Majority of the iphones that can be unlock are iphone 3gs and a few iphone 4.
Between about July 1st and Dec 31st millions on iPhone 4 handsets will drop off the 2 year contract.
AT&T risked losing those customers with an unlock issue to the competition.
Even AT&T was not foolish enough to risk watching customers jump ship for an unlock friendly competitor..
It didn't happen with the iPhone 3 and 3GS because AT&T still had the exclusive.
As soon as Sprint and Verizon got the iPhone AT&T's unlock policy had to change.
