    Is the iPhone 4S (AT&T) unlockable? If so, does it matter what version of iOS its running? Thanks.

    AT&T will unlock your iPhone on request after you finish the contract with them. Or you can pay one of the online services to unlock it for you. It does not matter what version of the software you're running.

    I'm on TMobile looking to use an ATT iPhone 4S. I don't think redsn0w would unlock it, but just want to make sure...?

    I unlocked my 4S through an ebay seller, was about $8 and took probably 3 hours. iOS version didn't matter. Tmobile sim worked just fine it it. You may have to adjust your APN settings, but it's not that hard to do and the instructions are online at tmoble or via google.

    There are several services offering IMEI unlock in ebay. They are basically adding the iPhone to ATT's / Apple 's unlocked phones database. They are said to be quite efficient.

    If you meet AT&T's requirements (no outstanding balance, out of contract, paid fees, etc...) go to this address and fill out the form.

    Search "iPhone 4s unlock" on your local Craigslist site. People do this daily. It takes a few minutes and costs around $40. Operating system version does not matter.

    Anywhere from $8 all the way up to 60-70
    There's tons of sellers on eBay.

    If you meet those requirements below they will unlock it. If not they will just send you an email telling you they denied your request.
