Sim card permanently LOCK?
I got an unlock code for Galaxy S3 from TMO. I enter it and it didn't work. It said "network unlock request unsuccessful". I tried it for a couple times, wifi on, different carriers, the code still no good. Called TMO again and they said the code is correct verifying the IMEI. Anyone experience this? (It's on CM 10.2).
They also said my phone most likely permanently LOCKED the sim carrier!!! I was like WTF. I don't even know there's such thing. How is it possible the sim carrier being permanently locked.Now I'm stuck cuz they can only generate one code per IMEI (according to the rep). If I buy an unlock code online, will it work?
