Question Unable to Unlock Pearl

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys,

Recently I bought an unlocked pearl from eBay. Unfortunately I got AT&T locked phone. With IMEI I tried to get the phone unlocked from many sources like GSM PhoneSource - When Only The Best Will Do, ~ Easy Way to Unlock Your Phone, and even tried calling AT&T customer service but no luck and no one were able provided the unlock code. The reason they cited is they could not find my IMEI number in their database. So, is there any other source that I can find my unlock code from.

they all use the same database server so if no other options were given i would say no for a code there could be a reason to ie (phone reported lost or stolen )

bugle, you are stuck. You should make sure the seller on gets appropriate feedback, and/or returns your money.

I work at a place where they fix phones for all types for many companys and if the phone is unrepairable we swap them with the same phone or if the phone needs a case repair we get them a new case and print out a new serial number tag with the same imem number. Maybe the phone was in repair and the person printing out the number scaned the old number wrong or typed it in wrong. Maybe that's why your number isn't in the system
