    Hey guys, I've been a T-Mobile customer since they were VoiceStream. I currently have the HTC sensation 4G. I am sick of T-Mobile not supporting the iPhone, so I've decided to buy an unlocked iPhone 4S brand-new. The question I ask is, if I go to my local AT&T store, and buy a new iPhone 4S off contract, will it be unlocked? I remember last year, people were saying if they bought an AT&T phone off contract, it was unlocked. It's either that, or by the phone off the Apple site itself. I would like to get the iPhone five, however I do not feel like spending an extra hundred bucks for an unlocked iPhone five.

    Does anybody know if the AT&T store will have them unlocked?

    I know you can unlock any 4s via ATT when you are out of contract, so a full price phone should be no different.

    at&t should have it, but why buy from them. Be safe and buy from an apple store. Or if you can handle a used one, there are plenty on ebay

    If your looking for the 4S just buy it unlocked on the Apple store online.

    Select black/white and at the bottom is "Or get iPhone unlocked and contract-free."

    The initial "contract free" iPhones from AT&T were locked - I don't know if they've changed the policy now that they unlock iPhones for users out of contract.

    take this FWIW...

    but you could buy a used 4S, and then unlock it by paying a small fee for like the gevey unlock or on ebay or something I think?
