iPhone 5s unlocked ?

I've been through the unlocking procedure, but how do I verify that it is actually unlocked?

@NightRail    If you’ve been told it’s now unlocked all you need to do is put a different network Sim card in the device O2 or Vodafone are the best SIM cards to use to process the unlock on the device.

Because i'm still using it on EE I had to do a full reset, as per instructions. My contract has 3 more months to run, I was just being prepared early. But I don,t know how to verify it is actually unlocked.

@NightRail  Put a different network SIM card in n the device.  You have to do this to complete the unlock process.  Use a o2 or voda SIM card as 3 SIM cards can sometimes not work when doing this.

Hi @NightRail

 

You can pick up another network SIM card from the £1 shop to give it a quick test.
