The first condition which you have to meet in order to be eligible for the iPhone 4 baseband 4.11.08 unlock is that your contract period with AT&T is over. This means that if your iPhone 4 is under a contract or a term commitment with AT&T, then you will not be able to get the iPhone unlock.
It could happen that you bought the iPhone from someone who paid an early termination fee. If that’s the case, then your iPhone is eligible for the free unlock. So, if you are unsure about it, then just ask the previous owner if he or she has paid the early termination fee or not.
