Just so everyone with a T-Mo variant is aware. Calling T-Force does still work. Tell them that you are a developer for work and need access to the bootloader unlock which is tied to the device unlock. As long as you are s good standing customer and the rep feels they can trust you, you're golden. Took me about 5 minutes

I tried T-Mobile help on twitter, they said no... This was before I saw this. I said I traveled a lot and had always had unlocked phones and that they had done it before, but they said no this time.

Currently chatting with sprint and they're trying to find a way to unlock bootloader without unlocking sim lol. Who knows though. There 2 different systems so maybe.

Would an imei unlock type thing work?

Is this just to skip the 40-day thing or do they also unlock devices still on EIP?

Cool, thanks. I'll try tomorrow. What excuse did you use? (Travel? Dev?)
"I'm a developer for work, and the bootloader unlock is something I need and is why I bought a OnePlus. I was not aware T-Mobile locked this feature. The bootloader unlock is tied to the SIM unlock. Can we sim unlock it to give me access to the bootloader unlock? I'm not planning on leaving or going anywhere obviously. But this is just a feature I REALLY need"

Is essentially what I said.

If you got 1/2 off, you may loose the discount by paying it off early.

I'm just going to bring some bagels and coffee to my new buds at the local T-Mobile store.

Can the T-Mobile KB2007 be rooted yet?

I'll definitely have to try this. Because I have the regular 8 coming in on Tuesday.

    I'm working on the requests I've gotten now just having some technical problems with the new mobile app. Sorry for the delay guys, things have been insane with the holidays.

    Can you guys resend your requests? I know I have a few I was able to find but with this new app update I seem to have lost some and was unable to login for a while.

    Edit: yeah, most of my conversations I had to leave because I don't know who I've already helped and who I haven't. Sorry for the inconvenience, I'm on mobile.

    If I haven't replied to your message yet it means it got lost in the abyss that is my inbox right now. I will need you to message me again with your info, or check to see if I unlocked it already and was unable to message you back on this new XDA app.

    If anyone needs their phone unlocked for T-Mobile let me know and I may be able to help, given you've had the phone on the network for at least 3 days.

    My inbox shows no unread messages. This new app is a hoot. If you haven't got a response, try to unlock your phone I may have backed out by accident because I can't reply between messages for a certain time frame. If it gives you an error code, get back to me so I can help you out.
