??? "AT&T currently will unlock a device for any customer whose account has been active for at least sixty days; whose account is in good standing and has no unpaid balance; and who has fulfilled his or her service agreement commitment." That means as long as they filled there commitments when they got the equipment (smart phone in this case generally). So even though I know AT&T may be viewed negatively on some issues I do not understand how fulfilling a contract you legally and in whole agreed upon with a provider is bad here. I as many others have know for quite some time that the best long term deal is to buy your phone outright from the get go and not do the two year pay off deal, but if that's where you want to be with it, or your finances dictate it so then why is that any service providers fault whether it be ATT, big RED, Sprint, T-Mobile or any of the other providers out there's fault!
I understand the argument if you fulfilled your two years or whatever and then they force you not to unlock it but really rooting a phone is easy these days anyway. Yes I know you run a risk doing it of voiding the warranty! The warranty is not from the provider though it is from the company who makes the equipment! The same issue stands if you OC your equipment though of any type and I would bet a pretty high percentage here have there motherboard timing at 22 or 24 as we speak here at the least if not the memory OC's, the FSB, chip lock removed etc even if just for a small gain that would do no damage Intel or AMD Samsung Apple or whomever made said chip could void your warranty and refuse to replace it right now. The thing is we have the Internet and if they did so they would face some customer outrage and bad pub's probably in a matter of hours so they do not unless it is negligent to a higher point.
