Today AT&T announced that starting Sunday will unlock off contract iPhones in response to complaints from Apple and iPhone users. This is great if you want to go to T-Mobile or are going to be leaving the country and don’t want to pay AT&T’s high international costs. Here is the official statement (via 9to5mac)
“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.”
So there you have it.
