    i bought an iphone 4g 32gb from craigslist for 325 and bought a Gophone card from AT&T. I called the customer rep and she said she cant unlock it. Screw them.

    you can go to amazon and buy the micro sim cutter which will convert your regular sim to a micro sim, and it also comes with micro sim to regular sim adopter and you can do vice versa.

    By anonymous on 04/09/2012, 06:39 PM EDT
    If I go to Asia or Europe how can I get Micro sim do they have it avaible ?
    like I travel to Asia I just buy a sim card and add in minute calling over there I call back home , in Europe same thing, but I wonder if any one know any availble for Micro sim in Asia or Europe.

    By anonymous on 04/09/2012, 03:03 PM EDT
    for 04/09/2012, 12:37pm

    U can just easily cut the SIM into MircoSIM, it's very easy and there is tool for this. Also, T-mobile will happy to cut that for you

    By anonymous on 04/09/2012, 02:32 PM EDT
    12:46pm, probably to enjoy a cool device by saving up for it.

    By anonymous on 04/09/2012, 01:46 PM EDT
    "because I buy my iphone 4 in full price."
    = idiot or rich idiot

    if your willing to spend 600+ for a phone why would you be here on dealsea to save money???

    By anonymous on 04/09/2012, 01:37 PM EDT
    what can you use when you unlocked you IPhone4S? it came with Micro sim. it not the same Sim from the 3Gs, you can't use any where else in the World with this Iphone 4S, no Micro Sim available

    By anonymous on 04/09/2012, 12:55 PM EDT
    What's the number to fax the documents at?

    By anonymous on 04/09/2012, 12:36 PM EDT
    http://db.tt/pHttl1cg get your 16GB free dropbox for your device.

    By anonymous on 04/09/2012, 10:30 AM EDT
    Forget about unlocking Apple crap. It doesn't matter how you unlock crap is still crap.

    By anonymous on 04/09/2012, 10:01 AM EDT
    to 08:37pm
    that's not correct. I tried twice to unlock my iphone when I was traveling to Europe and they refused saying that Apple doesn't provide unlock codes. Hopefully it will work this summer...
    I don't understand why they cannot provide unlock codes - I am still obligated with my contract no matter what.

    By anonymous on 04/09/2012, 09:20 AM EDT
    Thank you, got my 3gs unlocked

    By anonymous on 04/09/2012, 01:36 AM EDT

    if I buy iphone 4 today, can I pay early termination fee on June and get it unlocked?

    By anonymous on 04/08/2012, 10:35 PM EDT
    Here is how you can unlock your iPhone (Just Call):
    1. You must have $0 balance in your account.
    2. You need to have proof of purchase.
    3. You need to fax them your proof of purchase.
    4. You must complete your 2 years commitment.
    5. AAT&T won't unlock iPhone 4 until June this year.

    Only way Steve Jobs was going to get out of hell.

    By anonymous on 04/08/2012, 10:12 PM EDT
    I unlocked my iPhone 3G today. They did not unlock my iPhone 4 because AT&T said that they will unlock my iPhone 4 in the end of June when my contract expires.

    @ 08:37pm
    I have tried many times to unlock my iphone that way, never succeeded. Thanks OP, finally unlocked my iphone 3gs today.

    By anonymous on 04/08/2012, 09:37 PM EDT
    There have never been an issue to unlock iPhone 4S/4/3, the simplest thing to do is to call them and say that I am traveling overseas and the country going to does not have att and to use the iPhone, they have to unlock it.
    Your account has to be in good standing for at least 30 days.
    Hope that helps..

    By anonymous on 04/08/2012, 08:21 PM EDT
    After Unlocking, will I get to update the phone with new "updates"..?

    By anonymous on 04/08/2012, 08:02 PM EDT
    Just unlocked my 3GS

    By anonymous on 04/08/2012, 07:34 PM EDT

    I just heard at&t only unlock iphone 3gs so far,since the iphone first came out on 06/24/2010.I don't know why someone got iphone4 unlocked.

    BC after 18 months, you are Ok to upgrade your phone without early termination fee!

    if you know there is transfer from group customer to individual customer (Say, you used your university wireless service and then transferred after your graduation.) You will find your 2 year contract has ended right after the transfer

    By anonymous on 04/08/2012, 07:18 PM EDT
    i bought my iphone 4 from Apple with full price. Just called, they ask me fax back and it is doable.

    att sucks, they are not willing to unlock my iphone even without two years contract

    By anonymous on 04/08/2012, 06:39 PM EDT
    The question why do they? A Class action lawsuit?They used to refer to Apple for unlocking..Then apple referring at&t..

    By anonymous on 04/08/2012, 06:05 PM EDT
    a hundred billion dollars in cash from selling phones and tablets - the continued dumbification of the hapless consumer. you can't add 5+8 without your iCalculator or by asking siri .... lemmings lol

    By anonymous on 04/08/2012, 04:31 PM EDT

    Just called 611 and the CSR said I have to wait till the 2-yr-contract ends or pay early termination fee to unlock my iPhone 4S.

    By anonymous on 04/08/2012, 04:30 PM EDT

    By anonymous on 04/08/2012, 04:26 PM EDT

    By anonymous on 04/08/2012, 04:20 PM EDT

    By anonymous on 04/08/2012, 04:20 PM EDT
    Just called AT&T. They say you have to complete the 2-year contract to unlock your iphone. Bad for me...
