Im from Australia, I purchased prepaid phone on Holiday to USA, can I ever unlock it?
I have come to Hawaii on holiday for 2 months. I tried buying a cheap pre-paid phone from AT&T store but due to phone shortages the cheapest I could get was a iPhone SE 2020, which was a bit more expensive than I had hoped to pay.
Obviously this is locked to AT&T and I need 6 months of 'active service' to be able to unlock it.
I will return to Australia after my holiday and was wondering
- is there any way I can maintain active AT&T service for 6 months after I return to Australia so I can unlock it?
- what would be the cheapest way of keeping my service active
- and am I likely to run into difficulties doing this?
- or is it not worth the hassle and I should just ditch the phone after my holiday.
