Thank you very much for your question on iPhone  unlocking. But you did not write any phone model, for this I am tried to writing  my tutorial such a  way that you can unlock any iPhone if you follow my tutorial.

Now I am telling you the step by step unlocking process of AT&T iPhone mobile.

How to request a for device unlocking of AT&T iPhone?

You can submit a request for your iPhone unlocking if you have eligibility requirement or if you fulfill the requirement of the company. Always remember that Your AT&T phone, tablet, or mobile hotspot must meet the eligibility requirements before it can be unlocked.

Now let’s see the What kind of Eligibility requirements need to fulfill for Wireless, business & non-AT&T customers?  

Requirements for unlocking AT&T phones, tablets, and mobile hotspots.

  1. Your device isn’t reported lost or stolen or involved with fraud.
  2. You must complete your contract or installment plan (including early termination fees).
  3. pay off an installment plan early and then make another unlock request in 24 hours.
  4. Your device isn’t active on another AT&T account.
  5. If you upgraded early, wait 14 days to unlock your old device. Business customers wait 30 days.
  6. Your service must be active for at least 60 days with no past due or unpaid balance.
  7. AT&T PREPAIDSM (formerly GoPhone®) devices must have at least 6 months of active service.
  8. If you’re military, we’ll ask you to email your TCS or PCS (Temporary / permanent change of station) documents for eligibility. You won’t have to complete installment plans or contracts.
  9. If you have a business-owned device, your company must authorize you to unlock it.

The important legal stuff.

AT&T reserves the right to deny any unlock request that it concludes would result in an abuse of this policy or is part of an effort to defraud AT&T or its customers. AT&T further reserves the right to alter this unlocking policy at its discretion without advance notice. If during any one month, more than 100 requests are made from a single source, and if more than 10% of those requests are duplicate IMEI numbers, AT&T will no longer process unlock requests from that source.

If you have eligibility requirement or if you fulfill the requirement of the company, Then you can  Submit unlock request form

To unlock your device to work on another wireless carrier’s network:

  1. Visit https://att.com/deviceunlock
  2. Select Unlock your device.

  5. You’ll receive a confirmation email with the unlock request number.
