24 hours ago I called customer service and requested my iphone 5 be unlocked (monthly plan). I was told to wait half an hour, then back up and restore my phone in itunes. Waited an hour and did this. I expected to receive notification that the phone is unlocked, but have not. Just spent 20 minutes waiting for customer service, then was cut off. Any suggestions? Thanks.

You won't really receive a notification that the phone's unlocked. The only real way to test it would be to insert another provider's SIM card to try it out.

yep it should be unlocked. Try popping in a different network's sim just to be sure.

Once the unlock process was initiated, there should have been a support link given to you to write down in the event the unlock wasn't working.
