Unlock Lumia 920 from AT&T
16 May 2013
A lot of people have been waiting a long time to unlock their Lumia 920 from AT&T and I'm glad to say that the rumours of the unlock codes being made available in mid-May were true! We can now provide codes for those locked to AT&T for £16.99 or if you are paying in USD $24.99.
To get your unlock code simply click on our Lumia 920 page and select AT&T from the drop down lists.
This is also true for those with a Nokia Lumia 820 locked to AT&T.
The service is quick, with an average delivery time of between 1 and 24 hours for both mobile phones.
However, please do bear in mind that not all unlock codes will be available for every IMEI yet. There is always some confusion around how this works, but unlock codes are uploaded to the databases we use to supply you from and the codes are only made available for your specific IMEI once added by the networks. Therefore there will be IMEI’s out there whose unlock codes aren't yet available. Fear not however, because if your unique code isn't there we will automatically refund your order(s). That isn't a problem for us at all.
The instructions for unlocking the Lumia 920 and 820 are both the same. Please find them specifically written to account for those locked to AT&T below:
- Turn on the Nokia Lumia 920 or 820 with any SIM card that isn't provided by AT&T
- The phone will tell you the SIM will only work on specific networks, and ask you to "Enter PIN"
- Enter the network unlock code we sent you and press Enter
It is an extremely simple method! However, there are instances when a phone may already be unlocked when this doesn't happen. So we would advise you to go through this process prior to ordering an unlock code to be sure. If you have any questions our Customer Service team are happy to help, so please use them.
