Try this, it may work. Tap Settings App > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. See if this works. If not try, Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. These will keep you at iOS 5, hopefully also get the Unlock to work.

i get that... im asking can a phone be unlocked without Backing Up, Erased, and restored... because thats what happened, its seems unlocked(stuck another sim card in it and it calls) but is it really unlocked since i didnt follow those steps??

The phone must be restore with the latest update for the unlock to take from the Apple database.
It sounds like your phone was software unlocked / hacked before you requested the official unlock.
You can leave it as it or try to update to 6.0 from 4.1. But if it was hacked before you risk the phone bricking during the update.

phone was standard OEM, no jailbreak or hacked.
Im gonna guess since its on a very old iOS, that may be why. I guess if it doesnt work overseas, ill just have them restore it themselves...

IME you must restore to factory. I Tunes will then display "Congratulations your phone is unlocked"
Straight Talk sims will not be locked out by an AT&T phone but you can not get to the "Carrier" settings to setup the APN for messaging until the phone is unlocked.
