..and Blackberry Bold 9000…whatever those are.

According to a Consumerist Report, AT&T just settled a class action lawsuit by allowing any pre or post paid customer to unlock their AT&T phones unless that phone is bound by a 10+ month exclusivity agreement. 

Yeah, that means just about every phone they sell except Apple’s iPhone.  Verbiage below.

1) Customers with postpaid accounts who have completed a minimum of 90 days of active service and are in good standing and current in their payments.

(2) Customers with prepaid accounts who have provided a detailed receipt or other proof of purchase of the handset.

(3) Customers who own handsets for which AT&T has an exclusive sales arrangement with a manufacturer of less than 10 months will have to wait until the 10-month period expires before they can receive an unlocking code.

If you want to opt out of the settlement or object to it, you have until June 4, 2010 to post mark your filing. The final approval hearing will be held July 2, 2010. For more information, visitwww.attlockinglawsuits.com.
