Re: How can i unlock a Gophone

The Go Phone is a line of prepaid cell phones offered through AT&T that you can use without having to sign up for a contract.If you insert a SIM card that the phone does not recognize, you will need to obtain a Subsidy Unlock code for it. ATT will not have the unlock codes for older devices.
However, you can only obtain if you have a customer in the proper meaning of the last 90 days you have. The codes are provided within 5 business days. If you don 't received again within 5 business days, than you must contact the customer care.

Re: How can i unlock a Gophone

AT&T/Cingular will tell you the unlock code for your GoPhone, but only under certain specific conditions. These conditions are enforced somewhat haphazardly. If you get a CSR (Customer Service Rep) on a good day, your call can be quick and easy. If you get a CSR on a bad day, you might as well hang up and call back again.

The usual conditions required to get an unlock code for a GoPhone are:
  • You must have been an AT&T GoPhone customer for at least 90 days
  • Your account must be in good standing

Many times, AT&T/Cingular will refuse to give you an unlock code unless you are travelling internationally to a country where AT&T does not have an international roaming agreement. For more info see this:tech-faq

While searching on internet you can find lots of companies that offer unlock codes at cheap prices. You must contact them to buy the unlocking codes. You can also contact At&T customer care for the same. They may help you out.
