Unlock code for LG X8 8" pad
I purchased a LG x8 pad from a vendor on Amazon. In the description it clearly says it is "UNLOCKED". It's not. I am a T-Mobile customer and was hoping to add this pad to my T-Mobile account. But, with a new SIM card it's asking for an unlock code. I've researched on the ATT website and it seems to say that I must have an active ATT account in order to supply me with an unlock code. Is this true? So, is this pad useless to me? Or is there something I can do?
