    I would ask the company that did the unlock what they meant by "Semi Blocked". It is not a term frequently used on this forum.

    I'm guessing that means the GSM side is unlocked for international use, but domestic GSM carriers are blocked. They intend for you to be able to use pre-paid SIM cards when you travel overseas but not use it domestically on any carrier but the one from which you bought the iPhone.

    AT&T iPhones are unlocked for all carriers once the unlock is performed. Many CDMA carriers with iPhones 4S and higher may use a dual unlocking procedure.

    Connect your phone to iTunes and try restoring.

    When I do a restore of my unlocked AT&T iPhone 5 through iTunes, I get a "Congratulations your iPhone is unlocked" message from iTunes.
