AT&T, Apple Agree to Limited U.S. Sales of Unlocked iPhones

Unlocking is okay, says AT&T, but only if you're an existing AT&T customer

Apple and AT&T have fought long and hard against iPhone unlockers in the U.S. While some foreign countries have mandated Apple sell unlocked iPhones, in the U.S. such phones are still not available.

According to a Boy Genius Report scoop, that could soon change. The site claims to have obtained slides from an internal AT&T training presentation that indicate that Apple and AT&T will offer unlocked, contract-free iPhone 3Gs to existing AT&T customers starting March 26. The 8 GB model would be priced at $599, while the 16 GB would be priced at $699.

The phones would require no service agreement or activation and could work on other networks. Again, the "No-Commit" pricing option would be limited to only existing AT&T customers, and only one phone would be available per customer. Thus, it seems that AT&T is trying to silence complaints about strong-arm tactics when it comes to unlocking, while keeping the sales of unlocked iPhones very limited.
