It’s Time for the Promised, Unlocked iPhone 3Gs

Back in July, AT&T promised that they'd sell unlocked iPhone 3Gs at full price. A half year later, that promise has gone unfulfilled. It's time for AT&T to act.

Just before the iPhone 3G launched, AT&Ts CEO Randall Stephenson announced that it would sell 8 GB iPhone 3Gs unlocked for US$599 and the 16 GB model for $699.

While that's not a terribly attractive price for many, the fact is that there are many people who, for whatever reason, would like to have an iPhone 3G, but need to be with a different carrier.

Of course, Apple and AT&T would like to encourage as many people as possible to sign up for two year contracts before they allow potential customers to escape to another carrier. Even so, the promise was made.

iPO contacted AT&T spokesperson Mark Siegel about the matter, and the most he would say was an abbreviated: "We haven't announced a date yet."

It may be that there are potential customers yet to be seduced into a two year contract, especially those targeted by the rumors of a low-cost iPhone at Wal-Mart, but that has to be weighed against the needs of other Apple customers as well as corporate promises.

It's time for AT&T to fulfill its commitment.
