    I am on ATT and have a new out of contract Lumia 925 but T-Mobile will only unlock it if I am a customer for 40 days.

    has anyone found a place that can unlock it? I tried a service online that after 4 weeks still no code and got my money back.

    Have you been able to get your phone unlocked? And if so, can you confirm that it does work on AT&T (i.e. LTE, MMS)?

    You do realize it's been criminalized to have your phone unlocked by anyone other than the carrier to which the phone is locked with, right?

    It sounds like he has another phone since he's been trying to unlock this for at least 4 weeks. That service charges over $100 to unlock. He might just want to get a $30 month to month plan from T-Mobile for 40 days and get a free unlock code.

    Hi
    I am newbie on this forum. I bought Lumia 925 with T-Mobile as carrier. Everything is fine when I was in US but when I travel to other country, I cannot use the cell phone with local SIM there. I wonder if I fashing my cell phone with newest firmware and also reinstall the windows on that cell phone, will it unlocked and become an international version?

    No it will not. Are you in and out of the US regularly? I would think that since you need international capability from time to time, they should provide you a code, just don't cancel your US plan.
