    She needs to have finished her contract AND upgraded. They will not unlock any iPhone associated to an account that is still in use. If she leaves AT&T once the contract has ended they will not unlock it either.

    They will nly unlock iPhones where the customer has come to the end of the contract and then upgraded, effectively it's a way of trapping the customer in my opinion because if you want to go to someone else you have to leave your iPhone behind on AT&T but if you want to unlock you have to upgrade

    If you want it unlocked just use the new SAM solution, works perfectly, although you will have to jailbreak it first, which can be a problem if you've updated to iOS 5.1.

    Not before the contract gets over. AT&T has to recover the cost of the phone via contract.

    You can always try contacting AT&T.
    I heard many people unlocking their iphones that are still under contract.
    Its not impossible if you get a nice and helpfull rep.
