Since they have already unlocked one of my off contract iPhones, there's no reason not to believe this article.

 

No more whining about people posting unlock questions.

again not going to benefit the majority of people looking for a unlock

 

 

Not going to help those that purchase the phone off of fleabay or craiglist


How do you know this?  Do you have some secret insight to the number of ebay vs. AT&T sourced phones owned by people asking for an unlock?

 

Of course, there are a lot of AT&T phones out there that were sold on e-bay after contract expiration,  however for the iPhone 4 unless the owner paid the ETF,   none of them are off contract yet.

 

What will be interesting is how AT&T defines a contract in "good standing".  What if there was a missed payment, what if the person suspended service for xx months, what if, what if.

 

I will submit my still on contract phones for unlocking the moment they qualify.
