I am going to try this guy here in Houston that says he can unlock it. Not sure how they can do it when no one else can but they are the leading shop in Houston for unlocks. I will keep this thread posted on if they simply can or if they fail miserably like everyone else.

If he gets it to work....you may want to PM people...for fear of the unlock nazi's wrath!!!

I just got off the phone with Nokia and the rep said that I would have to get a developer account from Microsoft and then AT&T would unlock my device. I don't know how true this is but he said that this will work. I asked him to confirm this and he repeated this 3 times

I'm fairly sure this is not true. I have friends at Microsoft working in Windows Phone. They can't get their phones unlocked either. I just checked with one of them, DEV unlock does not carrier unlock. AT&T would not know if you are DEV unlocked or not.

Don't fall for it.

Just dropped it off to him and he said they have done several already, but its a software based unlock and not a subsidy type. I'm giving it a whirl since I hate seeing this phone act as a 450 dollar paper weight. It is suppose to be done tomorrow and will cost me $70 bucks if successful.

They said if I provide AT&T with a developer account that they will carrier unlock it for me

Good luck! Would suck for everyone else NOT in Houston if they succeeded.

Have dev account aswell, will try soon. <- Just rang ATT they said that this is not the case, Nokia has sent no unlock codes, no special exceptions (i.e. developer account) reiterating a release of October 2012 for the codes !
