AT&T or apple WILL NOT UNLOCK YOUR IPHONE 4S. this has been posted some many times for the 3G,3GS, and the iphone 4.  they will not do it... next month apple is going to start selling  a unlocked iphone 4s.

Sorry for the terse nature of this response but NO ATT will not unlock your new iPhone 4S.  At the current time, they will not unlock any iPhone regardless of how long you have had it!  If you would have waited until November, you could have purchased an unlocked GSM iPhone 4S directly from Apple at an unsubsidize price.

 

If you search these forums, you will see this disucssed in full with all possible scenarios played out.

 

ATT may change their policy in the future but your box should also have a notice that that iPHone only works on the ATT network.

 

Search Google for other methods!

No. AT&T iphones are sold locked and neither AT&T nor Apple will unlock them. There are many threads on this. Currently, only Apple sells unlocked iPhones in the US and they are specifically sold as new and unlocked.

Out of curiosity, if you work in Italy, why did you buy a US iPhone? Why not buy one in Italy?

I guess my question is if this was such an important feature, why you did not ask about unlocking before making your purchase?  What I would do is return your iPHone 4S and cancel your ATT contract or revert to your old phone.  Wait for the unloced model to be sold by Apple here in the next few weeks then get that version to meet your needs.  At this point, there is no need for you to be locked into an ATT only phone with high roaming fees.

Apple is already selling the iPhone 4S unlocked model in a few select stores here in the US. You would just have to call in to the Apple stores in your area to find out if any of them are one of the ones that are already selling them.
