Yes i have, Tracfone will have to provide an update to fix the issue. Reason is that everytime you enter the code its accepted. But as soon as you reboot the phone it asks for the code again. So not sure how tracfone will handle this.

Well I returned my $250 Black Friday special as I just have no faith in getting an unlock code for these Galaxy S4s as I wanted to use it on AT&T and I had picked up the Tmobile version. I'll have to settled for a used item instead.

Anyone know of a pay site to unlock this device. The one legit one was for over seas and I'm in US. I tried offering straight talk money and they said this phone needs to be active for 5 more months before they'll provide me the unlock code. I guess you need 12 months of active service to be eligible for the unlock program. The only thing is, is it will only work on a straight talk T-Mobile Sim until then. Tia.

It DOES work. I installed the wikid v8 rom on a SHG-S970G this morning, opened region lock, unlocked modem, relocked modem rebooted, and entered my unlock code and BAM, Successful unlock. Thanks a grand! By the way i bought the unlock code on a 3rd party site. Im now running ATT on the phone.

Straighttalk will only unlock phones purchased on or after Dec 2013, currently active on ST Service & have been active for 12 consecutive months, if you call the unlock department you will be transferred to their automated information center if your phone is not eligible for unlocking, this is just to inform you of the requirements to unlock your device.

ST unlock
I've had mine 6 months... Called them 5 times and they told me everytime they couldn't unlock my phone (sgh s970g). So.. I used CHIMURA to root for free. Installed the m919 twrp for recovery. Installed wikid v8 using twrp installed regionlockaway locked the modem rebooted, entered my unlock code and it gave me a successful unlock. As stated I'm running a Straighttalk AT&T sim on mine.
