AT&T has announced that it will unlock off contract iPhones starting on Sunday, April 8th, reports Engadget.

Here AT&T's statement:

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.

This is excellent news for the many U.S. customers with locked iPhones. Perhaps emails like this to Tim Cook prompted the change in policy.

Very good information . It will definitely help AT&T customers to unlock their iPhone 4 and to switch to other networks . After reading the entire article I Submitted a request to AT&T to unlock my iPhone 4 . But ,they rejected my request saying I need to wait until my contract is Over which is two years . So,I searched many sites and found Remote Unlock Service to unlock iPhone 4 for reasonable price in MobileUnlockSolutions.com . I got the service and unlocked my iPhone 4 . They also provide Remote Unlock Service for other models of iPhones(GSM) like iPhone,iPhone 3G,iPhone 3GS,iPhone 4S,iPhone 5.

Got my iPhone 4 unlocked. Process was very simple. Called ATT - gave them my IMEI no - waited for the instructions in the email. Once I got that in a couple hours time, I plugged my phone in - started iTunes - Transfer purchases - Backup - Restore from Backup - and VOILA - your iPhone has been unlocked. I am currently on iOS 5.0.1, firmware 4.10.01.

I brought an I4 without contract in 2010. I just call att and Customer Service Guy told me that I have to call Apple Customer Service to get my iPhone unlock.. That's the normal procedure????

I called them a few minutes ago and, after telling my IMEI, was told to wait 5-7 days for the unlock instructions via email. Crossing fingers now.
