Can i buy AT&T iphone 6 full price and have it unlocked?

I preordered iPhone 6 and it will arrive today. I want to give it to my sister who is with another carrier. Can I pay the phone in full and have it unlocked?

 

I am existing AT&T customer, previoulsy without contract and this new iphone is upgraded through contract. I'm planning to cancel the contract and pay the phone in full and have it unlocked.

I bought a ATT No contract Windows phone in December, just used it for wifi, not a att customer never got service on the phone. Just put in a request online to unlock it (chose option not a customer and just had to provide IMEI and an email address) 1 day later I got an unlock code, now I can use it on T-mobile. I want 2 more phones not sure if i will get away with it again and dont want to wait 9 months and dont want to get att service. Would be nice to know the exact rules they have for unlocking phones. the ATT no contract phone is $100 cheaper than the Unlocked phone.

if i buy an at&t iphone 6 from at&t and pay full price, it is locked to at&t correct? can i still use my own at&t sim card and plan with the iphone 6 even though it is locked? Also do i have to pay any contract fees or anything? my plan is a prepaid plan, can i unlock my iphone from at&t, but still choose to use the at&t sim card?

You can buy unlocked from Apple for full price.  (Not sure if they still have the 6)
