I sent a 3rd message today. If the OP @mobbdeep does respond I will update everyone here but till date no response.
Double and triple check that you meet all requirements stated in the first post, and that you've included all 3 necessary details in your message. OP has previously commented that they may simply not reply to incomplete or invalid requests, instead of responding

Per the original post only account holder last name and phone # is required. I also gave imei, phone model details and also let know that it was purchased from a tmo store under a postpaid account. Even after all this it was simply ignored there's nothing else I can do. I believe all requirements /information has been met /provided.
If they need more info a simple response would have sufficed.

Nevertheless if I do get a response I'll come back and update here to give the OP proper credit.

I'm not saying that's what happened here. It does seem like you meet the requirements, and yes, you provided all 3 necessary items

Fair enough, I understand you were only trying to help and the only person who gave me a response. My issue is not them being able to unlock it. I don't know how they do the unlocking and it's possible there's something underlying with my account or phone preventing this. My account and plan is so old that even tmo reps have difficulty figuring out the features.
I only think it was appropriate that they provided a response either way.

All unlock requests have been completed. At this time, I am having some luck with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3. The same requirements apply. Must be purchased directly from T-Mobile, not unlocked or the T-Mobile variant from Samsung themselves. Also, it needs to be active on the network for more than 3 days.

The only time I "ignore" someone is if...

- They send me just an IMEI
- They say they bought it from eBay, FB, etc
- They're sending me a PM in a foreign language
- They're simply not with T-Mobile at all
- They're asking unlock their bootloader
- They're asking for irrelevant advice

Other than that, you would have gotten a response in 1-3 days based on how busy I am. I don't remember if I sent you a reply or not but if you feel you were truly ignored and you don't fall under any of the things I said above, then send me another PM.

I got a response from you today and the phone is unlocked now. Thank you very much. It did take a week or so.
I made a small donation in appreciation.

If this doesn't unlock bootloader, what is it exactly by chance?

Network unlock. The ability to take your phone to any other carrier without fulfilling T-Mobiles network lock restrictions (phone paid off and on their network for 45 days). Also, doesn't OnePlus provide the key to unlock their bootloader? You submit an online form and wait 7 days for them to give you the key.

For T-Mo OnePlus models, the "OEM Unlock" setting in Developer Options isn't available until the device is SIM unlocked, for whatever reason. That's probably the reason that you get so many OnePlus requests

Hey guys, rookie question here.
Would it be possible to sim unlock a phone if it is in roaming mode? Assuming I have a TMO postpaid line with international connectivity of course

    mobbdeep is a wizard! I requested that he unlock a phone about 18 months ago and again earlier this week. Both times, he granted my request successfully and courteously!

    I absolutely vouch for his ability to deliver this amazing service!!

    The first time I requested I was unable to donate and he treated me with the same respect he did this time around. Truly a stand-up person.

    Thank you!

    How long did it take him to reply? I messaged him about 36 hrs ago.

    Noob here, how do i send a pm?


    I wanna ask you what the unlocking procedures are after it's done.

    I've also sent a PM, waiting for the help! thanks in advance @mobbdeep

    I PM'd you on Thursday.

    This past weekend, I mentioned the unlock requests would be resumed Monday 10/4. Unfortunately, some things came up with work and me needing time to get settled into my new place, which is why they're still delayed. I have not forgotten about these requests. Trust me, when I get back on them, I have about 110 sitting in my inbox as we speak. You will get a reply as soon as I get them complete.

    Again, thank you all for your patience and understanding!

    I have disabled my private messages to prevent further backup of requests. I have about 170 of them to work on over the next few days. As I get closer to finishing those, I will enable my private messages again.

    Thanks for your patience!

    I appreciate the feedback and of course, donations are welcome and appreciated but not required nor will you be treated any differently. I'm just happy to be doing this a little over 3 years later and helping people out.

    Are you able to do the Samsung Galaxy Flip 3 test? Just wondering.

