Here is an interesting bit of news – off-contract iPhones on the AT&T network will be unlocked starting from this Sunday onwards, so make sure you mark April 8 on your respective calendars if you fall under this unique category of iPhone users. This is certainly a pleasant surprise, almost on par with that of seeing a basket of chocolate eggs on Easter Sunday sitting in front of your doorstep, left by a good Samaritan.
You will, however, need to request for the carrier unlock yourself, and if you do not do so, your iPhone will remain locked to AT&T. Basically, once you are freed from the shackles of a network lock, your iPhone will then be able to play nice with any micro-SIM from other mobile carriers, assuming the carrier’s frequencies are supported by the iPhone in question, of course. I can see you do a little jig already, as you know that you will be able to work with a local micro-SIM on your next holiday overseas without having to suffer the risk of a bill shock due to unwanted international data roaming fees.
