    Make a mistake purchasing a locked at&t device :p
    Man, it is the biggest mistake of my life, I feel like throwing rocks at AT&T now...hopefully ideviceguys sent me an email saying he has a new supplier and wanted to use my imei as a tester, I okayed and he demanded 1-7 days to come with the output, it better be an unlock code because I am fed up.

    I even planned to offload the 1020 locally and get a 64GB unlocked variant from Ebay UK.

    I vow never ever to buy a locked device (unless android, which I wont buy for personal use) again.

    If no sim was ever inserted in the phone, even god cannot unlock it because AT&T does not have the IMEI in its database yet.
    I'm pretty sure if its a branded phone of ANY kind, the carrier will have the IMEI in their database. It is branded for a reason. You can check by inputting the IMEI into the AT&T's unlock it and it'll tell you. I just entered my Verizon iPhone 4s and it automatically pulled it up as an iPhone so it seems they even have other carriers IMEI numbers. Not sure if they all share some common db based on the OEM. If you enter in any Lumia 1020 and it'll state device cannot be currently be unlocked.

    if we all knew it'd be so hard to unlock we'd obviously would've bought other versions. To our defense, it was only fairly recent that AT&T clamped down on unlocking some phones like the 1020. People had no issues unlocking a few months prior whether through the carrier or 3rd party.

    That,s because AT+T is plain greedy.This is not just recently either, i had problem with them not wanted to give unlock codes going back about 8 years when i was using them,now i,m on T-Mobile.They used to say and it sounds like they still do-lying that only Nokia has the codes and if i call Nokia they say AT+T has the codes which i presume is the correct answer.If i can remember back then only the higher end ones can,t be unlocked by 3rd party,now it seems like they stopped all the codes.But T-Mobile is not like that,even though it doesn,t apply to me since i have a factory unlocked Lumia 1020 they said they will unlocked a phone bought fron them no problem and free of charge,only stipulation is phone is in use for 45 days-no runarounds,hassles.Perhaps it,s great the US govt stopped the attempted merger by AT+T with T-Mobile-that would be a disaster!

    I was finally able to unlock my ATT branded 1020 but not until the ETF fees were paid. Unfortunately, once I was on TMo, the phone would not/could not send picture texts and the coverage in my area for TMo was horrendous. I could lose signal or go from 4 bars to 1/2 bar while sitting in the same chair in a matter of seconds.

    I may not like ATT's pricing but, unfortunately, you get what you pay for. And with TMo, my bill was low but so was my coverage area. Be sure to test the snot out of your coverage when you switch...full disclosure: I switched to TMo two months ago and just switched back to ATT due to lack of signal - their customer service was always helpful and courteous (they even sent me a cell booster for my home (didn't help)) but in the end, it's all about the bars...

    Thankfully for me, Tmo works fine wherever I am though their data speeds vary greatly. Tmo was great on my Nexus 4. Would've gotten a Nexus 5 but wanted to try windows phone. Next time I may just buy a Verizon LTE phone since they are being released unlocked.

    Found another site, chronicunlock.com. They increased their price substantially though... It is now $99.99 to unlock any AT&T phones. I may be willing but I'm not going to do so unless someone tries it first with success... Hahaha I will not be the guinea pig.

    I will post my device with Idevice guys next week when the owner should come up with something.
    The attunlock site was not accepting AT&T Lumia orders until now, I see their price as $99, never tested them.

    @Ukyo, its $99 for AT&T Iphones only, for Lumia its $75~, however they do not mention whether its for AT&T or Fido or anything specific, I'd be wary.

    The site was mentioned on a blog that wrote about AT&T clamping down on unlocking and seems legit. I'm going to sell my 1020 soon if there there's no way to unlock in the near future.
