AT&T starts unlocking the Nokia Lumia 900

If you are an AT&T customer sporting the Nokia Lumia 900, you can receive an unlock code from the carrier and have your handset unlocked for use with a SIM card from any carrier, like T-Mobile for example, which would allow you to use T-Mobile's unlimited data plan...

AT&T has said since launch that the devices would be unlockable on or after October 7th. I went to art.com/deviceunlock last week and got my code on Sunday. Reps are supposed to direct unlocking queries to the website, so don't waste your time calling.
P.S. Only the iPhones have restrictions about the contract being satisfied or ETF paid.

Also, to initiate unlocking on the phone, turn off phone, insert different carrier's SIM, start phone, then enter the 8-digit code

Note: I got my Lumia 900 before it officially went on sale, so others' unlock dates may vary.

Good luck with this. As the article said, most AT&T representatives don't know about these technicalities. That such a thing is even possible. I haven't dealt with all the carriers but AT&T hires some uninformed people.

Thanks for sharing such useful information for AT&T Nokia Lumia users. My bro gifted me the same phone but I wanted to use some other Network Operator for that. Then he suggested me about unlocking technique. I searched for the same on many websites, in fact twice I paid to some sites for my unlock code. But all were just wastage of money. While searching I went on a forum, still have bookmarked,http://howmobile.net/nokia/216
6-free-unlock-code-nokia-lumia-900-a.htmlhere I read the discussion about Unlocking and I was just surprised that I am not the only who had paid for same. And see, now as you have discussed above, that after making a call in fact, we don't get any help from their reps. So it’s the another useless procedure.
Still I am searching for a website where I am sure about the code after spending my money and precious time also. Any help would be appreciated.

I had a good experience with ATT. I called and immediately requested tech support. I told tech support that I wasn't a customer and I purchased my phone for full price and I need the unlock code to unlock my phone. He verified what he needed to and processed my request. It took no more than 5 minutes. My cyan Nokia Lumia 900 is officially unlocked. Thank you about time ATT.

I requested an unlock code for Lumia 900 from at&t 1.5 months ago.
It did not work. When asked again, they just give the same code.
Then when Nokia was contacted directly they provided a different code.
Which does not work either.
If these 2 companies cannot even perform a simple task like this, what can they do really.
