Not the case.
Apparently I have to be more clear, I never said I had the phone for a year. My contract was cancelled (even though I had a 2 yr contract) because I am in the military stationed overseas. So yes I DO meet all the requirements according to ATT themselves, not me. ATT never stated that you had have purchased the phone at their store to have it unblocked. I called Apple, and according to them only ATT can unlock it. So yes I did read the qualifications clearly and my thread is correct, unless YOU (birdmantd) have a solution to this thread do not reply.
