    well wish me luck, as i have tried the one recommended above mrunlock.com, to be honest i think they are going to say that they cannot do it and to try again in a few weeks. I just cannot believe the fiasco caused by the lumia 920 launch in the UK. Paid sim free price from phones4u and id expect it unlocked to all networks. I bought the phone before they started to mention it on the website and on twitter that it was locked. My own fault should of returned it when i had the chance but could not go through with it. Well heres to waiting...... LOL rant over for now ha.
    Any other ideas people????????????
    mr unlock should send you code i emailed them to ask if they can do it or not and they reply they can unlock lumia 920. unfortauntally i already pay to cellunlocker.net for mine lumia so waiting till nxt friday :(

    Keep us updated about the unlocking progress. I have a bunch of friends who need to get their Lumia 920s unlocked.

    mrunlock also says they can unlock at&t 920s. I'm going to email them and see if they tested their codes. If tries to unlock an at&t model from them keep us updated, please!

    anyone that bought an at&t Lumia 920 with the hopes of getting it unlocked is going to be sadden... the at&t Lumia 920 will remain locked to at&t for the entire time it is exclusive to that network.



    just google unlocking the lumia 900 and you can read the huge amount of failed attempts without success

    Yeah, I heard about the 900, which is why I'm not getting my hopes up. But it doesn't hurt to ask. I didn't buy a 920 yet, so if all else fails I'll just buy an international 920. Hopefully the price drops for Christmas...

    I had a 45/2012, 46/2012, and 47/2012 with Rogers in Edmonton.

    None of the 3 were able to be unlocked by cellunlocker.net. mrunlock.com and unlock.canadagsm.ca failed with the 45/2012.

    The 45/2012 was purchased from a Microsoft Store and the 46/2012 and 47/2012 were purchased from Tbooth.

    Has anyone any experience of unlockfrog? They are now claiming they can unlock the 920 for 54

    If I'm not mistaken, unlocking the phone to use it to other mobile carrier will void the warranty of the device.

    Unlocking devices with the unlock code does not void the warranty.

    I visited a couple of those high-street unlocking guys, and they said they could do it for 25 GBP and 40GBP respectively.. Anyone had luck with them? I don't know if I trust them or not..

    Yes we can unlock your handset.

    Your order reference number is: *********

    Unlock Code Unavailable

    We have refunded your order in full. Please allow 3-4 working days to see cleared funds in your account.

    Why?

    Unfortunately the unlock code for your IMEI number:*********************** is not available.

    This could be because the phone manufacturer has not yet added it to their database, it is an unsupported model, or you entered the IMEI incorrectly upon ordering.

    Kind regards,

    Ah man that is unfortunate... sucks that they advertise that they can do it but then they actually can't ! Makes me hesitant to pay 54 to Unlock Frog upfront and having to wait days until they finally get back to me and say they can't unlock it....

    i am getting frustrated to be honest. The last resort would be unlockfrog with their method. But im pretty sure now that they all use the same database so i think im going to have to wait a little longer.. It maybe because of the phone i bought was from phones4u, and not ee/orange/t-mobile direct. Has anybody else tried?

    I did not try unlockfrog myself but when I send them a mail asking them about how they are doing it they told me it is actually a manual process which is why it takes 1-14 days, rather than just pulling a code out of a live database.

    But yea paying 54 for that is too much of a gamble to be honest...

    Just placed order with frog....
    I've L920 on PAYG Orange using T-Mobile - They told to [WARN]select UK-EE[/WARN] as operator !!!
    54 is not cheap (399+54(+10sim) still less then 520), and paid by PayPal (additional insurance).....

    The main "turn off" for me is the expected delivery time of "up to" 14 days... for a premium of 54 I find that a bit unacceptable...

    Please keep us posted on how quickly you get the code.

    I gave unlockfrog a chance (and paid them the 80ish canadian to try), they emailed the next day to confirm my IMEI then refunded me the next day saying they couldn't unlock it, said to try again in a few weeks. Can anyone confirm how long it took for the 900 to go from release date to when unlock codes became available? Do I really have to wait the full 6 months?

    the Lumia 920 is only locked to carrier and without unlock codes (for now) in the US. AT&T paid for this right for 6 months. Only AT&T can authorize the release of unlock codes. Since this is a short exclusivity deal just wait it out. OR sell it off and buy an international 920 and get the unlock codes. Whatever you feel works better for you.
