Deal Details

Last Edited by widgit April 6, 2012 at 02:19 PM
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.

Did you fullfill the 2 year term or paid for upgrade or paid early termination?

We've been using one for months (about a year now) without data. I was the one to call-in and tell them that we want all data services barred for that phone.
No need to even call ATT. Just slip in your non-data ATT plan SIM into the 3GS and start using it. Which is what I did when I upgraded to iPhone 4. I gave my 3GS to my wife who is part of our family plan. Make sure you turn of Cellular Data under settings->General->Network.

Are you the original owner of the phone? If they don't care about that, I think I can unlock the iphone bestbuy refurbished from cowboom the other day.

Why would AT&T allow phones to be unlocked. Won't they lose business by having people move their unlocked phones to other service providers? When the phone is locked, the customer is stuck with AT&T. What am I missing?

Now, two days later everyone is reporting that it's official and suddenly it's all happy kisses?

Hope everyone from the original thread is willing to eat crow and admit they were wrong. Wink

My friend did that and got a bill of $281. It happened 2 months go. In Dallas, TX.
Dont know how it happened. But she confirmed that she's never used any data and did turn data network off.
