    Yes, you should be able to unlock three devices per one account. 1020 should be unlockable since I saw developers working on the imaging SDK nokia released.

    thanks for the info, crash. I tried to install the sdk but it requires windows 8. I am still running windows 7.

    Has anyone actually tried this method to unlock lumia 1020?

    I may tonight. Note, the developer unlock simply lets you load apps onto the phone from your computer (instead of only installing apps via the Microsoft Store). Developer unlock is not the same as carrier unlock, which lets you use a SIM from another mobile operator. There are also additional forms of unlock to let you get at deeper levels of the OS, but I'm reasonably sure that none of those has worked since Mango.
