    Out of contract phones will ALWAYS be unlockable by your Carrier for FREE. Just call them. You should never pay for an unlock service for older phones out of contract. You're being ripped off if you pay for it. Just a simple call to your carrier.. Immediate free unlock over the phone.

    This not true.. I've had several unlocked by att for free -purchased from eBay. They can check if the account of the previous owner was in good standing prior to being sold.

    Hmm, that's quite interesting.

    From my experience, ATT did not allow an unlock request to go through because the phone that I purchased off craigslist, which was indeed verified to be off contract, was not tied to my account, therefore they denied my request.

    Maybe they were pretty loose until that whole 3rd party unlocking fiasco was unleashed.

    Yes EVO- that could be the case .. They have started tightening up.. But most people trying to unlock older phones are people who still own them (original owners) who think they have to pay for unlocking. The 3rd party unlockers don't let people know they can get it for free.. Obviously.. I just don't want people to get swindled.

    I've unlocked 2 out of contract iPhones from Craigslist last month. I believe you can request 5 unlocks a year if your in good standing :-)

    Yes, I called ATT the other day after reading things here and they told me same thing. 5 a year, out of contract. I asked if I needed to be original owner and they said no...

    So seems like we're getting different answers from different reps.. Damn AT&T.

    I never understood the context of this discussion to be about "not being a customer". Many people who still use 3rd party unlock services to unlock older out of contract phones are ATT customers trying to unlock other ATT phones purchased on Craig's List or eBay for their family members use or for resale again. Getting a free unlock for these IS possible according to ATT,

    If you are NOT a customer with ATT yourself - then I agree - this would not be possible and your only choice is a 3rd party unlock service - even for phones out of contract.

    Can someone please help me? I’m stuck on the activation screen in my iphone and it keeps asking me to enter the Apple ID of the previous owner… I bought this iphone second handed but the previous owner forgot to disable Find My iPhone and he doesn’t know the Apple ID either, he gave me this website to let it unlock Apple iPhone iCloud & Carrier Unlock - Free iPhone Unlocks is this even legit? :S Someone ever tried this website?
