iPhone unlockers beware
I know some folks hate the idea of being tied to AT&T for voice and mobile data service and several companies have sprung up that will unlock your iPhone SIM via software. However, even though you have unlocked your iPhone and gotten a contract with a different mobile carrier than AT&T, Apple can (and will) release software updates that will break the unlock and render your iPhone useless. Of course, you still need to pay for that 'other' mobile carrier service even though your beloved iPhone can't use the service.
So, buyer beware in this case and be prepared to what might (will) happen to you if you choose this route for your iPhone.
Just sayin' I told you so. ;-)
