Confirmed – AT&T now unlocking eligible(off-contract) iPhones
A few days ago, we posted about a rumor that quickly circulated regarding AT&Ts iPhone policies. Until now, there has been no way to get your iPhone officially unlocked if it was tied to a carrier, in the US at least. We can now confirm that the rumor is true. Provided you have an AT&T locked iPhone that is not on contract anymore and is in good standing, you can now call AT&T to have your iPhone officially unlocked for use on any supported GSM carrier. This means that the contract you originally signed to get the phone must have already expired and the phone cannot be blacklisted.
If your iPhone meets these requirements, you can simply call AT&T(611 if you call from your iPhone) and have them unlock the phone for you. This service is free, all you have to do is provide them with your IMEI number and it will take them a few days to verify that your phone qualifies and then they will send you the instructions on how to finalize the unlock.
If you have called and successfully gotten your iPhone unlocked, please report back in the comments section below!
