    First off, my friend is not a dirt bag. He's still partying for it on his plan. Why do people assume the worse off people?

    Second, I resubmitted after the policy changes and I received the unlock code minutes later.

    Thanks all!

    Glad you got your code... One of my 520's had to be submitted twice. It happens more often than we would assume I guess.

    I received a response email for my 635 which I use on Straight Talk (ATT network) saying it is active on an ATT customer's account. I don't have an ATT.com account to fill in if I select ATT customer, and I never activated the GoPhone SIM.. Which route should I try next? :)

    I got the same message when I requested an unlock code for my 920 while using it on Cricket. A week or so later I was using my cricket sim in my 635 and no sim in the 920 I requested a code again and it worked.

    Good to hear. I'll keep the SIM in one of my other phones for a while. I did have it in the 635 last week sometime.

    I'm expecting a 635 this week that is locked to ATT... I'll resist the urge to insert my ST SIM until I get the unlock code then.

    I'm starting to think they are spitting out random answers. Tried again today, again as a non-customer, and just got a response saying I hadn't fulfilled my service contract. :/

    Oh it gets better. Tonight starting shortly after 7pm, I received not 1, not 2, not 3, but 5 identical emails for that same request, saying they were still working on it and it was taking more research to determine my eligibility. :D

    LOL they must be running out of phones to unlock...

    I recently took possession of a used Lumia 635 locked to ATT.

    Today I requested the code and clicked the confirmation link in the email they immediately sent. Only 3 Hours and 40 Minutes later I had my unlock code!!!

    I've unlocked 4 phones from them this year fairly pain free.

    Thanx a lot! That was pretty helpful. A friend has an AT&T iPhone 4s, and he couldn't make that work. He almost bought an Official imei unlock, but I will forward your instructions, and hopefully they will unlock it!
    do you know if there is way to check its blacklist status? Is it ok to ask the AT&T or should I go for an online IMEI Check service?

    An old iPhone 4S is the only one I've managed to unlock using their website. They're seriously getting on my nerves with my Lumia.

    I use Swappa to check IMEI status. https://swappa.com/esn?ref=mobilenat...pUvbUpU3115818

    This is a reply to any who said that they have unlocked an L830 in this message string. WorldSpy99

    Please allow me to ask a few questions to clarify.

    Did you buy the L830 from AT&T?
    Are you still an AT&T customer?

    I am an AT&T customer and I purchased the L830 (full cash payment and NO contract obligation) 4 months ago from them. I can not obtain the 8.1 Update 2 Denim as AT&T is refusing to pass it thru. Microsoft says if I have an unlocked L830 I can get the updates.

    I want to know if I can use this procedure to obtain an unlock code for my device.

    Can someone with AT&T experience advise me?

    Further (I feel foolish asking this) what is done with the unlock code XXXX when obtained in order to clear AT&T from the phone?

    Thanks for the assistance and advice.

    So here 's what happened to me. I bought a lumia from forum member worldspy99. The phone was already unlocked as i think he did that before selling the device. So i got the phone and it works beautifully ๐Ÿ˜. On Tuesday i decided to see if AT&T would send me the unlock code if i asked them through the website. So i followed the tips on page one and i entered the IMEI, my email address and my name. Clicked submit and a few seconds got an email to confirm my request; did that and was told to wait 2 business. So today early in the morning i got an email from AT&T and said congratulations your unlock has been processed and approved (something like that) and in the email was the 20 digit unlock code and instructions to unlock.

    On your question regarding if it will allow for you to rreceive the full denim update; am sorry to inform you that it won't work. Even tough it becomes sim unlocked, it is still an AT&T branded device. What Microsoft meant by it needs to be unlocked is that there is an international model of the 830 that has already been updated to full denim. Usually they are known as Country Variants and there is a North American CV that supports NA LTE bands. Hope my explanation helps ๐Ÿ˜

    Thank you for your reply. You are most kind.
    I understand that I will be no closer to the objective of full Denim and then eventually WindowsPhone 10 access with this excellent phone.

    AT&T ... bait and switch ... GUILTY as charged.

    Thanks again for your helpful reply.

    I returned the 2520 that I could not get unlocked to the Swappa Dirtbag and got my refund via PayPal.

    I turned the refund into another Nokia Lumia 2520 on eBay.

    Submitted the unlock request, hit the confirmation link in the email and got the unlock code back in less than a minute.

    I'm 5 for 6 on the year so far. 520 x2, 635, 830, 2520 @ 1 of 2.

    Since the AT&T Go-Phone version of the 640 is $20 less than Cricket (my current carrier), can I just buy the Go-Phone and request the unlock code? Yes, I guess I'm cheap enough to do that for $20...
    Thanks, JP

    Don't stick the GoPhone SIM (included) into it. If it is unactivated it should unlock easy peasy.
