AT&T Plans To Start Unlocking Off Contract iPhones Starting This Sunday

Unlocking your iPhone can be a pain in the “you know what.”  Unless you plan on paying $600 for a factory unlocked device, you could be forced to Jailbreak or purchase a third party SIM mod to be able to use your iPhone on multiple carriers.

Fortunately it looks like that could all change starting this Sunday for AT&T customers. According to Engadget a little bird has told them that AT&T will start unlocking iPhone’s starting April 8th.

“We’ve just received word of a spicy strategy change, to be enacted this Sunday, that’s sure to please the AT&T iPhone-loving masses. On Easter, select Ma’ Bell customers with iPhones–those off-contract with accounts in good standing–will be able to request a carrier unlock for their device.”

This should work out great for travelers who want to take their iPhone’s abroad with them. Once the handset is unlocked, it will be able to be used with any compatible GSM carrier around the world.

While AT&T hasn’t officially announced the new option, Engadget says they spoke to a spokeswoman for the company and she confirmed that the carrier plans implement the new policy change this weekend. Pretty cool.

    Do you think people outside the US with a AT&T jailbroken iPhone (to preserve baseband) would be able to unlock their phones too?

    There hasn’t been any official word on that yet, but I highly doubt it. AT&T looks down upon people who jailbreak their phones it’s a shame but that’s how it is. To be honest I’m completely shocked that they’re actually doing this. AT&T wants you to buy a phone from them which is why it’s surprising that they’re starting to do this. But either way I’m not sure about international users. I think they’re just unlocking phone so that people can use them on AT&T
