That's all you have to do. As soon as the phone said anything like 'network lock deactivated', it was done.

The code is different for each phone. Getting someone else's code will not help you. You need to contact AT&T for the proper code for your phone.

AT&T will only unlock phones for current or former customers and the phone would have to have been on their account. If not, your phone will not be unlocked.

Re: unlocking my s3

If you know the original owner you have to get them to request the unlock from AT&T . Even though I am a customer in good standing , AT&T would not unlock an Iphone for me that I got on Ebay . Luckily the seller was the original owner , and requested the unlock for me . But up till then AT&T would not unlock it even though it had a good "imei" .
