AT&T has announced that, starting tomorrow, April 8, it will offer unlock codes to Apple iPhone owners who have satisfied their contracts and have accounts in good standing.
AT&T customers that meet the criteria will be able to call the carrier to request an unlock code for their iPhones. Once they receive an unlock code, users will be able to utilize SIM or micro-SIM cards from any carrier and use their iPhones on networks other than AT&T's, provided that network has the right frequency support, of course.
The carrier's statement on the new policy is below:
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.
