An internal document leaked to 9to5Mac reveals that Apple has decided to change the policy from 30 days to 14 days effective March 13th. Notably, Apple.com already reflects this change. The 30 day policy used to apply to iPhones purchased from Apple Retail Stores or its Online Store. Apple is making the change in an effort to have one universal return policy across all products and to match the 14 day policy of most carriers.
We’ve just received word of a spicy strategy change, to be enacted this Sunday, that’s sure to please the AT&T iPhone-loving masses. On Easter, select Ma’ Bell customers with iPhones — those off-contract with accounts in good standing — will be able to request a carrier unlock for their device. Once freed, any micro-SIM can be used — provided its carrier’s frequencies are supported — by the smartphone. An AT&T spokesperson was able to confirm that “a policy change concerning iPhones” would indeed be rolled-out on Sunday, but declined to elaborate further. That sound you hear? International Love, being quietly spun from the corner office of Ralph de la Vega.
