I'm sure there are other ways around it, but if you're not in any great rush then just get an official unlock - once it's done you'll need an active SIM in the phone and then activate on iTunes. You shouldn't have to pay anything.

Sadly we don't have all the info they want :(

Foolishly ( but after some research) through a "reputable" web site, but have yet to receive any unlock, will give it till the morning, and then call Fnb , and hope the will reverse the transaction

Been trying to unlock an AT&T 3GS for a while. Tried the request via the the AT&T website and got an email requesting a copy of the receipt, which I don't have.

Mind sharing which website you used for the unlock? And how much did it cost?

Thanks

i used http://myimeiunlock.com/

but it wasnt with out some stress, i paid for an instant unlock, and by hour 18, i contacted dalpay ( their payment engine thing) to report possible fraud, shortly there after i got an email from the site saying the unlock was processed, so i may have been a bit inpatient,

It seems they were just a bit backed up, got a email apologizing for the delay in unlocking, site seems to be legit
