I purchased this device in May as most people did during the Microsoft and Amazon Blowout deals. I have been attempting to use this device with another 4g LTE/3g capable SIM as well in Europe (Norway). I currently have a prepaid AT&T account for use here in the US,which works great, but i refuse to pay the horrendous international roaming data charges through AT&T while I am Abroad.
I recently contacted MIcorsoft, who claims they have no function to lock any hardware devices ever. I contacted Samsung who told me that they leave the factory unlocked and programmed per AT&T specs. They said that with any of their devices, the carrier is the only one who would lock the device, not Samsung.
I submitted a request through the AT&T website for device unlocking which came back immediatly as denied.
I then contacted customer care services who then transefered me and I got a rep who was very polite and tried to help and would have been willing to unlock my device through superviser approval, however there was NO unlock code availbe. She stated that the device did come up properly in system with the correct IMEI # and the system said it WAS unlockable, but when she clicked for the code, the system said it was unavailable.
My question is, how can AT&T lock a SIM to a device and then not know what the unlock code is? Is there any way to unock this device, or did i spend $600 for nothing. There has to be some department who can generate the unlock code for me.

Any updates on this?
I saw some Amazon customers have bought ATIV 500T with unlocked modems (and AT&T logo on the back)! Could not contact them for more detailes, so dont know if tablets arrived unlocked or they got unlock codes from AT&T.

Hope someone have the answer for this trouble
