Is it true if you buy the curve for full retail, no contract at a cingular store here in california they have to unlock it for you no matter what?

It will not have to be unlocked if you are using it with a Cingular account. If you intend to put a TMo SIM in it, the yes you will need to have it unlocked.

I think the OP is asking about the *law* portion of this deal, we recently passed some sort of "cell providers must allow unlocking" resolution/law in California. I am also curious if AT&T/Cingular is legally required to give me an unlock code if I'm *not* a customer?
