    I have and iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS and iPhone 4 all locked to AT&T. I have been gone from AT&T since the day Verizon got iPhone. I never had a contract with AT&T so I am wondering if that means they will just unlock my phones for me.

    Alternatively... I have bought several iPhone for testing off ebay... will they unlock these too. There are so many variables I want to know how they will be handling that? Guess next week a call to AT&T to see what they think.

    Ha'... I'll never buy another Carrier branded phone again and that includes the iPhone as well! I'll stick with my unlocked penta-band Nokia (N9, N8, & E6) phones. These phones aren't detected in AT&T's system which allows me to use the $10 dollar unlimited data dumbphone plan! I go well over 10GB a month, unthrottled going H.A.M with the mobile Wi-Fi hotspot. I currently use my iPhone as an iPod Touch now.

    It still leaves you waiting about two years for any new model unless you want to pay Apple's unlocked price.

    It definitely won't affect your jailbreak, I've unlocked all of my iPhones (3g, 3gs, 4 & 4s through my carrier via iTunes (I'm in the uk) and it has never affected my jailbreak in any way, just make the request, wait upto 48 hours to receive a confirmation text message then connect your phone to iTunes and the "congratulations your iPhone is now unlocked" message appears and that is all there is to it, you're then free to update firmware as and when it's available without having to preserve your baseband etc

    For now...they'll catch on. I mean, you're using 10GB a month?! Haha, you're lucky you haven't been caught yet! I guess live it up...

    But, no form of data package (especially a bootlegged shady method) could compel me to use a Nokia for anything other than a toy hammer for my 3 year old daughter.

    Yeah but is there a limitation on which baseband's can be unlocked? If not, can an employee leak the unlock to us?

    baseband doesnt matter with official unlocks, and there would be nothing to leak to you. It is not something that gets installed on your phone.

    I bought my iPhone 4 on contract on launch day and the day that iOS 5.0 went public Apple replaced my iPhone 4. So does this mean they will unlock it because my current is not the one I signed the contract for. I am eligible for a new phone if that matters.

    EDIT: even better, the dev team members working on unlocks can finally take a rest.
    I thought they stopped working on ultrasnow software unlock post baseband 00.01.59 unlock since then It merely has been upgraded to support newer iOS firmwares.but no supports for newer basebands. Upgrading your firmwares while preserving the BB has always been a pain

    So, I'm Actually talking to AT&T right now, and i showed them this site and 9to5mac. And they are "Looking Into It" and I'm On Hold..
    Sorry, I DOnt Have Patience For This... LoL.

    **Ill Update as i go...


    EDIT: There Saying They Can't Unlock It Because Its A "No Commitment Phone" And I'm Telling the guy on the other side that its NO COMMITMENT, meaning i paid full price for it and AT&T did not lose any money and it should not matter to them. I do NOT have a subsidized phone which at&T gave me a cheaper price for contract....


    He Is Still Going On About Contract iPhone & Talking To Contract Support (Or Something Like That..)
