Let me get this straight... If I buy a phone off EBay that is not stolen, as the new owner I cannot request an unlock code from ATT unless I sign up with them for at least 6 months??!! That is what I was told today anyhow. Of course I was told something completely different by them before I purchased the phone. They suggested calling the seller and asking them to request the unlock code (with their account number, phone number, etc). But this is not possible since the company selling boughts from somene else.
So,I searched all over here and have not found a clear answer on how or if you can unlock the phone using ther methods.
I have tried the following:
*#27663368378# method, does not allow
*#0011# method, does not go to UMTS menu
*#197328640#* method, does go to UMTS menu, but Phone Control Option is not there.
Is it possible to unlock the phone? It is my phone now. I could return it, but that seems silly.
How do or can sites offering paid unlock codes get theirs? There has to be a way. RIGHT???
