    After sniffing around, I've found a site that appears to have been in business since 2001 unlocking other models of phones.

    I'm not linking to it, and won't PM you it, find it on your own. I don't want to be seen as having an agenda here.

    Anyway, my advice is to go with places that look legitimate, not these little rinky-dink blogs that all of the hammerheads here are pumping up.

    Wish me luck ladies.

    :p

    I was all set to go with the service I found, now I'm having second-thoughts. I usually always go with my gut instinct. As I said, the site I found has been in business since 2001 apparently unlocking every phone except the iPhone obviously. Its whole niche is for overseas travelers.

    Until this method's price drops down closer to $100 and it's obvious that Apple isn't going to re-lock these phones, I'm not going near it.

    I'd hold off for a while.
    Let see how it goes down first.....

    If the service is still around by then (and AT&T doesn't miraculously start offering official unlocks), I'll probably do this for iPhone 5... It's not worth paying $175 on an unlock for a phone that I intend to sell in a couple months, especially since I've still got the original baseband.
