Sim unlock prompts only show up when another carriers simcard is inserted, is there another way or terminal command?

I have the unlock code, but only have my AT&T sim. I was wondering if there was another way to simunlock the phone besides the tradtional method.

Not a problem, just mostly a question.

Is the only way to SIM unlock a phone the traditional way of "I must insert another carriers SIM"?

Is there a particular app that I can manually run or a terminal command I can enter that would ask for the code?

I don't have another simcard so that's why I'm curious

If your phone is AT&T and so is your sim card. You are not going to get the unlock prompt. Buy yourself a PAYG sim card,( not ATT&T ).. they are cheap and might even come free.. Insert it into your phone and enter the unlock code.
