STEP 5: It will create a new file, just scroll down at the bottom to see if that is done.

  1. SAM really works. Activated iphone 4 locked to AT&T in Ghana. saved my activation ticket as well. thanks a lot

  2. after restore how to use these ticket files to unlock iphone again? and can i use only one sim or all sim after unlock iphone.

  3. I read an interesting thread about a solution, which could be used, even if you don’t have a saved activation ticket on your iPhone, but with SAM:

    If you got an other unlocked iPhone, same type, same baseband, same patch, then you could install SAM their, save the activation ticket through redsn0w and just backup it to the other, locked, iPhone.

    I’m trying it the whole time, but I don’t get it. Could you maybe find out if this is possible and make an other manual for that? That would save me many money 😀 unfortunately, IMEI unlock for T-Mobile in Germany costs 100 $…
