Can you 'Officially' unlock an iPhone 4 to use on any network?
As per title, I remember when the iPhones came out and had a carrier exclusive for a long time, you couldn't get them unlocked without the fear of Apple threatening to brick your device, so has all this changed now with multiple carriers selling the phone? I'm in the UK if that makes any difference?
I don't really want to Jailbreak the phone, so an officially accepted solution is what I'm looking for?

Sprint and VZW both use CDMA, but Sprint doesn't (or at least didn't) activate devices that were not sold by Sprint.
AT&T and T-Mobile both use GSM, but they use different frequencies for their 3G service... so you can use the iPhone on T-Mobile (after you hack up the SIM to fit in the iPhone), but you will never get 3G speeds... EDGE is the best you can hope for in that situation.
