Default AT&T gave me the unlock code via email without any trouble

I just called up and asked for the "subsidy unlock code" and said I was going to Europe later this Summer and they had me fax the sales receipt showing I paid full retail and then about 24hrs later I got an email with an unlock code and very detailed instructions on how to enter the code.

While I am an at&t customer, I don't think it would have mattered. My IT guy bought one for our boss who is living in London for a year and uses Vodaphone and at&t gave him the unlock code as well for free.

Has anyone else tried just calling up at&t customer service and explaining that you paid retail and want the subsidy unlock code?

maybe i am naive, but my sense is that they will probably email it to you if you ask a few times.

Default Does Unlock void ATT warranty

I just ordered an 8300 from ATT/Cingular with a contract extension. My secretary called about getting an unlock code (I spend a goodly amount of time in Israel) and while she had no problem getting a code, she was told "Once you unlock the phone, the warranty is voided". Is this correct? Thanks.

Default Dont Buy From Adam

i paid adam for an unlock code for my blackberry curve and he said he couldnt get it and would issue me a refund. HOWEVER, i have NOT gotten my refund AND now i cant get a hold of him, like he's dodging my emails/calls/IMs, everything. i am VERY dissatisfied with his POOr customer service and urge anyone not to buy from him!

I have gotten my unlock codes from Cingular/ATT in the past. Called the Interntational Desk, told them I was going to be doing some international travel and my company required me to use a local company SIM while I was over there. No problem they said and I got the code via email in a couple of hours. I don't think they will do this unless you have been a customer for more than 6 months, but it is worth a try if you are with ATT. They do say it will take up to 5 business days to get the code, but each time, in just a few hours, I have it, Free.
