30 May Provider Unlocking my AT&T Nokia Lumia 520 Windows 8 cellular phone with Sim Pin for first time
I have only unlocked a windows cellular phone after. That was my windows seven.5 cellular phone an HTC Trophy. (http://youtu.be/w-9TdFOtaAU)
In this video clip, I will unlock my ATT pre-paid cellular phone a Lumia 520 which I acquired from amazon for the small small cost of $80 + tax (delivered).
Move 1) is finding an unlock code for the cellular phone.
* First come across out your IMEI code. Go to configurations, then About, and simply click Much more.
* You can ask for an Unlock code from ATT in this article (simply click “Non Purchaser or Compensated Non-Dedication Price”:
Move 2) Take away battery cover and insert a non ATT sim card. In my video clip I inserted a t-cell pre-paid card. This card was unactivated. Also, it was initially a standard sim card which I reduce myself with scissors down to micro sim dimensions.
Move 3) power on the cellular phone.. it will quickly ask for the sim unlock code.
Move four) Enter the sim unlock code. BE Quite Thorough. You only get 10 attempts. Soon after that.. your cellular phone could get bricked eternally (unless you call the producer)
Move 5) it will say that it was thriving when you press enter. Hold out a little bit.. at some point on the Cellphone Get in touch with tile, you will see the provider of the sim card you entered. In my scenario it was “T-cell” (even nevertheless the card was unactivated).
UPDATE 10/6: I Will not know what occurred, but I imagine AT&T made the decision to change their coverage on unlocks for this cellular phone for some explanation. Extended tale small.. it appears to be like unlock codes for this cellular phone are like $twenty now. Ridiculous!
