Hey guys the strangest thing happened to me.
I'm not from the united states so I ordered a nokia Lumia 900 from ebay brand new but I has a sim lock. I ordered an unlock code from www.GSMfast.net - Fast & Cheaper Unlock Service on Saturday morning and I am still waiting. decided to call at&t and explain to them that I don't reside in the states they told me that this device will not be permitted to update until next year. I really love this phone and would hate to think that I just wasted all that money.
Can anyone help me with this problem?

not update or not unlocked? There is a difference. Most unlocking services on ebay will send you a code via email so why havent you received the code?Your smartphone is only as smart as YOU let it be!

I could be mistaken, but I believe some users at XDA have successfully gotten SIM unlock codes, while others have gotten refunds, with a sorry, can't do it. You probably should have checked first. AT&T is not currently releasing unlock codes. If you can't return the phone, your only option may be a custom ROM.

I was in a slightly different boat. I couldn't get the unlock code for my Lumia 900 locked to the UK O2 network, but found it using these guys.

I have only read of two people being able to get their Lumia 900 unlocked from ATT. Both were long time ATT customers who paid full price for their phone and moved out of the US. So its possible but very very hard to do. You're better off buying a rogers version and unlocking it or ponying up to buy the international version of the phone.

I tried www.GSMfast.net - Fast & Cheaper Unlock Service to get my att nokia lumia 900 unlocked and they did it in 8 days.Maybe you should try back seems only att account users or if you have a contact in att you can get it done.
Seems they have good connect cause i also got my att iphone 4s unlocked there in 1 day.
Try them maybe back then u had an issue.But i know it works now.

I've spoken to ATT numerous times about this as I'm currently studying in Europe and they've told me everytime it will be available to be unlocked 10/8/12. That's 6 months after the 4/08 release date so it makes sense, but still frustrating as I'm currently carrying two phones around.
