Unlock a LG Phoenix3-M150 (prepaid account)

Hello, 

I bought a ATT prepaid phone (LG Phoenix3-M150) when I was travelling in USA.

The young woman who send me the phone tell me that I can use it after, when I come back in French Polynesia, but now I'm home and it don't works.

 

how can I get the unlock code for my phone, please help !

If you didn’t use it on ATT prepaid for 6 months, they won’t unlock it.

Never buy phones from US carriers.  They are all locked for up to 12 months of paid service.  

Best Buy sells some unlocked androids.

@Charlotte29

Probably not.  The prepaid lock is absolute.  These phones sell for a fraction of their retail cost.   This phone sold for maybe $40, $50 ?   Retail $150 +/-
