Matthew Panzarino, for TNW:
We reported Friday that AT&T was beginning to unlock out-of-contract iPhones as of April 8th, today. Now a few more details of the process are available.
First, you can do this in-store, but you can also do it in an online chat at AT&T’s website. 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.
I will certainly give this a spin with my old 3GS.
Ben Brooks on the re-labeling of AT&T’s iPhone network as “4G:”
Long story short:
4G LTEare not equals, and shame on Apple for misleading iPhone users with the
4Gtag that AT&T so clearly loves to toss about.
The term 4G has become so watered down that it’s pretty much meaningless at this point.
