    If this is true wouldn't you think the method (code) was leaked onto the internet by now?
    Sounds like bullsh*t to me, pardon my French.

    I don't want to judge any unconfirmed claims, but: it could be possible, problem is that i can't see the reason why att should do that?! I can imagine that they got a gophone plan and that's it. Then: if this is possible for real, why they haven't post an evidence to confirm that? Hmm..

    It might actually be possible. In Germany it is a law that you have to unlock a phone after 2 years (afaik) and for a small fee immediatly. This is most often done by entering a number (standardized) into the phone.

    Well we will se

    I talk to AT&T
    I am in Denmark, bought an iPhone and activated it in USA. Using it with roaming in DK.
    I have contacted AT&T several times trying to get it unlocked. They are absolutely not going to uncode anything. They have an exclusive deal with apple and even after 2 years AT&T service you will not get it unlocked through AT&T.

    Well we will se

    It is a EUROPEAN law (with the exception of Belgium I think but I'm not sure) that the provider has to offer an unlock code for an "appropiate" fee during the time of the contract and a FREE unlock code after the contract expires.
    The "standarized" number is actually a number calculated by several factors, it is an individual number and works ONLY on the phone you're allowed to unlock.

    AT&T has the possibility to issue unlock codes or to unlock the iPhone over the air but they won't do it. I talked to them and apparently they have a 5 year exclusive contract with Apple, meaning that even after two years when the AT&T contract expires, you end up with a beautiful brick if you don't stay with AT&T. This may actually be a good argument for a class suit action against AT&T and the fact that they don't mention that after two years, the iPhone still can't be used with a different provider. I somehow think that US legislation will change in this matter because US politicians also bought iPhones and as soon as they realize that there is no way out of the AT&T contract, they'll start "knocking" on AT&T's door.
    Meaning: there is a pretty good chance that AT&T will be forced to deliver unlock codes after two years, at least for early customers if they change their subscription conditions to avoid legal problems later on regarding this matter.

    There may be even worse news: according to a friend I spoke to today, he works for a major cell phone service provider in Germany as an engineer, the iPhone unlock hack method, when found, may not be something anybody could do at home with some sort of program or keygenerator for the code. He mentioned that his company has already contacts to Apple regarding the iPhone and that technical details has been discussed on a lower level too. Apparently the unlocking process is pretty well "protected", he can't give me details because he is afraid that not many people know about this and he could be "exposed" but apparently you need some special hardware to be able to unlock the iPhone or some sort of valid over the air provider connection, so the unlock code is transmitted to your phone directed from the provider (don't know how this works, I'm just the messenger). Meaning: it is very likely that even if the Dev Team finds an unlock hack, most of us need to send our iPhones in to some sort of "unlock service". If true (again: this is NOT confirmed!), it would be bad news for most of us who have hoped for an easy unlock solution.

    Absolutely correct. Right now, there is no unofficial unlock available. Period.
    Even worse: even the official one isn't available. :p
