Now what?

Now that our AT&T iPhones are unlocked do they have any new "superpowers"?

Can we tether other devices without AT&T's ble$$ing? That will be handy overseas with a local SIM. But how about here in the USA?

Nothing at all - locked or unlocked you are still bound by the terms for tethering with ATT - you have a tethering capable plan or you get changed to one if you do not, overseas depends on the terms set by the carrier over there that you get the sim from - if they charge extra for tethering you pay it or don;t tether. Absolutely nothing changes except for the fact you can put a foreign sim im the phone and get service from another compatible carrier

You can use any carrier you want. You can use your phone off AT&T. That's it.

 

On AT&T, you are bound by the terms of your service. So no, you can't do anything different other than shove a different sim in and use it.

have seen a lot of things that are "standard" in the times I travel your country - there is no "standard" for any form of unlock here in the states, there are other requirements also besides the "24 months". Before Apr 8 there was no way to unlock a att iphone. You are late, there are already peope moaning about the required steps to unlock one
