Any unlocking companies who can ACTUALLY unlock this phone?
Normally I unlock these by trying my current AT&T SIM (it used to work), but since the Device Unlock app and relies on the device it historically has not - why not admit you just hate having to unlock phones already, AT&T? The issue now is I ported my number to T-Mobile, so that option is done. This mess is making these phones waste so far.
At one point, I got a Moto G7 Play (purchased used) which is SIM locked to AT&T I got as a backup phone, before switching. This phone has always been SIM locked, but it was cheap and I had AT&T at the time. However, it keeps getting denied for ineligibility and AT&T denies and says use the app. I tried to have it done with The Unlocking Company, but they couldn’t figure it out and refunded me… Not great, since they also had trouble with an AT&T locked LG I tried with them. I think these Device Unlock phones are difficult out of spite.
Is there any unlocking companies who are reasonably priced who can figure this out, without paying for AT&T service for 6 months and looking like a drug dealer for months just to pay up the nose for a “SIM unlock”? I’d sooner dump the locked phones on eBay if I can’t do it without giving them money again. See why here:
PS: Yes, I looked into the “shill it to family” method, but they’re looking past AT&T too.
Is this a good question?
