Unlocking iPhone

I called to unlock my iPhone 4s. I have been told that I only need to connect my iPhone to iTunes and it will be unlocked, but it's not. Do I have to do something else? Unlock PIN? Command something on iTunes? Can I check in any way if it is unlocked?

You have to factory reset your iPhone via iTunes to complete the unlock. Remember to back it up first, because this will delete all personal data.
Ok, I'll do that, thanks. How do I know it is unlocked without inserting another carrier SIM card? Can I see it on iTunes or on my phone?

Hi Jean Nicholas, you will need to try another SIM card to check if the phone got unlocked successfully or not. Thank you!

Isn't there any online IMEI checker to see if phone is unlocked?
