hello there people im here to lighten youre day ... well to the case... i just spent the last 6 hours trying to find out how to sim unlock my phone i did all the root and unlocking processes but havent had a result because rooting and unlocking the bootloader are DIFFERENT than SIM-UNLOCKING the phone (just to make things clear) ... but through deep investigation i got interesting information about people telling that AT&T supplies the code for FREE just asking for it... so i called this number: 1-877-737-2478 and called first it was a women that didnt really helped and just closed on me, i called again then a guy atended me first asking about the AT&T number which i DONT have so i just told him i needed some information about free unlock codes of the motorola ATRIX 4G and he kindly took my IMEI and gave me the code TOTALLY FREE so there it is... here are the steps to SIM-UNLOCK youre MOTOROLA ATRIX 4G FOR FREE!!!!!.

1-IMEI of youre MOTOROLA ATRIX 4G
2- call costumer support of AT&T 1-877-737-2478 the option you will need is "0"
3- just ask about the free unlock codes they are giving for the phone
4- wait a couple of minutes.
5- if they give you the code enter it in youre phone
6- cross youre fingers
7- dance!!!!!!!!!!!!!

in case they wont help you i guess you just have to call back i guess they have like more than 100+ employees so youre bound to bump with someone who is willing to give it to you... you DONT need to be an AT&T exclusive customer just ask kindly what you need and theyl help you .

ENJOY!!!! please like this post and sticky it since its my first real usefull post here at XDA.

PS: I dont know if this post is already made but i checked more than 20 post people asking questions so ths thread is more of a solution sorry if i broke a law or something just mail me if i need to mod something cheers... and enjoy youre phone!!!!!

PS: PS for you who are asking i live in DOMINICAN REPUBLIC and my SIM carrier is CLARO RD and i called from skype to have no cost at all so i guess there are no restrictions when it comes to unlocking youre phone .

Yep, this info is nothing new. I don't know about ATT, but this same method didn't help me with my Verizon Droid 2 Global.

I called three times and all of those times they told me I need to be a Verizon customer.

Besides, they have CRM to store customer contacts in the database. If you try to contact them too many times it will show up on their records and they might think you are pulling some kind of a scam.

I just called AT&T in the US and told them I was visiting another country for a few days. If you're a customer in good standing (no unpaid bills), they'll unlock the phone for you.

Still Works, Different Phone Number
I called the phone number that is posted on the original message, and I was told to call customer service.
1-800-331-0500
From there I put in my phone number and option 0 until I talked to someone.
I was given the unlocking code without any problem and was even told the AT&T website to deal with my wife's IPhone

I haven't tried the code yet, just hoping that it will all work out

This does not work anymore. AT&T changed and restricted their unlock procedure A LOT. See here.
