You can buy a no-contract iPhone straight from AT&T. Unlocking is free and the code is provided by AT&T upon request.
Important part in BOLD:
By locking down customer iPhone to protect AT&T's original exclusive right to sell the device, the lawsuit insists, Apple violated rights within the DMCA allowing consumers the right to modify devices they purchased, or use the network of their choice.
They only recently started offering the option to unlock iPhones. I should have been able to take my original iPhone to T-mobile after my contractual obligations were met.
I'm not really sure who's at fault (AT&T or Apple).--
