    Hi, paid full price, current AT&T customer. I would like the phone unlocked for travel. Filled out the web form. Just wondering if anyone has actually had success yet, or if AT&T is pulling some baloney like we'll start unlocking in month. I paid full price, I'm a legit customer, and I want it unlocked now.

    Unlocked for international travel? Likely, if you're a customer in good standing.

    Yeah, I'm going to try this when it shows up today. Had an unlocked 4S before they started doing unlocks for people.

    Well apparently the phones are already unlocked if you bought them full price from apple.

    I agree, but there might be a subtle difference if you supplied your phone number. There seems to be a discrepancy: you buy device-only without supplying a phone number, it appears to be unlocked; if you supply a phone number, it may get locked to AT&T.

    I do not fully know, though.
