   So you noticed iCloud/cloud difference in my quoting. Okay. But why are you ignoring the direct quote "stream purchased content from the iTunes Store" ? It doesn't fit your previous statements ? The article only mentions direct streaming iTunes-puchased content, nothing about direct streaming third-party content such as Netflix.
   Oh, I've read that article. Carefully. It just says that the enhancement will allow AirPlay to control ATV to "stream purchased content from the iTunes Store" (such as iTunes video) directly from the iCloud. Obviously, iCloud doesn't have Netflix videos... The article doesn't say anything about third party content.

I said some people getting this matter resolved within the same day. I then was transfered to a manager... I hoped manager would say something different, But no, the manager repeated exactly the same thing, and said she can't do anything to speed up the process. I'm now going to call them...
When I called Sunday morning, I pressed "Technical Help" menu option and talked a rep. She asked me for IMEI number, created a "case" which later would be forwarded to "Unlocking Dept" and said someone would contact me within 5-7 business days. She also asked for my email. So far I did not get any emails from ATT. My phone is 3GS, out of contract and not active. I do not remember whether I bought it through Apple or ATT. I really need to have it unlocked by Friday, because...
