Even if you downgrade to ios 4 ( which you cant ), your baseband will still remain at 4.11.08.
Therefore, there is no way to unlock your phone currently.

Has anybody that is at the end of their contract request AT&T to provide the subsidy unlock code for any Iphone?

AT&T iPhone 4s will not be unlocked by the carrier.
The question was for ANY Iphone model.
Since the 4s was just released it should be a least 2 yrs from date of purchase before AT&T has to unlock it.
Before the smart phone craze, a law was past that a cell phone provider had to provide the subsidy unlock for a customer after a certain length of time. I believe it was 90 days. I have other non-smart phones unlocked but I have yet to call up a try to get any Iphones unlocked. I seem to remember reading somewhere that after your contract expired AT&T would provide the subsidy unlock code.

Cite a law that requires AT&T to unlock the phone after 2 years then.

What law?

I've never heard of that contract clause.

I tried and couldn't get them to do it.

AT&T has never unlocked iPhones and likely never will since they have no obligation to do so

OP, if you want/need the unlock, spend the money and buy a FUL
