I put in my request well over a week ago and was given a case number and
a date of 4/17. When I chatted on 4/17 with customer svc, they said
that due to the huge volume of requests, it may be 4/18. I still have
not rec'd an email from AT&T re. my request. Is this happening to a lot
of folks?

I put in my request Friday 04/20/2012.

The only requirements are that a customer's account must be in good
standing, their device cannot be associated with a current and active
term commitment on an AT&T customer account.

My term is only a little over a year old so has a while to go. I sold my
iPhone 4 that is the device still under contract and bought a iPhone 4s
on eBay.

Not knowing if my eBayed 4S was under a contract or not I applied for
the unlock. I got the E-mail about 6:30pm 04/23/2012. My iPhone is now
unlocked and works with my T-Mobile sim I cut down with a sim cutter.

ATT/Apple has changed the program several times. The part saying "they
need to have fulfilled their contract term, upgraded under one of our
upgrade policies or paid an early termination fee" did not apply to me.

Copy of E-mail follows with numbers stared out.
************************************************
We recently received your request for the unlock code on the following
device:

EMAIL: My E-mail was here
CASE: CM********_********
MOBILE: 757*******
MANUFACTURER: Apple

Thank you for contacting AT&T Customer Care about unlocking your iPhone.

I have already posted my happy story about getting mine unlocked. I
forgot to mention the rep I talked to had me fax the request to them. I
faxed it within five min. of getting off the phone with the rep.
Did the ATT rep ask you to fax in the request? If not the number is
800-328-1677.
Hope you get it unlocked soon!

John
