Default Can I get an MEP code from AT&T to unlock an 8900?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm planning to purchase a Curve 8900 and I found that I can get a locked phone for about $50 cheaper than if I purchase an unlocked phone. I've watched a couple videos on the unlocking process and it seems super simple. I just don't want to pay someone for a code if I can get it for free.

I believe AT&T will provide unlocking codes however there are conditions that have to be met first. Such as, you must be a customer for 90-120 days. More discussion on the topic on the AT&T forum at howardforums.com.

If your account is in good standing, your carrier may unlock your device. Polices on this vary form carrier to carrier.

Horizon Wireless has very reasonable rates, and treats their customers very well.
