[Q] Trying to get a definitive answer on unlocking
I know there are similar threads here already, but they have all died before resolution. I am trying to unlock my Cincinnati Bell XT720. There seem to be two issues that may affect this: 1. locked bootloader; 2. Cincinnati Bell IMEIs for the XT720 do not appear on 'the list' (I'm not sure what that means).
Yes, I know there are commercial unlockers, and I have used them in the past on other phones. I would love to use one now! But the fact is, they cannot provide codes that work. Some of them will supply a code, and they say 'we have given you the correct code', but it does not work.
Can anyone speak authoritatively on CinBell XT720s? Social engineering does not work. CinBell does not provide unlock codes for any reason, even after 90 days, even after the entire contract...heck, they won't even give out codes for free dumbphones.
I am the original purchaser of my phone, and have paid for it in full. It's mind boggling that I cannot use it as I wish. This is especially discouraging because it roams great on Tmobile, with very fast data speeds.
Thanks for any information.
