    Hey guys its been almost a month since I bought a Nokia Lumia 900 from AT&T and I have not been able to fully use my device because it's locked and can't get unlock codes. If any one has any solution towards my dilemma it would be greatly appreciated.

    It's going to be a while before ATT starts to release unlock codes for these devices.

    I'm starting to realize this but it's driving me up a wall. I actually really love this phone and having a very hard time parting with it, but I'm seeing that I will have no choice.

    AT&T policy (since 2010) has been to not unlock any of their phones for at least 10 months after their "exclusivity" period ends.

    Like the Motorola Atrix was released end of feb 2011. They wouldn't unlock it for me until Dec 2011. 10 months later.

    I thought that sucks. So got unlock code from eBay for $20 in April.

    Maybe Nokia and AT&T are making it harder to find cheaper eBay codes to unlock the lumia 900?

    I got eBay unlock in April 2011 for atrix 4g.

    AT&T would have provided a free unlock for the atrix in December 2011, 10 months after its release.

    Unlock codes used to be provided for free almost immediately in the past. AT&T is just getting stingy on providing unlock codes.

    If you are planning to use the phone outside US you should return it and get a global version; however, if you are living in the US and do not want to get into a contract use one of AT&T's MVNO(mobile virtual network operator) like Red pocket or H2O they provide the "same" service as AT&T(because they use AT&T's towers) and you can use all of the features (besides MMS; however NOTE that with WP TANGO coming you will be able to modify the MMS settings. Therefore you will be able to send MMS in the future [or you can use Whatsapp]) that the phones has. Hope it helps....

    I know that there are some MMS modifications coming with the Tango update, but there has been no word (as far as I can see) about editing MMS APN settings, which is what we would have to be able to do to edit MMS settings on an MVNO.

    May I ask where you read the information stating that the APN settings for MMS will be editable with Tango?

    Hey,


    I had to unlock mine from a different network, so haven't stayed up to date with what AT&T are doing. But you can see if an unlock code is available for you once you've selected the network from this site Unlock Nokia Lumia 900 - Mobileunlocked.co.uk

    Should help you.
