I recently requested a NUC from Vodafone for my iPhone 3GS. This morning I received an e-mail stating that it had been unlocked and that I was to insert a different carrier's SIM card or do a software restore in order to complete the unlocking process.
I've connected to iTunes and done a restore with my existing Vodafone SIM inserted, but haven't had any message in iTunes saying "Congratulations, your iPhone is now unlocked" which I'm lead to believe I should see.
I could try with another SIM card but I'm concerned that the phone will lock to the new SIM carrier or something. Is someone able to verify that when the unit is unlocked, I can chop and change SIM cards as I please and the phone will never relock itself? I want to ensure the phone is unlocked but continue using my Vodafone SIM for the time being.

Once the unit is unlocked you can chop and change sim cards without the phone relocking to any network
Have you tried using a differtent network sim as per the instructions?.

My o2 3GS has been unlocked since November 09, it has been through restores, hot swapping of sims, 'jailbreaking' and quite a lot for the poor phone. Once you get the official message that is it.
