Default Unlock U.S. Cellular model

So I have ample experience here on XDA however, never had the need to unlock a phone.
A friend who has a U.S. Cellular model sch-r960 loves her Mega, but she just moved and now has no service. She has an ATT tower real close and I wondered if there is a way to unlock it. A valid proven way.
I have searched other threads which state they can unlock, but nobody claims actual valid success. One response is "inbox me"??? I am sure its just bad english, but if the terminology is that far off, what else is that far off?

Also saw a website for cell unlocker, guaranteeing success??
Skeptical.......can anyone validate?

I saw that site. Hard to trust sites like that, unless you get some kind of success recommendation. Trying to look up her imei, but says invalid. Ours are 15 digits, she only gives me 14.

AT&T is gsm
US Cellular is CDMA

I don't think it will work.

US Cellular does have a simcard for their 4G but not sure if it can be hacked to work on AT&T's gsm network.
