    You either pay the ETF to get out of contract or buy it full price or prove to them you're getting deployed overseas.
    Besides that they wont unlock it for other reasons. You can try though.
    Or best and easier option below.
    Pay $5-6 on ebay and purchase an IMEI unlock for it.

    You can only do this if the iPhone has completed the contract cycle. Otherwise the only options as stated above is to pay the ETF and request the unlock from them or purchase an IMEI unlock.

    You thought wrong.
    Read the details below:

    General Eligibility Requirements for Unlocking iPhone

    AT&T will unlock an iPhone under the following circumstances:
    •The person requesting the unlock is: ◦a current AT&T customer or
    ◦a former AT&T customer who can provide the phone number or account number for the account

    •The iPhone was designed for use on AT&T's network;
    •All contract obligations, including any term commitment, associated with the device to be unlocked have been fully satisfied; and
    •The iPhone has not been reported lost or stolen.





    Additional Information about iPhone Unlocks

    Current customers will be allowed five (5) unlocks per account, per year, so long as their account is in good standing with no past-due amount or unpaid balance and has been active for at least sixty (60) days.

    Former customers will be allowed five (5) unlocks per former account so long as they owe AT&T no Early Termination Fee or other unpaid balance.
