AT&T has announced that they are launching a program where eligible customers would be able to get their iPhones purchased through them unlocked.
This program is applicable on customers whose accounts are in good standing and are no longer under a contract.
The company said:
Beginning Sunday, April 8, we will offer qualifying customers the ability to unlock their AT&T iPhones. The only requirements are that a customer’s account must be in good standing, their device cannot be associated with a current and active term commitment on an AT&T customer account, and they need to have fulfilled their contract term, upgraded under one of our upgrade policies or paid an early termination fee.
Looks like an initiative taken by Tim Cook!
