On the main atf site their is an add for their nitro product on top of a Lumia 900 Cyan. Should we be looking at the groups that Flash unlock phones more than the ones that just get the codes from the carriers?

Thanx for the offer, but I am located in Chicago. I purchased the phone for my relative from Odessa and I really did ask in the store if it will work on another networks. If it would be an IPhone it will be cracked much faster, but since it has only 1.7 or 2% of market share i assume it will take a while to get it working ourselves.

Fact is that I am not that dumb to buy something which for sure doesn't work. I did ask before doing that. I never used AT&T and never will so I didn't have a chance to know that they are blocking phones at full price too. My problem is that they told me they will not lock it and it was very normal way to do business from my point of view too. ANd a week later i figured that it actually doesn't work. Misinforming me to make a sale is a legal basis for me to sue them. Problem is that even in small claim court with all the fees and expenses it's not really price efficient to do that. Probably i will just have to wait for it to be cracked.[COLOR="Silver"]

I think it's a good idea to find somebody who flash unlocks. Do we know who came up with HTC Titan 2 unlock software? It can be pretty similar with Lumia. Maybe the best thing to do is to get those guys involved and support them with whatever needed for this.

oops. Found the software for TItan. It says Olipro from xda. Maybe we should ask him for help I PMd him. Let see if he could help somehow

What is unfortunate is two people from the same company stating completely contradictory policies. I submit to you and the rest of the forum we truly don't know what at&t's policy is... if they even have one. Multiple people have come on this forum and said after contacting at&t they were told different things. That's the problem!

I agree on it. If they told me that the phone will not work anywhere else do you think I'll buy it? I was not told about any policies etc. So I can't know about it.

I'm not sure what they're doing exactly, but they appear to be using an "Advance Flash Turbo" to flash the Lumia 900 with new firmware... Maybe they can unlock it too.

Slightly off-topic. Which Ukrainian operators have micro SIM's? I usually use life but last I checked their micro SIM's only work in iPads and iPhones.

Since they are using the noka ROMS my guess would be they are using the DLL's that come with the nokia care suite. Just a guess, not bashing.

Edit:
I believe I stand corrected. These guys look like the real deal. They also appear to have a hardware component to the flasher/unlocker that is for sale overseas.

Now we are cooking with GAS. We just need a developer with an ATF and I think we can get this done without AT&T

Don't worry, operator who claim their MicroSIM only works with iThings are bull****ting They will work in Lumia and any other MicroSIM phone as well. Those phones just don't habe the name...
