    Now that 3 U.S. based carriers have the iPhone, is there any hope of AT&T unlocking our out-of-contract phones? I have been in China for 10 months now and would like to use iOS 5 on my iPhone 4, but obviously can't since it will lock it. Any news or rumors?

    Abandon hope, my friend.

    I highly doubt it.
    Why would they? Nobody will make them do it.

    From what I've heard they will unlock it if you call them. That's all hearsay though. I think there is a charge as well.

    Well in the past their excuse was their policy is to not unlock phones for which they have exclusivity agreements. Now that they don't have an agreement and the other carriers have the same hardware, maybe there's a chance. Or they'll come up with some bs excuse.

    I wonder if Verizon will unlock the gsm portion of their phones (if they even can); they've been willing to unlock other world phones in the past iirc

    Negative on both.
    Unless the Government steps in and does something right for once or they will continue those consumer unfair practices.
