You're screwed for now, ATT is locked down until they crack it. Same with Verizon.

Screwed in which way? I could still purchase an unlock code for it and use it on ATT. I would like to avoid that if there is another way though.

If your phone is network locked, then flashing a new ROM will not unlock it, as it is the IMEI that is network locked, not the firmware on the phone.

I got my phone from Vodafone UK and unlocked it the next day using a code from www.unlockunit.com. Cost about $25. I did not have to root / flash the phone, as I simply put in a SIM card from a network other than the one my phone is locked to and the phone asked me for an unlock code.

I have no idea if ATT firmware will stop working once you unlock your phone. but I can confirm that the Vodafone UK firmware on my phone is still working fine.

Hope this helps. If so, please hit thanks button

I've used this site before:

http://www.cellunlocker.net

I don't know if it'll work on all carriers in North America, but you can plug in your details on the site to check before you buy a code.

Took about 4 hours to get my code.

I used this site as well, cost me $15 and took about 5 hours to receive the code.
