Hello! I preordered the iPhone 6 with a cross upgrade (my dad's #) and just received and activated it on Tuesday on my own phone #.

I submitted an unlock request for my old iPhone 5s and was denied because it said it was still under contract.

Does anybody know if that device will become eligible to be unlocked before next fall? (when my previous 2 year contract would have been up)

Thanks!

Cross upgrade does not relieve you from 'your' current contract. ATT will only unlock your dad's phone since he had obviously fulfilled contract. I believe you will have to wait till next fall or unless you are willing to pay ETF.
