iPhone rant

My contract with AT&T is up. Now I have an iPhone (that's fully paid for) that I want to use in Europe.

On the phone, AT&T says that Apple is in charge of unlocking.

Apple says that "some carriers" will unlock the iPhone, but AT&T says that it "cannot" be unlocked but will help you with an overseas contract that costs $200/month for data streaming.

F... that.*

Time for jailbreak. Any suggestions?
* The economics of this are simple. AT&T gets more money if the phone cannot be unlocked. Apple is happy to oblige, for some of that money.
