    Default At&t unlock Help!
    Hey, I'm not an at&t customer but I used my friends at&t account and I got to the point where I give the guy the imei number. So he put in the system but he said he got an error and it doesn't say why. And then he said it can't be unlocked but he said it doesn't say why!

    So I made a second attempt by sending them a request this time using a different friend who also has at&t using this link https://www.att.com/deviceunlock/client/en_US/
    Now I'm waiting. But why do you think the first time they got an error? He even called technical support and they also got the error and don't know the reason! And will the request thing work?
    Please help me understand, Thanks

    It should hopefully work since you did it with your friends account. As far as the error, I have no clue. They probably could or should have told you that, but it's not like its required. There's lots of things that could have caused it though. System errors, etc. etc.

    But I don't work at AT&T, so I have no clue what they might have done

    I hope so too. They gave me a request number. Do you know where I can check with that number?

    I know right! At the beginning they were unlocking everyone with no probs.
    Then it stopped and they made it a lot stricter and basicly now they try to make it very very hard even for AT&T customers with legit unlock requests to go through.
    Its more BS from AT&T.

    UPDATE: After trying from friend's different at&t accounts, it turns out that the iphone i bought is still under contract. So I guess I'll just use one of those on ebay who do iphones that are still under contract. Can you guys suggest me a good ebay seller? I found one's doing it for $20 and less.

    you can try this ebay listing:
    Unlock Code for AT&T USA Apple iPhone 3 3G 3GS 4 4S FACTORY Permanent | eBay

    it was suggested by blkcadi (a MOD), I havent had experience with that seller, but she had good experience with it

    so next time you see here around here, make sure to thank her

    Yup, I have used this several times since Saturday, even on a phone that was under contract and had a $1000 balance on the old owner and it worked flawlessly.

    Cool. One thing though I do not have a sim right now im my iphone. I'm going to wait until its unlocked then I'll ask tmobile to cut my mini sim. Is that fine or will it interfere with the unlocking?

    You can cut it yourself, or T-Mo has micro sims also.
    Here is a site you can check your imei to see if the unlock works before your restore.

    Any micro sim will work. (I understood you).
    You can pay for the unlock, wait for email confirmation, check the site I linked you to before you need a sim.

    You click on the link, go the eBay. make purchase, it will open a new page for you to input your iPhone imei #, recieve confirmation email that the unlock has been successful, and rock and roll.
    Email confirmation has taken me personally anywhere from 1 hour to 23 hours on weekends.
