Re: iPhone unlocking questions and discussion

I am very interesting in this ‘In addition, AT&T will unlock an iPhone for: (I) an active and deployed member of the military who is a current AT&T customer in good standing and is able to provide AT&T with deployment verification." I am in the military and I will be deploying sometimes this year, am I eligible to get my phone unlock and if I do what kind of verification do I need to provide, will a memo from my commander be sufficed? I know in the message it said "deployed member" but it sounded kind of silly, if I am deployed to Afghanistan how would I contact you in the middle of nowhere to try to get my phone unlock.
Fill out the form the is in this link
Does the online tool you linked to have the "military deployment" exemption option?
Yes, but you need to be a "Current" customer. If you are, select that option, continue and provide the appropriate info where indicated.
If you are not a current customer, this option is not available to you.
The process is very clear and simple. Please do not reply about exceptions to or the fairness of this policy. It is what it is.
I was trying to get clarification of the wording of this policy, so I can proceed to apply for unlock if I'm eligible instead of wasting everyone's time, not trying to ask for any exception. The link that was provided did not have any additional information to my question, and it was pretty useless, I thank you for trying to help me, but you should click that link first before directing me to a dead end.
first step was to check the website to see if the form works for what you needed, the next would be to call them and be ready to supply them with the documentation required - at minimum a copy of your deployment orders, from the wording it appears that you should be able to unlock the phone with out having to fullfill the other reequirements. The link was not a dead end, but it was the first place to check.
