Michael Capozzi has discovered and posted a step-by-step guide detailing "how to unlock the iPhone 4S" without any software or hardware tweaking.

The guide is reportedly for AT&T version of iPhone 4S.

The unlock will works with the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, and will need to be done again if you reset your device.

The unlock will also assist you in using your iPhone 4S on T-Mobile's network as long as you have a T-Mobile SIM card. Before you get started, go ahead and cut down your T-Mobile SIM card to match your AT&T SIM card's size.
