Unlocking a phone


Nov 6, 2007, 9:03 AM
I am under the impression that after recent court cases, AT & T is obligated to unlock a phone when requested to do so. Is this correct?

you can call up and request it.

jut say you are going to south america and need your phone unlocked.

they will put in the request and give you the code eventually.

then just dont go to south america

Generally this is true after your contract has ended.

I had my phone unlocked not too long into my contract. You just need to call up international care, tell them you're traveling abroad and that the group you are going with provides you with a sim card. It took about a day or two for them to call me back.

you know, selling people phones that suck and that you know suck should be fraud, if you ask me.

I called AT&T customer service this week and they unlocked two phones for me. No problem...
