AT&T Ordered To Unlock All Phones...Except iPhones...And Blackberries...
   


9to5 Mac has a report from Consumerist Report, saying that AT&T just finished up a class action lawsuit which would allow any pre or post paid customer the capability to unlock their AT&T devices, as long as the phone is not bound to a 10+ month exclusivity agreement.You know what that means…the above includes practically every phone that AT&T sells, save for the iPhone.  Here's some of the wording from the settlement.1) Customers with postpaid accounts who have completed a minimum of 90 days of active service and are in good standing and current in their payments.2) Customers with prepaid accounts who have provided a detailed receipt or other proof of purchase of the handset.3) Customers who own handsets for which AT&T has an exclusive sales arrangement with a manufacturer of less than 10 months will have to wait until the 10-month period expires before they can receive an unlocking code.If you want to opt out of the settlement or object to it, you have until June 4, 2010 to post mark your filing.  The final approval hearing will be held July 2, 2010.  For more information visit www.attlockinglawsuits.comWhat do our MaclLifers think of this?  Feel free to leave comments below!Image courtesy of hyfeno.com
