Icon14 Free Factory Unlock Code for iPhone 4

I asked apple for a factory unlock for my iphone 4, and they replied:

We have reviewed your request and confirmed that you are eligible to have the requested iPhone unlocked.

Please allow 24 hours upon receipt of this notification to complete the unlock.

To complete the unlock, simply:

Open iTunes on your Mac or PC and verify that you have Internet connectivity.
Ensure a SIM card is inserted into your iPhone.
Connect your iPhone using the dock connector to USB cable that came with your iPhone.
Backup and restore your iPhone using iTunes. For information on backup and restore, please visit iTunes: Restoring iOS software.
After restoring, your iPhone will be unlocked.
Additional information on unlocking can be found at iPhone: About unlocking

You may also check the status of your unlock request by clicking the link for AT&T's Device Unlock Status Portal.

For questions regarding AT&T's wireless service and iPhone, please visit the Phone/Device Learning Center.

We thank you for your continued business.


Sincerely,
AT&T Customer Care Team

Right now I am in the middle of restoring my iPhone 4, once I get it working do I the unlock procedure? Once I factory unlock this, thats it? can up/down grade, and still be unlocked. <-----------How cool is that?

This site, I submitted info to, and they replied by e-mail.

This is what an online imei checker says, not sure what it means

Device IMEI: 01233800239xxxx
Product description: iPhone 4 32GB Black
Telephone technical support: Expired
Warranty(repairs and service coverage): Expired
Activation status: Activated
Is registered: Yes
Sim lock status: Unlocked

I just restored this phone, it has wifi connection but I have NO SERVICE, but the SIM is in the phone, this is a fresh restore, that needs what ever it takes to get it to activate. I had the same issue on my #GS, a re-restore with redsnow, and a jailbreak with redsnow, got it working, having some trouble with the iPhone 4.

My red snow crashes after putting into dfu mode. I will download the program and try again later. The deactivate menu is under jailbreak options, going to take a break and get back to it.

I still have issue, I restored to 5.1.1 and have NO SERVICE

you got to go further more to see it, Resn0w->Jailbreak->with DFU mode-> with jailbreak box already checked, last box is Deactivate, need to be checked.
If you just need it for deactivation only, then only that box is checked, the other are uncheck.
However you can put a non-official sim into ur iPhone, restart it, let it detected new sim, this will then a new activation as well, you must do it with iTune, not over wifi.
( using SAM, or Redsn0w to Deativate your iPhone is for ios 4, iPhone 5.0.1 or higher no needed. )

My baseband (modem firmware) is 04.12.02 I am still not sure what to do next, I do have SAM from Cydia. I know it can't be much left to do, but my lack of experience is holding me back.

I plugged the iPhone 4 into iTunes with straight talk sim chip in it and received this message:

Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked.
To set up and sync this iPhone, click Continue.

I now show the Carrier under general settings as being AT&T, before this it was blank. Now I just have to get the Network under settings to say HOME, and then I am done.

---------- EDIT ----------

All is working fine, SAM did the NO SERVICE and I am back, using the first 5.1.1

I also would like to know that .
ALso got an iphone 4 locked to 3 UK.
Do not think it is going to work for free.


If you live in the Uk and have a UK credit card + Uk adres you can unlock it when you contact 3 UK for 15,32 but since I am not from the uk I cannot do this.
