    So i had my new iphone 4 on airplane mode most of the weekend, cuz i was in a no signal area for most of the weekend. and when i set it back to regular, right under notifications tab/menu, a Carriers tab/menu popped up, i clicked it and it said automatic, and was loading the rest of the list, but i clicked back to get a screenshot, and it dissappeared, as it was connected to AT&T now, is it possible, all iphone are really hardware/software unlocked, but depending on certain things, it makes this option no visble? well the Carriers tab was definatly real, can we find a way to unlock this menu?

    Edit: Oh, i guess i figured out how to get it to show again

    Apparently AT&T has some "roaming" agreements with T-Mobile or others. If you can't get an AT&T tower's signal, it'll let you go onto another network until AT&T is available again.
    It's not an unlock of any sort, though unlocked phones with T-Mobile SIMs often show this menu permanently. T-Mobile SIMs still won't work in your phone, and you're still paying AT&T

    i was just wondering when an unlock is released, that they could include a all carriers bundles, and then you could just select it from the menu or something, just showing a feature no one has seen i think

    No, it's been there for a while and a lot of people have seen it.
