Re: unlock codes

Hello, tknight74t!


All phones purchased from AT&T typically come locked to this network. Where did you purchase your device? If you click on the link below, you'll see AT&T's unlock policy and requirements.


Provided you meet all the requirements, you should be able to submit a request to unlock your device from that same page.

Re: unlock codes

If the device was purchased from a 3rd party vendor and advertised as SIM unlocked, you should contact the vendor to remedy the situation.  AT&T only supplies SIM unlock codes for current AT&T account holders.
