How to officially unlock AT&T iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G

AT&T now provides a way to unlock AT&T branded iPhones for free. There are several ways to do so such as calling AT&T customer care, emailing AT&T customer service. But I found the method below is most convenient to do so.

  • Find out the imei of the iphone in General -> Settings -> About.
  • Go to the AT&T link and fill out the unlock request form. You do not necessarily need to be AT&T customer. unless you are current or previous customer of AT&T, you will need to email AT&T a copy of the purchase receipt.
  • AT&T will email you instructions to unlock the form in several days.
  • Check the lock status of the iPhone here or here to verify that the phone is unlocked.

Sometimes AT&T will send you an email indicating the phone cannot be unlocked, it is because that the iphone may have been reported lost or stolen. AT&T no longer requires the contract commitments on the phone to be fulfilled, however. 

Were you able to unlock your phone successfully? Please leave a comment about your experience.


  1. I am using the I-phone 3g....I have unlocked it from AT&T Network lock USA...But i haven't contacted the service provider to get the unlock service..I got the remote unlock service from the site www.superunlockcodes.com and unlocked from AT&T network lock USA...Because i have contacted the service provider to get the unlock service..They asked me to wait for many days .So i have unlocked it using the remote unlock service very soon.

  2. This did not work for me. I decided that rather than waiting for AT&T, I would spend a little money and purchase the unlock tool from http://iphoneunlockgroup.com. It was only $29, and it worked like a charm.
