Hi everybody out there,
I'm an Italian citizen who spent few months in the States this year on business. When there I bought from Best Buy an AT&T looked iPhone 4, paid at full price with no discount, which I used utilizing a Sim card with an AT&T plan of a friend of mine. Now I'm in Italy and I cannot use this phone because is blocked. I'm wondering why I cannot use a phone, I paid full price, with a company different than AT&T. This is a real abuse and I'm considering to sue AT&T. It is like to buy, say, a Ford car (or whatever else) and then Ford pretend you use it only with Mobil gas and not with Exxon. There is no way for me to contact even by email AT&T (I tried, but their web site is a nightmare) and they have no Italian subsidiary. Any of you has any suggestion on how to contact these people?
Really many thanks for your attention.

Yeah, sorry guy, but buying at full price doesn't mean an unlocked phone, it is locked, and as of today, can not (or will not) be unlocked by Apple or AT&T. As others pointed out, look at the back of the box, is clearly states that it is locked to AT&T with no indication that it can be unlocked, you can stop considering to sue anyone, waste of time.
