    those guys from unlockexpress disappeared and stopped replying my emails. I opened a claim against them on PayPal to get my money back...

    I lost hope in unlocking my phone. I'll just sell it on eBay next week and buy an unlocked international version.

    These guys refunded the money after 2 days as they could not find Unlock code for the 1020.

    Call them and tell them you've to go out of the country, like Japan or something. They'll happily give you the unlock code, depends on rep to rep, if you find a good rep you'll get it straight away!
    The problem is, they can't find the code in the system, they have to submit an unlock request, and it require either your account on their network for 6 months or you have a proof of purchase. They're pretty firm about it. My 1020 is in the closet right now. Any one with unlocking experience please help.

    My sister is going to France, and really needs her phone unlocked. If they do give me an unlock code, how does it work? Is it if I insert a different sim, it asks for the unlock code? She's going there for 6 months, so the international plan is too expensive.

    Look who needs help, God himself, LOL, no pun.
    Call AT&T, tell them about the situation, make sure you or she is an ATT customer, they'll do some sneaky things and give you the code, insert a non ATT sim, punch the code and send the phone over to me so I can confirm it is unlocked internationally.

    Chat with those reps here, have your things handy - https://tech360.att.com/att/chat/chat_site.asp

    i live in Israel, so i got the phone on ebay from a dude who got it as a gift for developers from Nokia. that's why it didnt pass through at&t and didnt get registered on their systems. so all at&t reps told me that the systems recognizes the device as Nokia device but no model or unlock code.

    Oh well, I was under the assumption you were from USA. Someone has to put an AT&T sim, activate the phone (make a random call) to get that IMEI registered in AT&T database, if that was not done, even God cannot find the code, no jokes on that one, I've been there.
    A ray of hope could be those Gevey unlock cards, you have them for Iphones, not sure about 1020.

    You don't have any other sim?
    It need not be a T sim, can be anything except ATT. Even a foreign sim will do :)

    I only have att sims. I'll just go to the tmobile store and say I might switch, and have them put a tmobile microsim in the 1020.

    Just tell them "I am unstoppable", they might get out of the way. LOL.
    Before you make the trip, get the unlock code, write it on a piece of paper, carry it at the T store, pop the T sim, it should ask for unlock code, enter that code and see if it accepts.

    Once I type the unlock code when I put the T-Mobile sim, does that make it only workable from T-Mobile and att, or ANY carrier with the bands and sim?

    It'll be unlocked for all GSM sim cards throughout the planet :)
    Since I helped you, I may need a favor from you, if you're ok, PM me.
    It has nothing to do about money or your sister's phone.

    Should work in theory, but no guarantees.
