Yes there are a few strings attached, I’m sure that was the first thing going through your mind when you saw this article. AT&T’s Vice President of Federal Regulatory, Joan Marsh, told everybody in a blog post on Friday about AT&T’s unlocking policy. To make a long story short let me just quote the VP on what they said, “As we make clear on our website, if we have the unlock code or can reasonably get it from the manufacturer, AT&T currently will unlock a device for a customer whose account has been active for at least sixty days; whose account is in good standing and has no unpaid balance; and who has fulfilled his or her service agreement commitment. If the conditions are met we will unlock up to five devices per account per year. We will not unlock devices that have been reported lost or stolen.
The needs that need to be met to have your device unlocked seem fair and most people shouldn’t have a problem meeting them. What isn’t mentioned though is if and how much it will cost to have AT&T unlock your mobile phone. Needless to say this is nice of AT&T to do because lets face it they don’t really have to do this for their customers.
