You could try selling it to a user who only needs it for use with the branded carrier.
Not everyone needs an unlocked phone.

Just be forthcoming about it being permanently locked and I doubt you'll have any trouble selling it.

Once all of the unlock attempts have been used, there is no way to unlock it. None.

No, it's permanently locked now. You only get 10 tries to unlock it, and when you use them up, it's game over.

Sell to a U.S. buyer. eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices
