    I was just wondering if there was a way to check with a funky dial code if the sim is locked on my 920 phone... I realize the best way is just puting in a new sim from another carrier but I don't have one and I'd like to just test it...

    My Lumia 920 is a 44/2012 batch and I have read reports that all of 43/2012 are unlocked and some 44/2012 as well. CellUnlocker.net could not find a code... maybe that's why :)

    Just trying to find out if I'm lucky for one :)

    try ##782#

    see if it prompts you to enter unlock code.

    thanks.

    i was looking under setting.

    is the op correct? is it possible that some 920 are already unlocked?

    Just dial ##782# and find out.

    I tried the ##782# but usually when you enter a valid "##" (say *#06# for the IMEI #) it just works... i punch the ##782# code and nothing happens, I hit call and it just takes me back to the call history pane.

    Does that mean I have an unlocked phone?

    If so, I am happy...and scared because what if I want to one day flash a plain firmware on my 920? It may lock my phone and then I won't have the code to unlock it right?

    See that's so not fair, he gets a message that basically says " Hey bro congrats your phone is unlocked, you're a bada**" and we get nothing... couldn't they just put a message that says like "Sorry phone is locked, sucks to be you" ANYTHING!! I'm gonna try my luck with unlock.canadagsm.ca

    Don't worry, my is unlocked per 100% (checked with 2 different sim cards) and when I tap ##782# it also quits me to call history :)

    Unlocked phones means you don't have to wait for the carriers to infect the OS, and you don't have to wait for updates...they come straight from Microsoft.

    I have 2 Lumia's 920, both shipped from ATT directly, I tried the ##782# code and it takes me right back to call history. I doubt both of them are unlocked. Unfortunately I don't have a different carrier micro-sim to test.

    1) UNLOCKED means here sim-unlocked=you just can use other carriers' sim cards

    2) neither unlocking nor flashing ROM to Country Variant let you get updates directly from MS/Nokia. OTA come by Phone's Product Code. So even if you flash rom from EE to O2 or german T-mobile or polish Plus GSM or italian Country Version after OTA update your software will be again from EE

    I just tried because my phone (AT&T) was doing the same ##782# and takes me to history. I put my wife's sim from other company and it prompts me for an unlock code. So no good news, phone is locked.
