, but is there a reliable way to unlock an iPhone 4 myself without waiting for AT&T to respond? Although it is an AT&T phone, it has been a few years since we've been AT&T customers, so the PIN I entered in the form may not be correct, and this is a time-sensitive matter.
My wife's phone is an AT&T iPhone 4. We left AT&T for Straight Talk. It's an AT&T reseller, so there was no need to unlock, and I forgot all about that. We just ended our Straight Talk service and are now on T-Mobile prepaid, but I just realized the phone needs to be unlocked for that to work. So, she's without cell service.
I filled out AT&T's unlock form, but I have no idea if the PIN I gave them is right. This post
says that AT&T often fulfills these requests in under an hour, but I still haven't heard anything. I tried calling their customer service number, but the system hangs up on me after I give them a phone number that's not currently an AT&T number and after I just keep hitting 0.
So, if I can do this without waiting "7 business days" as their request status checker asks me to do, I would like to. I remember the varioous *sn0ws, but those are for jailbreaking, and we'd like to alter the phone as little as possible. Just the unlock, if possible.
