You are 100% correct, but sometime a rep answers the phone and they feel like they want to do something nice. I am telling you when I bought this bold of craigslist I was waiting to get home to order the unlock code from horizonwireless but I called ATT on the way home. I knew they wouldn't unlock it unless you are a customer, in good standing and have had the phone for more than 90 days. I told the rep that I bought this phone, and I am not an ATT customer, I also do a lot of travel and use local SIM cards and I would like to get the phone unlocked. She said wait few minutes and she came back ans said are you ready to write down the code. I was shocked, I said let me pull over, and she proceeded providing the code along with the typical unlocking instructions.
When I had a storm, VZW unlocked even though I was a brand new customer. Believe it or not, I had the hardest time with TMO, my current carrier, getting the Curve unlocked. I had to call them back so many time that they actually flagged my account for an investigation. The funny thing, it has been over a year and their investigation is not done yet and they don't know what they are investigating when I call and ask for an update.
