AT&T to Begin Unlocking Off-Contract iPhones This Sunday, April 8th | Engadget

We’ve just received word of a spicy strategy change, to be enacted this Sunday, thats sure to please the AT&T iPhone-loving masses. On Easter, select Ma Bell customers with iPhones — those off-contract with accounts in good standing — will be able to request a carrier unlock for their device. Once freed, any micro-SIM can be used — provided its carriers frequencies are supported — by the smartphone. An AT&T spokesperson was able to confirm that “a policy change concerning iPhones” would indeed be rolled-out on Sunday, but declined to elaborate further. That sound you hear? International Love, being quietly spun from the corner office of Ralph de la Vega.

[Thanks, John Crawford]

Heres AT&Ts official statement on the matter:

Beginning Sunday, April 8, we will offer qualifying customers the ability to unlock their AT&T iPhones. The only requirements are that a customers 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.
