that still doesn’t work, call AT&T and ask them to verify that your device has been cleared for unlock. They will want your serial number and IMEI number to look it up. If AT&T verifies that your are cleared to unlock, then the next step is to just try and put a T-mobile sim card in the phone and see if you get a T-mobile signal. You can also check the unlock status of your iPhone by going to http://www.imei.info. You will need to sign up for a free account but once you do, you will be able to verify whether the device is unlocked or not. Hope this helps.
