I haven't gotten the unlock email but I went ahead and tried to unlocked it and it unlocked.
Here are the steps that works for me if you're not familiar on how to unlock your phone via IMEI code. Warning that you may not have all your settings restored as with all restore methods via iTunes.

1. Download and install the newest version of iTunes and have an active SIM card in the phone.
2. Connect the iphone via USB and have iTunes detect your phone.
3. Backup your phone TO YOUR COMPUTER (not to iCloud) via iPhone summary menu on iTunes.
4. Click on Restore iPhone
5. After restoring, you may get a message on iTunes that your iphone have been unlocked

How to find your IMEI number [apple.com] for your iPhone.
You can also get your IMEI by dialling *#06# in the phone app, BUT DON'T CLICK CALL.

Is it really illegal to unlock your phone in the US?? Read the truth here [eff.org].
Basically, it's illegal to get a phone unlocked by anyone other than the carrier.

AT&T's IPhone unlock policy - Request yours to be unlocked here if its out of contract with them - https://www.att.com/deviceunlock/client/en_US/

Goal of 100K signatures reached and this WASN'T a scam!

I doubt that is going to happen. Can't beat a free legitimate unlock!

Looks like the petition isn't going to meet the signature goal. Still 25k needed and only 5 days left. I thought the phone community would be all over this and fulfilled this a long time ago... please sign!!

The great thing about unlocking this way is that AT&T usually requires you to be at end of your 2 year contract before they unlock your phone. If you have an iPhone 5 for instance, you can have it unlocked NOW and still be under contract. This might be helpful if you wanted to leave them for some reason, etc.

How will we know when our phones are unlocked? I just did it. Kind of in the wrong order. Hope that didn't matter. I asked for unlock first, then I signed the petition.
