AT&T will start unlocking the iPhones of subscribers whose contracts with the mobile carrier have lapsed, new information reveals.
According to 9to5Mac, AT&T will begin unlocking iPhones of Ma’Bell subscribers who have finished their two-year contracts with AT&T, are in good standing with AT&T or have paid an early termination fee.
In a statement, AT&T said:
“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.”
Actually, AT&T subscribers who wanted their iPhones unlocked were having it done through Apple CEO Tim Cook’s office, the publication has earlier reported.
However, it seems the matter has been forwarded to AT&T which decided it will begin unlocking iPhones of qualifying subscribers.
