I have a iphone 4 with at&t. The 2 year contract has expired and I need to unlock the phone before travelling out of USA next weekend.


I submitted online request in at&t for unlock and have received a mail from at&t, to wait for 24 hours and then unlock the phone.


The url in the mail mentions backup and restoring the iphone for unlock.


I have a question regarding that process and need your validation and help -


1. First I connect to computer and take a backup of my iphone using iTunes

2. Next I restore from backup using iTunes


Does this unlock my phone?


Do I need to delete all content from my phone after backup and then do the restore from backup?


Please let me know if I am missing anything.

Thanks in advance.

iPhone 4, iOS 6.1.3
