Default Unlock Network/SIM AT&T

Hi,

I have the AT&T model, stock ROM.

I am about to travel abroad. Called to AT&T to unlock. In the past, as long as I have used the phone for 60 days, that's no problem. However, they said the policy changed 18 months ago and they won't unlock the phone for free until the contract matures.

Is there any way to unlock Moto X for free?

Thanks

Free, no. But for somewhere around $10 to $20 you should be able to get it unlocked from any of the online merchants selling "SIM-Unlock" codes.

You will need a NON-AT&T Sim. When you place the NON-AT&T sim in the phone, it will prompt you for the unlock code. You will enter the code provided by the online merchant, and if correct, it will be unlocked and you'll be all set.

Several users have reported success, but a few have reported that the code provided to them did not work. All you can do is try.

WARNING: If you enter an incorrect unlock code too many times, it triggers a LOCK-OUT and the phone will be permanently locked to AT&T and you will never be able to unlock it.

Good Luck

Looking for a new carrier? Check out Republic Wireless!
Plans starting at $10 for unlimited talk/text and $25 with unlimited data.
Use this link to save $20. RW is my carrier and I couldn't be happier with them.


I successfully CRACKED the SIM-LOCK on the Sprint XT1056 Moto X. Read about it HERE
