AT&T offers iPhone unlocking, T-Mobile pitches plans

Ahead of the next-generation iPhone’s launch, AT&T is offering to unlock iPhones for AT&T customers who have fulfilled their contracts, so long as the iPhones were not reported as stolen. Users can fill out a request form to unlock an AT&T iPhone, and will receive a response from the company within several days. According to one report, some iPhone users with current contracts have had success, as well. [via Ubergizmo]

Spurned by Apple as an official iPhone carrier, T-Mobile is actively attempting to solicit users of unlocked iPhones to use the devices on their network. As part of a pitch to recruit iPhone users, T-Mobile notes that customers will be able to use their iPhones with T-Mobile’s recently unveiled unlimited 4G data plan, which is offered at a $20-$30 cost over standard voice and messaging plans. However, only AT&T iPhones will work on the T-Mobile network, so users of Verizon and Sprint devices need not apply. [via TmoNews]
