[Q] Sim unlock codes from tmobile didn't work, can gfree unlock after 3 attempts?
I requested a sim unlock code from tmobile, and I received it. I entered it twice with a non-tmobile sim, and both times, the code was rejected by my my Mytouch 4G.
I'm since asked t-mobile to recheck the code (IMEI was correct). They said they would, but that they couldn't guarantee that they could send me an accurate code.
I understand after 3 attempts, it permanently locks. I have one left.
I understand I could use gfree method to sim unlock. It will take some effort to reflash back to older roms, etc.
If I try a 3rd time and cause my phone to lock out further attempts, will the gfree method still allow me to unlock?
I would rather simply deal with codes, but if I risk permanently blocking the ability to unlock my phone, then I'll give go the gfree route instead of trying again.
