    Great news guys!!!

    Unlockitnow.com have unlock for the 1020.

    I have successfully unlocked my AT&T model here
    In the UK.

    It was $25 I believe. Awesome.

    I just called support (I bought the phone full retail w/out an AT&T account at a physical Microsoft store) and they just gave me the unlock code. The phone pulled up a 4G (refarmed) signal in my house on T-Mobile. Thanks for getting the word out on calling support. Now I can use it overseas next week. I am so happy, that's one less device to bring (my camera...).
    How were you able to tell it was a refarmed frequency? Stupid question maybe, but just wondering...does TMo only provide "4G" on 1900MHz or do they provide on other too?

    Their HSPA 4G operates on 1700 and 1900. LTE is band 4 (1700/2100).

    I wanted to know if you have got the lumia 1020 off contract without opening an ATT account. Can you buy the phone off contract at Microsoft store without ATT account?

    Yes you can. But the problem is the unlock code, rather than whether you can purchase at MS store or not

    Yes that is a problem, but I'm kinda entertaining the idea based on other folks reported in this forum that they able to unlock it by calling ATT. In other words, I'm finding any excuse to buy this phone and worry about unlocking later :)

    But the problem is, whehter you can get the unlock code from ATT reps. depends on whether you're lucky enough or not. I tried twice today and it doesn't work. I will wait for the unlock technique for 1020. I think that may not last for long

    I'm looking at multiple options. Of course it all depends on Luck.
    - Get the phone (as you mentioned before can get from MSFT store without ATT account). Try to get unlock code from ATT
    - Try to see how Unlockitnow.com website works.
    - If all that failed then either wait for sometime to get the unlock code from ATT or return the phone.

    yeah that's all we can do so far. Just now I've called a certain place helping unlocking cell phones. It seems even for lumia 925, there's no way they could unlock the phone. I'm wondering how long for lumia 1020

    So got mine at AT&T last night..

    Called AT&T - rep was very friendly; after just a small bit of pushback, he relented and gave me the unlock. Told me it was because I paid for the phone outright full cost and had activated a GO Phone Account and paid..

    Now.. have my T-Mobile chip installed.

    Working:
    LTE
    4G
    Calls
    Internet
    Email
    SMS
    MMS
    GPS

    Not working:
    Wi-Fi Calling - doesn't even appear as a feature on the phone.

    Lost LTE today but customer service @ T-Mobile told me it was due to system issues today; so phone's slopping along on Edge right now..

    (EDIT) If anyone's having a struggle with MMS, these setting worked for me - Settings.. Cellular.. Add Internet APN & Add MMS APN:

    APN: epc.tmobile.com or fast.tmobile.com (for LTE devices)
    Proxy: <Not set>
    Port: <Not set>
    Username: <Not set>
    Password: <Not set>
    Server: <Not set>
    MMSC: http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc

    You put the APN in the APN field of BOTH Internet and MMS Add APN functions.

    On the Internet APN settings you don't need to add anything else.

    ON the MMS APN settings, Go to MMSC URL and use the the MMSC address at the bottom of my list above.

    You can try network setup app from market place (Link below). It worked with Nokia lumia 920 when I got it unlocked and used on T-mobile.

    Just to prove it works - it says 4G on my 909 (1020) and you can see my location on Google Maps and 3UK as my iPad network.

    I just wish that AT&T didn't consider HSPA+ to be 4G!!!!

    Thank you to unlockitnow.com...

    I read on another forum that if you have the T-Mo sim (TM9190) installed and perform a hard reset, the phone will come back up with wifi calling. Of course, you need to have your account set up with that feature enabled and a certain firmware (at least for lumia 810). Could you give that a try and report back? Thanks.

    That app doesn't work on windows phone 8, it works only on windows phone 7 and 7.5. When i click on the link, it takes me to the Store and there is no "Install" button

    I do have that feature on my account and no, this did not work.

    Still, was a good idea anyway I think to do this.

    I went to the Microsoft Store today and got the Lumia 1020, and it did come with a free camera grip.

    I have been unsuccessful in getting AT&T customer service to give me an unlock code. So, I put in an order with safeunlockcode. They estimate that it will take 12-24 hours to provide me with the code. So, I wait...

    Just curious how long did it take for them to get back to you with a code?

    I was successful in getting my 1020 unlocked via AT&T. Just told them I bought it off of contract, and that I leave for Spain on Sunday.
    Rather than calling, I did the online chat. Worked like a charm.

    I did it 12 hours earlier when I didn't know if they were even real - but I took a chance. I also totally forgot about the fact I even placed an unlock order with them.

    I don't know if that means it will take a day or if they were pre-ordering unlocks... what I do know is it worked. I am now unlocked.

    And I would recommend you all use this service INSTEAD of calling AT&T as I spent an hour and got no where and I get really angry when you guys just called up and had them unlock it.

    please keep us posted on the progress of unlocking. I am seeking to do the same. But the AT&T reps can't seem to give me synonymous information.
