    How to check if iphone unlocked with no sim

    Hi,

    I called telus they did the unlock when i plugged into itunes it asked me to update software and backup my phone i said ok and it erased and restored everything after the new Os was installed.

    How do i check if the iphone got unlocked without another carriers sim card as i dont have access to one and nothing came up on itunes saying iphone is unlocked?

    thanks!

    Just from my experience, you won't know if it's truly unlocked until your try a sim card from a different carrier.

    type in your IMEI and it'll say unlocked at the bottom.


    it asks for donation through paypal, but that's up to you if you wanna donate. it's a great tool.

    Don't know how it does it. but i don't think it hacked it.

    It's probably available for developers and carriers to access.

    i've tested it with several iphones i've owned.

    As with brand new in box, never activated iphones, it doesn't show it's status. Try it yourself and see.

    Maybe they just did some network sniffing on the packets that itunes sends back and forth with the apple server when your phone checks it's status through itunes and they emulate that.

    So they get the unlocked status directly from the apple server that way.

    Always thought it would be an interesting way to unlock the iphone would be to trick itunes into thinking it's talking to the real apple server and send it back the unlocked status. But I'm guessing there is some kind of decryption codes the server has to send back that are unique to the phone and very difficult to reverse engineer.

And a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. Yes, it's finally time to get a wireless phone.

    I tried the dev.mk with my iPhone 4S and it told me it was locked with a link to a site that charges to unlock. I KNOW FOR CERTAIN THAT MY PHONE IS UNLOCKED. I bought it directly from an Apple store and I've used the phone on several different networks in a couple of countries. My conclusion is to treat the results from dev.mk very cautiously!
