I updated my still under contract AT&T iPhone 4S to iOS 6.1.2 and when it completed the process iTunes popped up a message saying, congratulations your phone is unlocked.  This was not the message I was expecting but it got me thinking, why would I get this message unless iTunes unlocked my phone.


I don't have any other sim cards to test this with.  Is there a way to tell if it is unlocked or not without using another carrier's sim card?


I have tried to get AT&T to unlock it for me in the past when I went out of the country and they refused because it was under contract.  So I just barely used my phone and only did email, texts, etc on WiFi in the hotel.
