If you bought it directly from Amazon, you can call them and ask for the unlock code (not sure if they'll give it to you, but it's worth a try). AT&T will usually unlock the phones as long as you've completed your 2-year contract. If you bought it from AT&T then you may have more difficulty, because they require that you have had an AT&T account in good standing for at least 6 months before they will unlock a phone (even if you buy the phone without a contract). Your best bet there is to find a friend with AT&T service and ask them to take it to the store to unlock.

If they give you trouble, you might ask them "what if I am going to travel internationally?" - Sometimes unlock code are given out to people who will be traveling internationally so that they can avoid roaming charges by purchasing pre-paid SIMs where they travel.


If any of these methods work for you, let us know. I am considering purchasing one myself.

I bought the Amazon Fire Phone as well and I got AT&T to unlock it. Find a friend with AT&T and have him go to the AT&T device request form and fill out the form. Within a few hours they will send a code. You need to have the SIM from another carrier in there when you do it. While the invalid SIM is in there, start up the phone and they'll ask for a code. If you want, try 12629711.

I tried posting a link to the AT&T device unlock request site, but I'm too new of a user, so you gotta Bing it.
