    a guy at Rogers offered to give it to me for 20$ LMAO!!!

    problem with this is thats Unlock codes are Unique to each Phone deppending on your IEME ( serial number )

    theres website that can give it to you. if not just pay 20-30 on e-bay or kijiji to for some rando smuck to unlock it for you.

    for jailbreaking , thats easy programe u can Dl online. takes 10 secs

    Can't you just ask your carrier for the unlock code? I just tell AT&T I want to use my phone with a foreign SIM and they give it to all the time.

    Word is that AT&T will not give them out for the Focus for 11 months due to some exclusivity deal.
    This is the link I have read the most about:
    Unlock Samsung Focus i917, Omnia7 & Galaxy Tab by CODE - eBay (item 140491030695 end time Jan-14-11 21:20:24 PST)
    Feed back is good and the chat on the AT&T forum seemed positive, last time I checked.
    The price has been going up, demand I guess.
    I dont need to be unlocked until I head back to Europe in April so I am hoping the price comes down by then.

    That has nothing to do with unlocking or jailbreaking....

    What my friend did to fix the issue was:
    1. Turn off the phone
    2. Hold down Volume down, camera button, and power buttons
    3. when the phone starts booting up, let go of power button and keep holding the other two

    it will ask you to format, confirm by pressing windows button.

    and it should be back up to 8GB

    I got my Focus at ATT in August and got an unlock code from them a couple of weeks ago. I just said I was going to need it for a trip in December and got it right away, although I need to insert a non-ATT card to enter the code and I haven't taken the time to locate one yet.
    Every choice involves compromising...
