UNLOCKING MY PHONE THAT WAS NOT SUBSIDED BY AT&T
This is the second post about this issue. The first one was successfully ignored by the company.
I already posted publicly and private messaged @ATTCares for support with my situation that seems to be an often issue with many other customers. I bought my device at Best Buy and, as I am not an US citizen and do not live in the country, I asked the retailer for an unlocked device for my free use in US, and anywhere around the globe using the local carriers. Instead so as soon as I insert the AT&T prepaid sim card in my phone, it locked up with the carrier. Remember that I did not get any financial subside from AT&T, which means I paid full price for it. I am no longer in US and I cannot have an $900 brick because of it. I already called Apple and they were clear about who is responsible for the procedure; AT&T. Please consider that the 6 month prepaid activation does not apply for international users as they would never activate their phones with you if they knew beforehand this huge inconvenient would happen.
In advance I thank your attention.
