    I am looking to unlock an iPhone 4 that I purchased.

    The issue is that I am on a Small Business plan with AT&T but I am not the plan owner, or what ever they call it, I am only authorized to make in store changes. This plan is under a corporate umbrella so it will take a bit to get in contact with the right person so that I can get the phone unlocked through AT&T. Are there any other ways that are possible to get the phone unlocked? I am not really wanting to go through the hassle of jailbreaking and I would rather not pay to have it done since I am trying to maximize my profit on my iPhone because I have a buyer but they need to have it unlocked.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    Without paying a cell phone store, or buying a gevey sim, then no.

    Could the phone be activated on a family's plan and get around my problem?

    The iPhone can be unlocked by any AT&T customer (account holder), just as long as the iPhone isn't tied to a contract.

    Ok, so the old iPhone's IMEI is not tied to my employer's account? The 4s that I purchased to replace the 4 is still active on the same number and is in good standing. Just never done this before and wanting to get rid of the phone cuz I need the money.

    It shouldn't be anymore since you're using the 4S now. AT&T would have had to change the IMEI of the iPhone in their system.

    That was what I was thinking but I wasn't sure how their systems worked.

    You should have no problem getting the iPhone 4 unlocked by them.
