    Not as of yet.

    Some are mentioning AT&T won't do it for 10mos because of exclusivity.

    From what I saw, that's not a true unlock - that sounds like one of the TurboSIM thingies. You put whatever SIM you wish to use in their carrier, and then insert the combination into the SIM socket.

    In other words, even after using that thingie, you can't remove the whole shebang, and pop in a Rogers SIM by itself...

    So although it will work, the phone is technically not unlocked. You're just bypassing the carrier subsidy lock with the unlock SIM card/carrier.
