19 Mar How to unlock your AT&T Alcatel Ideal for FREE (Update 8/6/2017: Free Unlock does NOT WORK)!!



The comments section is open ONLY to approved comments. All comments are held for review. this tutorial is how to unlock an Alcatel Ideal phone for free directly from AT&T any links to posted to the comments section regarding unlocking ANY unlocking site, Video, or eBay listing for an “unlock” will be deleted and your account will be reported as spam. Some viewers and sellers that act as viewers will ask “Why”? I Say Why pay for An unlocking service when you can do it for FREE!!! Directly from AT&T Don’t get scammed by websites or an eBay seller or pay a seller on eBay or some other website that do the same method that I showed you here.

Unlocking sellers/websites will note on their ads as follows:
1. Phone must be out of contract
2. Phone must not have a balance owed your account
3. Phone can not be reported stolen or lost
4. 24-72 hours or longer for unlock code(if then they can not get it then they will refund your money)
5. Why give your IMEI# to strangers when you can do it yourself for FREE and keep your IMEI# to yourself???

Follow my instructions and you will get your phone unlocked in no time and FREE.
1. Get your IMEI by dialing *#06# or look at the label under the battery.
2. Go to
3. Accept the Terms Of Policy
4. Choose non AT&T Customer
5. input your IMEI and complete a CAPTCHA code
6. Enter your name, last name and email address
7. Confirm the email from AT&T and take note of the request number
8. in at least 2 business days you’ll get an email with an unlock code
9. Insert a non AT&T SIM and enter your unlock code.
10. Now you can use your phone with ANY GSM carrier in the world*

* Check your phones compatibility with the bands used in the country you’re visiting to confirm compatibility.

    Hey MVJ, great video. Can tell me as of Nov 2017 does this procedure in your instructions still work? Your input is greatly appreciated.

    i got an at&t prepaid alcatel ideal, and the device unlock page doesn't recognize the IMEI. So this must be only for postpaid phones

    The IMEI number at the back is d same one it gives you when u enter *#06#?

  • FubarMike

    Probably not a phone you'd want to buy just to unlock after a long wait. It would be better to save another 40-50$ and get a moto e4 or something pre unlocked

    I did the same way you did and its not working. I read about it and it say you have to have service for 6 months to be eligible.

    This method doesn't work anymore Bro. You will be denied. I used to get approved all the time till about 2 weeks ago.. Att email to me states my phone has not been used actively on att network for 6 months. Phone wasn't turned on, and sim wasn't activated either. I bought only handset and no activation. NO MORE FREE UNLOCK TILL AFTER U USE GO PHONE FOR 6 months..THIS SUCKS

    Why I can't unlock my alcatel ideal? I have done it before with other devices and now there is a message telling me that I have to activate a paid service for six months. I don't get it, it is a Go Phone as the others!

    When I go to the unlock page – I clock "Not a customer" – but when I put in the IMEI, it says: "The IMEI you entered does not appear to be an AT&T wireless phone or tablet. Please re-enter the correct 15-digit IMEI number for your AT&T wireless phone or tablet" The # starts with 01480 20*** ***

    I did an IMEI check, and it matched the Alcatel Ideal 6040A phone that I purchased – it even has an AT&T logo on the back of the phone, but it will not recognize it no matter what I do. I don't want to pay for the unlock – what can I do? Please help.

    okay, I just bought 4 alcatel and 2 express. I'm sending to the Caribbean to family members. last night I apply for the codes via AT….T, and today around 10am I receive all codes. but I recommend to apply with different emails so your requests don't get deny.

    It took 9 days, but it worked….Thanks

  • Pedro Perez
    Posted at 22:24h, 19 March

    Great video, it worked just fine for me, a very important step is that you remove the pre-installed sim card before turning on the phone for the first time. It took 8 days to get the code, they did not send me an email with the code, I had to keep checking their website everyday but I got my phone unlocked for free! Thank you

  • Jergens Roberdeaux
    Posted at 22:24h, 19 March

    OK, OK.  I will take out the sim card first.

    hey friend, I really love the info. in my country phones are so expensive. a cheap phone like this would cost about 250. I bought 10 and I just gave them away to family members. i wish I see this video before I bought those unlock codes from the Android store. next time I know better.
