Probably not a deal but 9to5Mac just reported that AT&T will start unlocking iPhone in good standing. Here is the statement on 9to5Mac [9to5mac.com]

“Beginning Sunday, April 8, we will offer qualifying customers the ability to unlock their AT&T iPhones. The only requirements are that a customer’s account must be in good standing, their device cannot be associated with a current and active term commitment on an AT&T customer account, and they need to have fulfilled their contract term, upgraded under one of our upgrade policies or paid an early termination fee.”

Apparently it's due to the many complaints that Tim Cook's office received from AT&T customers. I would like to think that the SD community has a lot to do with that.

If it's true, this is awesome news. Over the years AT&T had always unlocked my phones both during and after contract. The biggest reason being travel overseas. But iPhone was never part of that offering. My family has 4 iPhones that have fulfilled their contract. Would be sweet if they unlock all of them. We shall see.

hm so if I buy a smartphone thats locked to att on ebay and can get unlocked as unlocked are more costlier than att version phones?, thanks in advance

I just got iphone 3gs from my friend who upgraded his to 4s.
I am using 3gs as I touch now.
My question is can my friend put his sim card back into this 3gs and call to unlock .
Once unlocked can he put his sim card back to his new phone and I get an unlocked phone
Thanks

YES! I've been waiting for this.

It's not easy to be a royal Tmobile customer nowadays.

I have a 3Gs that I got in June 2010? Does this apply to my phone? I'm out of contract with ATT. Also, what does this mean that I can unlock it? Is there anything additional that I can do with this phone??

Didn't the 4s just come out last fall? How can it be out of contract?

i think those can be unlocked via software and the unlock might worth more to unlock a 4 instead

I hope this is just a joke.
Those dumb AT&T Apple fanboys should get what they deserved.

AT&T will only unlock it for their customers? I got an AT&T iPhone 4s from Cowboom and I'm using it on Straight Talk. I wonder if AT&T will unlock it if I call?
