    Default Unlocking iphone 4

    I talked to a genius about the new unlocked iphone 4. I mentioned the fact that I bought a non commitment iphone a few months back and wanted to know if I can have my iphone unlocked since now apple sells them unlocked.
    Procedure to unlock non commitment iphones.
    1. Update to latest and greatest iTunes
    2. Restore iphone4 (insert sim other than AT&T)
    3. Accept itunes procedure for activation with new sim inserted.
    Enjoy your unlocked iphone 4

    I've tried it with version 4.2.1 didn't work... Unless he wants me to fully update the iPhone aswell as the iTunes. But i ain't risking it so if anyone else tries it and works let me know

    Make sure you bought a "no commitment" iphone, otherwise your iphone via itunes will not be unlocked. You do have to restore your phone with the latest itunes with a different chip and not AT&T.

    This cannot be emphasised more. This can only ever be expected to work if you paid AT&T directly a LOT for your iPhone outright (I don't believe Apple ever offered "no commitment iPhones" locked to AT&T directly, you had to buy them directly from AT&T).

    Latest iTunes I can understand, non AT&T SIM card is also an obvious requirement.
    What I am a bit doubtful about is the need to "restore to latest iOS" or even "restore your iPhone". The brilliant aviegas posted instructions a while back that allow you to trigger a "reactivation" without a restore (and even how to "rollback" if iTunes refused to let you activate for some reason). You must be careful to disable any passcode on your phone first though (otherwise it probably won't work and you WILL have to restore your iPhone to get it working again).

    Yes, Apple offered no commitment iphones at $599 and $699 (16gb and 32gb respectively)
