Hey guys, just got off the phone with ATT and here is what happens.
1. Confirm you're qualified. No existing contract (month to month needs to be), no past due bill.
2. He told me I will recieve an email withint 48 hours telling me how to complete the unlock.
I was on the phone no more than 15 minutes and I did ask about a restore, he said he doesn't see why it'll be required even if it said restore in the instructions. I'll keep you guys posted

MuscleNerd said on Twitter to use Redsn0w's "deactivate" option to avoid restoring and losing jailbreak.

background: dont live in US anymore, cancelled account last june running i4
called ATT a million times to find someone who knew what was going on, internet chat was useless they said they werent instructed how to unlock and to call number,
once spoke to right person the approval process was pretty quick, waiting for PDF now, question is do i HAVE to wait for PDF? like do they not put my unlock into the system until they send off PDF or is it in there now? and if i need JB i guess i need to use custom IPSW, will this still yield unlock code generator?

If I take my 4S to the AT&T store and it's jailbroken/unlocked with gevey Ultra S, will they still let me go through with the unlock process?

Update: waited for an hour to speak to 2nd level support. gave her my imei numbers (1 iphone 4 2 iphone 3g). she checked on the original activation dates then entered the phones into the data base. put in TM SIMs and all unlocked with no issues.

Restore is Apples solution to everything
They are always at war with JB

Called ATT customer service to check if my ip4 that was bought in June 2010 without contract can be unlocked and im quite happy with the response i got. The call is about 25 minutes and i got the confirmation that my phone can be unlocked. The instructions will be sent within 72 hours. Keeping my fingers crossed to get it sooner. by the way I am based in Dubai and just relying on ultrasn0w for unlock... :-)

I had my sister call in for her iphone that I bought for her from Craigslist, and they told her the contract was over in January 2013...... jesus christ.
She's going to try again to see if perhaps she'll get someone nicer.

Wow, this is legit. I sell a bunch of iPhones and someone emailed me with this. So, I decided to call and ask if it is possible. They will do it, no problem. . . . As long as the IMEI is clean.

Hey guys I never been an ATT customer bought my Iphone 4 from ebay, called them on Sunday , said they will send an unlock request and I should get a reply by the 16th. I got an email about an hour ago with the unlock instructions and my phone is unlocked, popped in the tmobile sim and it works. So second hand phones can be unlocked it all depends on the previous owner's standing with ATT imo.

This is kind of like ESNs on Verizon or Sprint but you don't need to be a customer. Just check the IMEI before you buy a iPhone of your choice and call At&t after you buy it.
This is amazing, I never in my life though I would see this day. This does change the iPhone game A LOT!

Can someone tell me which AT&T number they are calling because I just tried calling 1800-331-0500 and this guy told me I have to cell number or account with AT&T and said basically that he couldn't help me. How are other persons getting it done? Am I missing something here?

Worked perfectly for me, Att tried to tell me because my phone was a replacement from Apple it wasn't eligible but they contacted Apple and saw the phone was replaced through AppleCare. I used redsn0w and deactivated it so I wouldn't lose my untethered jailbreak...

72 hours and counting, I'm not sure how others had gotten immediate unlocks, but I am getting nowhere with AT&T, and they confirmed my device meets all of their unlocking requirements...
