AT&T Must provide its customers with Unlocking Codes!!!

You are a class member if you have or had an AT&T Wireless, Cingular Wireless, and/or AT&T Mobility individual account and you purchased, directly or from an indirect retailer, a wireless handset other than an Apple iPhone for use with AT&T Wireless, Cingular Wireless, and/or AT&T Mobility service from March 12, 1999 to April 2, 2010.

The lawsuits claim that the sale of handsets by AT&T Wireless, Cingular and AT&T Mobility that have been programmed not to operate with other compatible wireless telephone carriers’ services is improper and that this restriction has not been properly disclosed to customers. AT&T Wireless, Cingular and AT&T Mobility deny any wrongdoing, but have agreed to settle to avoid the cost and expense of further litigation. The Courts have not made a decision in these cases. 


AT&T Mobility agrees to give to its eligible AT&T Wireless, Cingular and AT&T Mobility current and former customers, upon request and where available, codes that unlock AT&T Wireless, Cingular and AT&T Mobility handsets other than (i) the Apple iPhone; or (ii) any handset that AT&T Mobility introduces or has introduced for sale pursuant to a contract with a handset manufacturer that provides for an exclusivity period of ten (10) months or longer (“AT&T Handset”). Unlock codes for AT&T Handsets will be provided to eligible postpaid customers who have completed a minimum of ninety (90) days of active service with AT&T
Wireless, Cingular or AT&T Mobility and who are in good standing and current in their payments at the
time of the request. For AT&T Handsets for which AT&T Mobility has an exclusive sales arrangement
with a manufacturer of less than 10 months, the period of exclusivity associated with that sale must have expired before an unlocking code can be obtained. AT&T Mobility will provide unlocking codes for AT&T Handsets upon request to eligible prepaid subscribers who provide a detailed receipt or other proof of purchase of the handset. Customers may request five unlock codes per year. The settlement also provides attorneys’ fees and expenses of up to $5.7 million.
