Apple unlocking all ‘no commitment’ AT&T iPhone 4 units?

Apple is now unlocking all AT&T iPhone 4 units purchased at the “no commitment” price, according to a new report. Citing an internal Apple sales training document, Mac Rumors reports that there are now two ways a customer can purchase an unlocked iPhone 4 at the Apple Store. The first is to purchase an unlocked iPhone without a micro-SIM card inside, while the second is to purchase any iPhone 4 with an AT&T micro-SIM inside “at full price.” “These models will also be unlocked whether the customer signs up for an AT&T service plan or chooses the Device Only purchase option,” reads the document. It also notes that “All devices sold at the unsubsidized prices of $649 and $749 will be unlocked and can be activated and used on supported GSM carrier networks.” Apple began selling unlocked iPhone 4 units in the U.S. for the first time earlier this month.

I inadvertently bought an iPnone 4 in Bangkok from what I thought was an approved Apple dealer but later learned they were only approved to sell all Apple products except the iPhone.  I paid the full price of 29,355 baht which worked out to £628.11 (not sure what that is in dollars) and I received what I thought was an officially unlocked Apple product.  When I got back to the UK I discovered that my iPhone had been unofficially unlocked and that my phone was originally locked to AT&t which is of course no good to me in the UK. Both Apple and AT&T are pointing fingers at each other which is not much good to me. Would this announcement you have made make any difference to my position? Thank you.
