    I'm going to call AT&T tomorrow to see if they will unlock my 4s, I bought it from eBay new sealed etc checked with apple before bidding to confirm its legit, apple said the phone was new and has never been activated no issues. Few questions will they unlock my 4s if I bought it from eBay ? If they can should I remove the 5.1.1 jail break ? Can I jailbreak after the unlock with out interfering with unlock, my 4s ATM is jailbroke on straight talk at some point I'll sell it on eBay, I noticed the unlocked iPhones are better sellers more bids higher auction ending price. I appreciate the feedback :)

    Yep you can be jailbroken and it doesnt matter where you got it. Just as long as your contract is up and your on a month to month payment basis.

    I've never been a AT&T customer, currently I'm using straight talk mobile so I'm guessing if the guy who sold it to me on eBay obtained the 4s by renewing a 2 year contract that might be a problem not sure thanks for the jailbreak info I'll give AT&T a call in the morning

    Why should AT&T unlock your phone if you've never been a customer? They will not unlock your phone. Unlocking is a benefit they give their customers, it's not for any one that simply has an at&t iPhone.

    Simply check out the thread discussing ATT unlocking iPhone 4's and see how many complain that ATT wouldn't unlock their phone because they were not ATT customers.

    They still do it for noncustomers all the time.
    You just gotta get lucky with a good rep.
    Some will give you probs and wont unlock it even if you're an AT&T customer. Others will take care of you.
    So dont be so quick to say they will not or never will unlock an iphone etc..

    Thank you applejuiced !:) if I'm lucky enough to run into nice reps I'll get their info ID number etc and I'll post it in AT&T unlock. Maybe if ppl request the same rep it might be easier.

    Lol :D
    I dont think you can request a rep, its just whatever one is available next when you call.
    I too had to go through a few not very nice or knowledgeable reps to find one that's willing to help and knows what they're doing.
