Ihr iPhone wurde erfolgreich entsperrt.

After a phone call to my former carrier, where I had to tell my IMEI number, and some days of waiting, I finally received the official Apple unlock for my iPhone:

Unlock Complete

Some remarks:

  • I had to restore my firmware to one which doesn’t remove the need for activation; only then iTunes showed me the above screen (PwnageTool option legit iPhone – valid contract).
  • The unlock works and any SIM card can be used. The carrier logo is missing, however. Ultrasn0w fixed this for me.
  • To find out if your carrier allows unlocking after the end of the contract, visit Apples support page Locating iPhone wireless carriers and locate the Carrier offers authorized unlocking column.