    It's 50/50. For some reason, one persons worked but then 2 others I tried didn't. I'm not entirely sure except maybe they're not fully registered in T-Mobile's device database which is where my tool pulls information from. Nonetheless, I can always try it and see.

    Also, right now, there's a bit of a delay on the unlock requests. I recently just moved so my PC is packed away. I should be back in service on Monday. Thank you for understanding!

    You don't have to worry about that, buddy. Same as you're not obliged to do any of this.
    you're helping us out and we sure appreciate your help and understand how difficult it is to help someone when you want, cause you can't always do it.

    Hello XDA,

    I am back at it again with the free T-Mobile network unlocks. Yep, you heard that right... 100% FREE. This service will allow you to go into your Settings and perform a network unlock. I've been doing this for over 2 years now with plenty of vouches, so yes, it's legit!

    ATTN: IF YOU DO NOT MEET THE BELOW REQUIREMENTS OR READ THIS ENTIRE THREAD, DO NOT PM ME AND WASTE OUR TIME. YOU WILL BE IGNORED!

    Current turnaround time:
    ~1-4 days depending on how busy I am. Yes, I have a life outside of this.

    Requirements:
    • Unlocking for T-Mobile OnePlus/Samsung/Google/LG/Moto USA variants only.
    • Not eligible for T-Mobile Prepaid, MetroPCS, or other TMO subsidies.
    • Not eligible for Sprint users even though they merged or you have a T-Mobile SIM card.
    • Device must be on the network for AT LEAST 3 full calendar days.
    • Cannot currently be flashed to any international firmware.
    • Device must be originally purchased from T-Mobile themselves. Not purchased via 3rd party.

    If you meet the above requirements, PM the last name of the account holder and your phone number associated with said device.

    Important Information:
    • Please keep in mind I get a lot of PM's regarding this so you will get a reply when yours has been completed. Do not send multiple requests.
    • If you make any SIM card changes, you will have to wait at least 3 days for me to be able to unlock your device.
    • Your device does NOT have to be paid off.
    • There is no 100% guarantee this will work. There could be a possibility of an unlock ineligibility.
    • The device MUST be one purchased directly from T-Mobile; NOT from OnePlus/Samsung themselves or a different carrier.
    • I cannot unlock with just an IMEI number so don't bother asking.

    ERROR CODE = 255? See below..
    • Send me a PM with the phone number and I will review your unlock status.
    Plenty of vouches here from my OP7 / OP8 unlocking..

    Feel free to donate below!

    PayPal:

    CashApp: Given in PM by request.
    Venmo: Given in PM by request.​

    so its been four days since i sent a request with all pertinent information, would just like a yes/no

    So I'd just like to make sure I did this correctly, I messaged him with my last name (name of account) and phone number, was I supposed to include my imei? I'm seeing people have turn around times of a day or two, so I'm stumped. Thank you.

    Sent mine Saturday. Hoping for unlock soon :D

    @mobbdeep, I reached out to you on 8/17. I am pretty sure you are just busy with your daily stuffs which causing delay to the inbox or my DM is lost in the hundreds of requests you get. But whenever you get a chance, please check the DM and let me know if you need anything else.

    @mobbdeep, I sent you a PM on Sunday. Whenever, you can get a chance, please take a look. It was two N 200 phones. Thank you very much

    @mobbdeep , i sent you a PM message yesterday morning, Please look at when you get a chance. Need to make an international trip so this is a little bit important to get it done soon. I know you are very busy these days, But pls look at it when you get a chance. Will donate as soon as they are unlocked.

    I'm still doing this service. However, over the last week, I've gotten hit with roughly 200 requests and still more coming in daily, which is why it's taking longer. I'm also trying to balance my work life with my personal life in the mix of handling these requests. You will get a response once completed. Some people might get a response quicker than you only because I don't go in a certain order of unlocks due to the way this forum messaging system is.

    I hope you guys understand and thank you for your patience. Please keep in mind this is a free service I'm offering. I'm doing my best to get everyone taken care of plus making sure I take care of myself too.
