    Yep... So long as Grabber5.0 never handles your phone it is easy peasy.

    Yes. when you get the phone, REMOVE the SIM before you ever turn it on so that it does not activate itself onto ATT... No SIM on first power up and you are good.

    Then get your unlock on.

    If it activates onto the network you then have a waiting period of some time they expect you to have service before you can unlock.

    The phone packaging should be sealed and no one should try turning them on say at customs... I imagine only an Xray would assure them it is alright.

    The ATT site says that a Go Phone has to have been active, on ATT, for 6 months, before it can be unlocked. So, if true, you were lucky.

    Just confirming that this still works.

    I bought a L640 gophone at Best Buy on black Friday, submitted the request as "not a customer" that evening, got a couple emails about how it needed "further attention" and got the unlock code last night (Tuesday). Two business days. In the meantime I powered up and played with the phone but never put in a sim card, until I used an old T-Mobile sim to trigger entering the code.

    I'm going to guess that the recent spike in volume of 640 sales may cause some delay. I'm sure they need confirmation from a retailer that the unit was purchased and is not stolen or reported lost.

    There's a note on the packaging about anti-theft. Apparently it is considered stolen, until the retailer scans all the barcodes on the box.

    And then the retailer submits to the OEM/carrier. Might take processing time carrier side...

    I applied and received unlock code but following instructions on AT&T site I never got the request to enter the code. I had turned the phone off, removed the AT&T sim and installed H2o sim, turned back on but the windows home screen came up as usual.

    I have read that some new phones have a feature called Domestic SIM Unlock-capable (DSU) where the unlock is automatic over-the-air. If that happens, or, has already happened, how do you find on the phone if its locked or unlocked? Is there a code to input to receive the lock/unlock status?

    H2O is an mvno using AT&T towers. As such it will not trigger an unlock request. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...work_operators

    Open Phone dialer > dial ##7820# > you don't even need to press Send > it takes you to the carrier lock status screen and you see a locked padlock overtop a SIM icon > tap the entry field and input your unlock number > after processing the padlock now appears unlocked > enjoy

    So i just received my Lumia 640. Did everything people here on the site suggested but i keep getting the following error message:

    Error: We’re sorry, but we’re having technical difficulties with our network at the moment. Please try again later. If this problem persists, try clearing the cache and cookies from your device. Questions? Call us at 800.331.0500, or dial 611 from your AT&T wireless phone. (errorCode.ULS3001)

    Anybody else experiencing this too at the moment? Should just be patient or am i doing something wrong?

    I got one on the 23rd, and one from Best Buy on the 24th...both are gophones from AT&T. I was able to fill the form for both phones on the 24th. Everything was smooth, but I received the email stating that they need to research further today, the 26th.

    So we are 4 days later and i still get the same Error code ULS3001.
    Is anybody else experiencing this problem when they try to request an unlock code for their Lumia 640?

    It might have to do with the increased requests from all the people buying these phones on this Christmas sale. I bought two, and know some people that went to buy it as a backup phone. My application went through four days ago, but I'm still waiting on the unlock codes.
