AT&T to Unlock Off-Contract iPhones
AT&T today announced that it will unlock iPhones that are no longer associated with an AT&T contract. In email to Phone Scoop, AT&T spokesperson Seth Bloom wrote, "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." AT&T has kept Apple's iPhone locked to its network since the device first went on sale in 2007. This is a significant change in policy for the company. It will allow those who own old iPhones to use them on other networks without the need to jailbreak them.

Am I wrong?
I feel like this
I used to be AT&T
explanation on their policy blah blah my trying to explain what I read in this article gets met with met with a mixture of ignorance and attitude. I don't want to fight with At&T CS anymore.
There is a problem from what I am understanding about this article and what AT&T customer service reps are being told.
Kinda knew it was too good to be true. Any AT&T reps out there that know what they are doing, could you please email me? I need to speak to someone with intelligence, I know there are one or two of you out there. email@example.com
