Last week AT&T announced that it will be unlocking iPhones of those customers that have completed their contract or those who have paid the entire amount of the contract. AT&T customers who have been using the service contract for over 2 years can get their iPhones to the nearest AT&T help center to get the iPhones unlocked. The nextweb has posted a detailed article on their website describing the process of officially unlocking apple iphone. Good news for iPhone customers who can now get their iPhone factory unlocked without paying anything extra. The existing iPhone customers can also get their AT&T iPhone unlock by paying the entire contract amout.

The process is painless and only takes a few minutes in the chat. The only piece of information required by AT&T is the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number, which can be found under Settings>General>About on your device.

Once you’ve completed the procedure, Apple pushes the unlock code during the next 72 hours to your email address, so the code comes from the mothership, not from AT&T. Once Apple completes the unlock request, a customer has to back-up and restore and tether the device to iTunes to complete the unlock process.

Here are the simple steps to factory unlock apple iPhone on AT&T carrier.

Step 1: On your iPhone go to Settings > General > About > and find your IMEI number. (You can also do this in iTunes)

Step 2: Go to AT&T’s chat support page, (you will need to log in to your AT&T account to do this). Log in. Then click “Chat Now” which is right next to “Technical Support”.

Step 3: Complete the chat form, and say “I would like to unlock my iPhone 4″ in the “How may we assist you today?” area. Then simply click “Start Chat”.

Step 4: Tell the rep. that you need to unlock your iPhone, and give them the IMEI number from your iPhone. This will allow the rep. to unlock your iPhone.

Step 5: If your device is eligible, the rep. will need your email address. They will send you the final unlock instructions to your email, so verify that you typed your email correctly. Be patient as this could take up to 2 weeks for them to finalize your unlock request.

Now, all you have to do is wait. Within 1-2 weeks you will receive the unlock code and the final steps to unlock your iPhone. Congratulations for getting your iPhone factory unlocked
