    ##7820# bet it works.
    Worked perfectly on Lumia 635 without even removing SIM or restarting with code supplied by ATT. Thanks so much!

    You need a specific code that is generated for your IMEI (basically, the serial number of the phone) by your carrier. In some cases, independent 3rd party "cell unlocker" companies can get the code for you as well (for a fee).

    Funny, AT&T wouldn't tell me this, even though they gave me the unlock code. Kinda like deputy Barney Fife being allowed to carry revolver with no bullets. Thanks, troylytle, for the solution I needed. I know the thread's almost two years old now, but felt compelled to join and be able to express thanks. This is what forums are all about.

    I remember that with my Samsung Focus there was a way to do it on WP7, that time ATT sent over the instructions as well, but this time they only sent the code, just wanted to see if anyone had the answer before talking to ATT.

    edit:
    just searching around I found the following:

    "1 - Switch ON your phone without SIM Card,
    2 - Compose #PW+CODE+1#
    To get letter P press * button quickly 3 times
    To get letter W press * button quickly 4 times
    To get letter + press * button quickly 2 times
    3 - The phone show "SIM Restriction Off" and was unlocked"

    anyone tried it that way?

    I think that is old way of unlocking. You use the ## feature now instead. Its like a built in app now. Takes ne back that does to the days when I unlocked my Nokia 3330 and 3650 now that's a long time ago lol

    You need to get onto your mobile carrier and they will get Nokia to email you instructions on how to unlock your phone. I have a Lumia 520 and had to do this, it takes about two days to get the code.

    Make sure your putting in the longer code (made up of numbers and letters) instead of the IMEI number. I made that mistake when I got my code. The little arrow or check mark will come on (beside the box where you insert the unlock code) when enough characters/digits are entered.

    Thanks for the ##7820# suggestion. Worked like a charm on my AT&T L635 today. Next step, de-branding the ROM and updating to GDR2 and Denim.

    I actually bookmarked this topic several months ago, just in case I ever needed it. Now I did. Glad it was here.

    You have to obtain the code from your carrier, or from a third party site. The code is long - 20 characters, all numbers. It is not the same as the IMEI.

    If you make more than 10 attempts to enter a code that is incorrect, the phone will lock permanently to your carrier.

    The ##7820# just brings up the screen to enter a code, but you must obtain the code somewhere else.

    No, you'll have to go to your carrier or a third party unlock service like cellunlocker.net. (former is likely free, latter is likely paid.)

    and do not post you IMEI publicly.

    Soooooo, I send At&t the ##7820 code, then they'll send me a 20 digit code, then I have to rearrange the sequence of the code until I hear a loud buzzer, and at that point I enter the IMEI into outer space and then my phone will unlock. Right?


    Jesus people. No one wants to say it but I will... some of you are just outright stupid. Reading... its fundamental!!

    Thanks for the ##7820# code. Its what I needed because I got the same set of instructions from At&t that only mention using another SIM.
    Gonna sell my old 920.

    Did it work before? Does it say it's looking for a sim card, or does it show that the sim card is present? That sounds like a bad antenna.
