AT&T Will Unlock Off-Contract iPhones Starting Sunday

According to 9to5Mac AT&T is going start unlocking iPhones for customers who have fulfilled their contracts or paid an early termination fee. That's great news for anyone looking to take a paid-off iPhone to a new carrier.

According to the statement AT&T gave 9to5Mac, this could be your lucky Sunday if you're an out of contract iPhone owner.

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

Apparently, this came about in response to the growing number of complaints Apple has been fielding via Tim Cook's office. I'd say this is a nice move on AT&T's part, but it should have been doing this years ago. [9to5Mac via TheNextWeb]
