In this article we'll show you how to unlock your iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus for free from the AT&T website in 2018. The device must be paid off and in good standing. Good standing means that the iPhone 8 has not been reported lost/stolen or has been paid off. It's possible to unlock your iPhone even if it's still under contract or has not been paid off.
If you bought your iPhone from a friend or a third party seller, you'll need to make sure the device hasn't been reported lost or stolen. The following link is a post we wrote on how to check if your phone has been reported lost or stolen.
AT&T would only unlock your phone if the iPhone has been paid off. If not AT&T won't allow you to unlock AT&T iPhone. Make sure the balance on the iPhone is cleared or you won't be able to benefit from this free AT&T unlock method.
