You cannot unlock a US GSM iPhone - it is locked to AT&T even if bought without contract.

 

There is no way to unlock it via Apple or AT&T. You are free to explore unofficial options for unlocking the device, but no one here will help with that, and it is probably far better to sell it and get the correct version for your country.

 

The correct way to do this is to purchase your phone from your region's sales partners/carriers or Apple Turkey, Apple won't even provide support for a US iPhone in Turkey.

 

Find a local provider here http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1937

 

This comes up often - apparently no one understands the difference between "no contract" and "unlocked"

 

No iPhones are sold in the US unlocked. They are only sold with or without a contract.
