Unfortunately, I upgraded my Ativ S with the official Rom GDR3 without first unlocked phone.
I seem to have realized that it is not possible to unlock with this new Rom
You could downgrade to the original Rom GDR2 and then unlock the phone?
What procedure I could follow?
Thanks

no. immediately check the indicated topic. thanks

Also, look here. There's a link to Russian GDR2 (you can easily change country CSC code after flashing the Russian ROM via SamWP8 Tools). Also, here's the link to windowsmania forum with a GDR3 ROM.

Just a note, when flashing ROM using Flashing tool, don't forget to specify the CSC code. Dunno why, but I HAD to specify my original CSC code in the flashing tool to successfully flash my phone. My phone was imported from Hungary and had XEH CSC code. So until I specified XEH in the drop-down box within the flashing tool, I've been getting partition mismatch errors. Once I set XEH, flashing went flawless.

Of course possible! Just reflash it to gdr1 or 2.

*#1234# in diagnosis doesn't work?

Nope. Blocked in retail GDR3. My MOID is 000-AT (default)
