Hi
On ebay one excellent condition moto x is listed.its xt1058 model.I am from india and planning to buy this.But can i unlock it?if i can, will all the functions work after unlocking?also will i receive all moto x updates on this?Or if there are any other problem i can face after unlocking a phone,please elaborate.?
One more question in my mind why mint conditions carrier locked phone are available in larger quantitites in usa.Is something fishy about these phones?
Seller has large quantities like 30 phones to sell all mint conditions xt1058 at and t models.From where such phones come in large quantities?

If its an ATT XT1058 it can be SIM unlocked, but not Bootloader unlocked (unless you can use the Chinese Website/MiddleMan).

The other questions, I can't answer.

[Q] huh? Belongs in "Q & A" section. Sorry, not trying to be an ass. Rules are rules...that's one of the simplest.

I have no first-hand experience buying sim-unlock codes, so I can't recommend one personally. If you search the Moto X forums, there are a few different ones mentioned that users claim to work.

While SIM locked, you can only use ATT SIMs in the phone. After you SIM unlock you can use the SIM from other GSM carriers. I do no know what GSM and LTE bands your carrier uses, so I can't speak to how well the ATT XT1058 will work on your carrier once SIM unlocked.

I don't know if you will receive updates with the ATT XT1058 when using it on a different carrier.

There are many sources on the internet selling the SIM unlock code for ATT Moto X (XT1058).

Bootloader unlocking allows you to easily root and disable write protection, as well as flash 3rd party or "after market" recoveries and roms. There is only one source for Bootloader unlock code for the ATT XT1058, and that is in the Chinese Website/Middleman threads in the general section here.
