    I am thinking that this should be something that be done automatically as once the contract is finished, surely the carrier doesn't have any interest in keeping the phone on their network.

    Is there a way to get the phone unlocked from :apple:?

    I am in Japan on softbank and would like to get my 4 unlocked after i get the new model so I can give my 4 to relatives in another country.

    I don't believe apple can do it, you will have to have it done by the carrier or use one of those pay services, some have had success do that.
