AT&T announced earlier that they would start unlocking out of contract iPhones for users that wanted to use their devices with other carriers. Starting yesterday, they have followed through with their promises and have been unlocking all devices that meet the requirements. In this guide we will be helping you take advantage of this offer.

Requirements

An iPhone that is no longer bound by a contract, nor on the stolen list.

Know your IMEI Number: Can be found  in Settings > General > About

Steps

1. Go to AT&T’s support page and click “Chat Now” after you are logged in.

2. Specify that you wish to unlock your iPhone and begin the chat.

3. Give the person your IMEI number and see if you are eligible

4. Give the representative your email and wait for the unlock request to go through.

    Hi guys, I have the same problem as AboAbdulla. I’m in Mexico and I when I started the registration, it asked for a Wireless Number and a Billing Zip Code which I don’t have.
    Can anyone with an active account help me unlock my iPhone 4 if I provide my IMEI?

  • Moyassin

    Where’s the chat now I can’t find it

  • radamel9

    I experience the same problem like @ramutio  and @AboAbdulla . I live in Turkey and purchased my iPhone 4 in NY. Since apple store provided me just an AT&T sim card without any network connection, I don’t have neither any wireless number nor anything else in that list. Please help us

    i just found a way around if  you don’t have one an account with att.
    all you have to do is call att 1-800-331-0500 and press 0 until a rep talks to you
    tell them that you want your phone unlocked. and that is no longer under contract.
    they will ask you how you got your phone. i told them ebay. they are going to ask you for
    your IMEI number. give to them and you are good to go. the will give you a case number.

       @cancuncatsilver called the 800 number, talked to the rep, passed the verification process and I will have my unlock code in a few days. This is really the “easiest” way! Thanks!
