Generally unlocks codes are not available to your service provider and the request is made by your provider to the manufacturer of the phone.

    I am a Cingular employee also. Actually, we aren't "Cingular" anymore, remember? LOL

    What baffles me is T-Mobile wont give me a code for a Motorola C330 because I did not request it within 90 days of cancelling my account with them. What a crock! And, so I called Motorola, and guess what? They referred me back to T-Mobile. Them I emailed ERP within AT&T, and they couldn't help me either

    My department within our company does not give us COU accts, we can only get ERP accts. If you work for AT&T, you know what I mean by those terms.

    I even paid a 3rd party $ 15 for a subsidy unlock code, only to have them give a a bogus one!

    So, I guess my only option is to buy a new phone at a generous 30% off full retail price(lol)

    What dept within Cing/AT&T do you work for by chance? BRM? BEUC?

    Re: Unlocking Motorola Phones using IMEI #

    Interesting info.

    Who at AT&T to contact to get an unlock code? Is this right: "Call AT&T's prepaid international support line at 1-866-265-4425"?

    I got a new phone a few months ago and would like to unlock my old one for travel in Asia and for text messaging.
