1. Download and install drivers if you haven't done it yet
http://www.UnlockClient.com/SAMSUNG_USB_Driver.exe
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.

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

same here, they gave me t he code for 2 SII but won't give me the code for the Note, ATT said I have to wait until end of Aug since this phone is still New!

i got really mad at them since I really need to use it and i think it is not fair that I have to pay to unlock my own phone! I told them that I am willing to pay security deposit or whatever if they won't trust that I would come back from my trip with the phone but they still didn't. At the end and to make me happy they offered me the Unlimited calling and texting for my family plan for free for six months (it is a $30/month package)
Galaxy Note (i717)

In the field towards the top.

I also used this service after getting refunds from two others. This one worked!

You can unlock your phone yourself for free!
Just call up AT&T, Tmobile, or whoever your carrier is.
Provide your IMEI number.
They will provide you with the unlock code for no charge!
Take care!

What planet are you on? Here on Earth the carriers won't give out the code for at least six months after the phone is on the market.
