I have completed my AT&T contract and was instructed to go to iTunes for instructions on how to unlock the phone, but am not finding what I need.  Any advice would be most useful.  Thanks!

    Completing the contract does not auto-magically unlock the device.

    Did you actually request the unlock from AT&T?  IF not, contact them and request the device be unlocked.

     

    Once they approve the unlock, follow the instructions they provide you to complete the unlock process.

    You must contact ATT and have them authorize (approve) the unlock. They will verify that you are elgible for an unlock, and ATT will go over all the steps with you. Then after all that with ATT you just Restore your iPhone, at the end iTunes will give you a large message on your computer screen that the iPhone is Unlocked. Done.
