Sorry, but AT&T would be the only one who could unlock your phone for you.

Phones are locked to a specific arrier. That carrier, AT&T in your case, is the only one that can legally unlock the phone.

....their tech people are a joke. anyhow i teied to cancel my phone insurance and was blocked. itried ti view my phone features to see if icould downsize my services that they very well are stilling me for.i tried to see my contract and other ip documents to see the extent of their ownership and mine and the length of suspensions, etc...blocked...i tried to call them from my cell (supposedly u can still call them at 611 or make a 911 call) to no avail.
pettiness becomes them apparently. when i stopped at starbucks to use their wifi, they halted the starbucks wifi and instead up pops "att wifi". i did this repeatedly just to see......for a week or two my ex-husband was traveling and i was sending him texts to his iphone. then a week later i kept getting red exclamation mark next to the text indicating it had not been sent. i thought there were merely wi-fi snafoos.....wrong!! it must've been at&t although it took me a while to figure that out. for a while they blocked us texting all the time then i sent a text to him telling him i had contacted an attorney and viola! just like that the messages began to go thru.....do u believe that? a couple of months back, all the sounds went away from my phone such as alerts, phone ringtones, music, et al. i was trying to resolve a $30 billing dispute then but said screw it and paid the bill and within seconds, all volumes were back. (if they are developing technology for this purpose, they have too much money!!
now i am beginning to plant untruths in their mind but honestly today i said enough! ...i dont want to be drawn into their twisted abyss. i was all set to do straight talk until i saw the small print saying "active" account...then i got started trying to find out other possibilities. meanwhile, i still use my phone for other features i love. i am still required to keep paying data costs and who knows what else. once my phone was stolen and it took me a while to muster up $600+ dollars for a new one (this was b4 att started carrying phone insurance. i reported it STOLEN but the bills kept coming....that certainly didnt help me save for another phone....nor did it endear me to apple as "find my phone" is/was a joke and i do think they could develop some serious anti-theft measures that work. get this....after it was stolen, i was having a conversation with att and they said something like, well u know they are still using the phone, and i was like what the f----!!!!???? and they said, well u never said u wanted to stop service on it.....when i returned from my red rage, i marveled at their gall....i should have said..."oh no, lets wait until after the holidays!" ggggrrrrr!!, i am at a loss as to what could i have possibly done to avoid this but i couldnt afford their constantly dumping data charges on me that i was not incurring.....and add to that the fact that i wasnt able to actually use my data sinice i was too paranoid and broke to do so!! so, woe is me...i dont have any ideas but just wondered how long until it is mine again. we r at a stalemate. it *****. never again....but meanwhile,,,,no phone of any sort....it is nice in a way and odd....i hope that limbo isnt forever. i am getting google phone but that has its definite limitations and of late, i dont trust them much either. any bone u can toss this old dog would be appreciated!!!! thanks!!!!
