This is a little more pulled from the documents....
ARE YOU AFFECTED?
You are a class member if you have or had an AT&T Wireless, Cingular Wireless, and/or AT&T Mobility individual account and you purchased, directly or from an indirect retailer, a wireless handset other than an Apple iPhone for use with AT&T Wireless, Cingular Wireless, and/or AT&T Mobility service from March 12, 1999 to April 2, 2010.

WHAT DOES THE SETTLEMENT PROVIDE?
AT&T Mobility agrees to give to its eligible AT&T Wireless, Cingular and AT&T Mobility current and former customers, upon request and where available, codes that unlock AT&T Wireless, Cingular and AT&T Mobility handsets other than (i) the Apple iPhone; or (ii) any handset that AT&T Mobility introduces or has introduced for sale pursuant to a contract with a handset manufacturer that provides for an exclusivity period of ten (10) months or longer (“AT&T Handset”).

From what that is saying, unless I'm missing something, even the iPhone must be unlocked after 10 months, but all others will have to wait either 90 days or have proof of purchase for it to be unlocked. So basically the only thing that has changed is that if the phone is an exclusive phone, such as the iPhone, then you have to wait 10 months to be able to unlock it. The other 2 items were policy already, as I have already unlocked many phones through AT&T over the years!
