I did this last week on my wife's phone as well as mine. My contract doesn't end til the 24th hers doesnt end til mid October. The lady I talked to at customer service was more than informative on this subject. After restoring an the phone booted I got " congratulations your phone is unlocked" message in iTunes.

I have another question too, it says the account needs to be in good standings, but does that mean it have to have 0 balance or can it have the regular monthly balance but before the due date?

Most networks in the uk will unlock a iPhone no mater how long contract has for a fee norm £10-£15! And u can make that back a couple of times over when selling it! Lol

Why are you restoring? Just use redsn0w's "Deactivate" option and your unlock will go through and you don't need to do anything else - your iPhone and jailbreak remain intact. I just had this done to my iPhone 4 the day my 2-year contract was up, last month. Worked like a charm.

Does this unlock require a restore? Will it work on an iPhone 4S that is currently jailbroken (without restoring it)?

How long did you guys have to wait for a response that it was unlocked?

I got mine this morning and I requested it Friday. I used the redsnow deactivate and it worked great.

Anyone able to help me out as i don't have an AT&T account.

let me give a shot to request the unlock for my 2 phones

OK, while waiting for my response from AT&T, I dl'd Redsnow for Mac. Seems to be the correct version for an i4. Opened it, but see no way to "deactivate." (I jailbroke using Greenpoison when it was released.) Can someone lay out the process to do this without a restore or a sim from a different company? Step by step?

Well...I decided to give this a shot for my 64GB ip4S. We'll see what happens!
I also want to do this for my wife's phone when she gets home, even though I bought her a 16GB ip4S from someone on Craigslist several months ago.

I didn't have to wait for her to get home!
I opened an Info.plist file from a Backup of her phone to find the IMEI # and submitted the request a few minutes ago!

mr117 it should be under more features and extras or something. =D

Well, after more checking (thanks for the link) it looks like A, I would need to actually run Redsnow in jailbreak mode to access that setting (Jailbreak>deactivate) and B, the newest Redsnow is ONLY for the i4S. Since my phone is already jailbroken under Greenpoison, AND it is an i4, looks like a restore is in my future, followed by putting everything back on it afterwards. Couple or three hours and it should be fine.
