In some unexpected news this week, reports came out that AT&T would begin unlocking iPhones that are no longer on contract with AT&T. This report comes from Engadget, who claims that an anonymous tipster has told them of this breaking news.
“We’ve just received word of a spicy strategy change, to be enacted this Sunday, that’s sure to please the AT&T iPhone-loving masses. On Easter, select Ma’ Bell customers with iPhones–those off-contract with accounts in good standing–will be able to request a carrier unlock for their device.”
There has not yet been an official confirmation from AT&T, so we dont know if this news is a sure thing, but Engadget has reported that they can confirm that there will be a new policy regarding iPhones coming this weekend.
