AT&T To Start Unlocking Off-Contract iPhone Handsets Starting Today
It's a move that'll surely help out traveling iPhone users, but we wish AT&T would take the next step and allow even on-contract users to have their phones unlocked as well -- all phones, not just iPhones. Here's the quote from AT&T:
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.
