Very true I tried and they did tell me 30 days and I can get the unlock code... I was able to get it for my SII though.

It's rizig, not rigiz, and he enjoys 99.5% positive out of 205 feedbacks in the last 12 months. I'll try him as soon as my local BestBuy has one in Carbon Blue.

If you're trying to find that user, you can search "ebay username" in google. You will get their store.

Make sure if you're using any of those, that they offer a money back guarantee. So far the inexpensive methods have failed to locate the code for the Note in their database. Don't forget you have an "attempt" counter, if you reach the limit, the phone may become carrier "hardlocked".

Example of pricing I have found; 1-$10 cheap & easy (result varies greatly, mostly fails, instant delivery), $20-35 harder method (usually successful unless the carrier has edited the unlock code, takes a few hours-days), and $70~ manufacturer unlock (usually 4 different unlock codes, which may recover hardlocked, may take a week). YMMV

Hope that helps,


EDIT: That seller has replied to my inquiry of how much it would cost, if he is able to obtain the unlock code for an AT&T US SGH-i717 and how long it would take. "Around $26.00 and 8-24 hours"

A request dialog box should appear after installing a SIM from a carrier that the phone is not locked to after rebooting.

I used "unlockclient com" these guys/gals (whatever) use some software you download to your computer. I checked it via Avast! (sandbox) to make sure it was clean. You plug in your phone via the data cable and follow the instructions:

1. Download and install drivers if you haven't done it yet
2. Take out memory card and SIM card and turn your phone on
3. Go to Menu > Settings > Applications > Development
4. Switch on the option "USB Debugging"
5. Go to dialer, type *#7284# and select USB -> Modem
6. Go to dialer, type *#9090# and select [1] USB
7. Exit service menu and turn your phone off by pressing power button
8. Insert NOT accepted SIM card and turn the phone on
9. Wait for "Enter Network Lock Control Key" message
10. Connect phone to computer and wait until all drivers are installed (~1 min)
11. Unplug the usb cable and plug it back
12. Enter your paypal email or test the connection for free first
13. When you feel ready, Click "Unlock" button

The software detects the IMEI. I took the risk of losing $25 to some scam. Boy was I wrong... The software verifies that you have paid them via paypal then does something to the phone via the data cable. At the end you have to enter 00000000 and boom unlocked.

Rebooted in my T-Mobile card and works. Now I have to flash the modem.

My AT&T (I717) phone was already rooted and on 2.3.6.
