    Anyone have success unlocking their iPhone 6S Plus while under Next with the likes of swift unlocks?

    Best is to just unlock via AT&T website. Even if you are still paying off the phone. Just search unlock device on their website.

    Why would a device that is under contract need to be unlocked? Seems shady.

    I travel out of the country at times and prefer to use a service in the country I visit rather than my carriers insane fees.

    I have no experience with "inofficial" unlocking services, but I'd first try to request an unlock from AT&T. Perhaps you are lucky. Otherwise you also have the option of paying off the Next plan and then unlocking it (see here).

    Like Isara said above try the official channel first. it is easy and pretty quick, I was unlocked within a couple of hours when I did it last week.

    Do an encrypted backup because you do have to reset the phone.

    The old instructions said you need to, but you haven't had to reset the phone for it to work for some time now.

    Explain why it's shady?

    Yes it can be unlocked still in contract or payment plans.
