Softbank/au Japan should do this too. Foreigner who used iPhone but have to go back to his home country cannot do anything but to sell the gadget at the lowest price.

i wonder if AT&T will have an option to charge you to unlock in any event your not out of your 2yr contract? that what other carriers do. so does also mean that AT&T will unlock fro FREE all my older iphones if they have expired 2yr contracts?

I'm still leaving AT&T the day I get my iPhone 5 on Verizon. If I'm getting throttled, I'm going to at least going to have good service. Ha, I called some idiot AT&T manager out in front of a PACKED store over that. I told him in no uncertain terms that advertising HSDPA+ networks as 4G was a blatant lie. I proceed to test the speed in front of him. Less than 1 mile from an HSDPA+ tower in San Antonio Texas, I pulled 6.8 MBps, or less than 1/2 of the advertise 14.4Mbps, which is less than 1/4 of the un-lobbied 4G speed of 100Mbps. So, if by 4G they really mean 1/8th the speed of 4G, then ok, but I want an asterisk! He was happy when I left, so he could go play smart guy with soccer moms and old people.

--OT: This is wonderful news for all the AT&T iPhone owners in the US (and overseas) who now can have officially unlocked iPhones. It's a shame that it took five years to do this, but I guess late is better than never, right? Now if only the Japanese carriers would join the fun... but I digress.
If you do not owe AT&T any money, and one of the following applies to you:
1) paid an early termination fee on your iPhone's line of service (or otherwise cancelled your contract early without violating the terms);
2) purchased your iPhone off-contract AND it's not tied to an AT&T contract that still has service time remaining;
3) served twenty-four months on an iPhone purchased on contract (or otherwise having no contractual obligation to remain with AT&T);
4) Upgraded from your iPhone, placing another phone on the line of service;
then AT&T should unlock an iPhone upon request. I'd guess it'll take a phone call to AT&T Customer Care, but that phone call should be worth it.

But what will AT&T get out of it besides a one time rate to unlock it. Can A
But what will AT&T get out of it besides a one time rate to unlock it. Can AT&T charge a monthly rate to keep a iPhone unlocked?

why would you want ATT to unlocked an already unlocked iphone? or are you asking about another iphone?[/QUOTE]
My phone is locked to AT&T but its NOT a contract for 2 years I bought it a few months before apple start the sale of unlocked phones so it's a locked iPhone 4 with no 2 years plan

I could be wrong but didn't the iPhone 4 come out in June 2010? So most people with an iPhone 4 that renewed their 2 year contract to get the phone will still have to wait till June, right?

But then the people in store won't know how to do it ... blah blah blah, They can barley install a screen protector

The best part? No more having to protect the baseband!
EDIT: even better, the dev team members working on unlocks can finally take a rest.

I have called at&t to find out about this, but C/S has no knowledge. I know its a two days early but im sure they would know something right?

Its about ******* time. This crap with being locked to ATT was illegal as far as I am concerned.
