Yes, turned it off and back on. Reset. Take the sim card out again, put it back in, turned it on. So many times, and still gave me the same issue. Tried it again the next day...still the same...

I only did A and was able to use a FreedomPOP SIM in my iPhone 6s. I did not need to erase.
FYI, I believe doing choice B should get still you a message in iTunes that it's unlocked at some point in the process.
