Frankly you should be able to use your phone on whatever compatible carrier you want after the contract is up.

In the real world that's not how it works.

This form makes AT&T customer service rep's lives a whole lot easier. "Go online, I said go online, no, I will not unlock the iphone you "found" on the back of a truck in Hong Kong."

Think of the money AT&T could make if they charged for the service.

Even if you don't meet AT&T's requirements to unlock your iPhone, it can still be done with UnlockStreak activations for iTunes, which turns it into iPhone unlock software. That type of unlock is permanent like the one from AT&T.

I've tried this now working any more. You need to have valid AT&T customers accound and SSN (which is only for US customers) but you can still unlock any AT&T device by using the besthttp://digitalunlocking.net/ source
