Hello Europa,Just make sure it says AT&T and iPhone 5. Most work with 3G through the 5.
I used this method to unlock my iPhone 5 and 4S.
Those look a little pricy compared to the ones on eBay, but that will work and it's really not that much money either way. Since your phone is stock, just do a restore after they notify you that the unlock has gone through and that will apply it. You'll see this message in iTunes afterwards. It indicates that it's a permanent unlock opposed to a software or SIM unlock.Hello Europa,
I just did mine at jailbreakhome.com a while ago. I wasn't able to read your comment as soon as possible. I'm waiting for my phone to get unlock.
I posted the link for the purpose of VERIFYING and existing unlock, not purchasing an unlock. Privately unlocking was cheap and easy in 2012, but they changed the law in January 2013. It's not legal anymore so the vendors pretty much disappeared. The advertised unlocks you'll find online now are scams. You'll need to go through AT&T if you want to unlock your phone. They will unlock it once your contract is fulfilled.Europa, is that link ligit? I'm going to order an unlock for my 5s ATT if its a ligit site. I've already been taken by another site that was fake.
They'll unlock it after you pay the ETF. If you're switching carriers just a few months after getting a subsidized phone, you're going to have to pay AT&T a steep ETF (nearly $300).So if I bought an iPhone 5s few months ago and want to leave ATT I'm basically SOL... I guess its going on ebay.
