I called Telus to get them to unlock my phone. How long does it take for me to receive confirmation that it is now unlocked? Do they send it as a text or email confirmation?

My phone gave no indication of being unlocked until I inserted a new SIM - then I went through the regular setup as a new phone.
In order to complete the unlock you will need to restore your iPhone in iTunes. You should receive the following message within iTunes after the restore: "Unlock Complete. Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked. To set up and sync this iPhone, click Continue."

The SIM won't affect the apps on the phone. SIM cards only have storage capacities measured in kilobytes. Apps are in the megabyte > gigabyte range.
