I purchased a iPhone 4s (AT&T) from ebay to be used in Iceland, the seller said it was factory unlocked. But when i inserted my Vodafone sim card it said 'Sim not valid -the sim card that you currently have installed in this iphone is from a carrier that is not supported. I contacted the seller, who was kind enough to give me their Itunes log in details and also a email by At&T about the process of how to unlock.
Want to unlock your iPhone? Here's how to do it on a iPhone with or without a SIM card.
Open iTunes on your Mac or PC and verify that you have Internet connectivity. Ensure the SIM card that came with this device is inserted in your iPhone.
(The problem is I do not have a AT&T sim and the seller disposed the original sim) 3. Connect your iPhone using the dock connector to USB cable that came with your iPhone. Backup and restore your iPhone using iTunes. How Do I Unlock A Network Locked Phone. Sony Vegas 10 Crack Keygen. For information on backup and restore, please visit.
After restoring, your iPhone will be unlocked. I tried with my vodafone sim & a AT&T inactive sim but it did not work. I did a restore from backup aswell as ' as new I spoke to AT&T they where very nice & checked the IMEI & service number. But they couldnt do anything more. And told me to speak to the seller of the phone Is there a solution to this problem without sending the phone back. Can the seller contact AT&T and get them to do anything.

Hi All, This is what i did to unlock my iPhone 4s 1. I contacted my seller to give me the request number for the unlock request.
I downloaded skype and called AT&T 1800 number for free 3. I went trough their phone menu to speak to a customer support agent 4. I spoke to the customer support agent explaining that A) I purchased the phone on ebay and the seller said it was factory unlocked but it shows locked.
B) I am in Iceland & I don't have a At&T account or a sim to unlock it. She asked for the IMEI and the Request number & she asked me to give her a few minutes. She said it will not be a problem using my non AT&T sim & to check in 24hrs if my phone is unlocked. I was afraid to check. Since i was doubtful if it is so simple & if it will work.so i tried my phone after 2 days.and VIOLA. My heart skiped a beat when it said Vodafone on my screen.
