Can someone confirm if they've been able to unlock the AT&T Lumia 920?
Was it through some paid service or through AT&T?
And if they have been able to test it on T-Mobile?
I am trying to make a decision really quick on purchasing the phone this weekend.

I have called twice to the AT&T corporate and asked if they can unlock the Lumia 920 if it's purchased off contract, and they said yes and asked me for the IMEI number.
So unless their policy changes, I am assuming AT&T will unlock the Nokia Lumia 920

Id be skeptical of att unlocking non contract phones.
Usually, they will not unlock a phone if it is an exclusive phone, once the exclusivity ends, your account is in good standing, you can probably unlock.
I think people with the 900 wasnt able to unlock an att phone until recently which was like 6 months after release.
ATT reps are not reliable, one will say yes others will say no.

I can't even pre-order the L920 online without being forced to buy a plan. This is even after choosing the off contract price. I am hoping Friday I can walk it and get the phone only. Might activate on Straight Talk until I can get it working on Tmobile.

Essentially...they are clueless and just wait for the computer to tell them what is up once they have the IMEI. It was nearly impossible to get a Lumia 900 unlocked until October.Current Phone: Nokia Lumia 920
Past Phones: iPhone 4, Motorola Atrix, Samsung Focus, Samsung Focus Flash, Nokia Lumia 900, Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4
Tablet: Microsoft Surface Pro, Nexus 7

Just brought my red beauty home to TO from Buffalo, time to unlock. I called the AT&T cs and talked to a very helpful rep (Vernon) who said that because the phone is so new, they do not have a process for unlocking it yet. He said to send in proof of purchase and a formal request via fax to him, and that I should get an unlock code within 3-7 days. According to him if you buy the phone for a full price, they have to unlock it for you.
What a great cs experience, makes me hate Rogers even more!! ;)

UPDATE: Do not buy the AT&T! It is DEAD locked, trust me I tried everything. I waited for 7 days for AT&T and talked to like 5 reps all said that it should be no problem, but in the end thi is the answer I got:

I am using cellunlock.net, they did my HD7 a week after it came out. I placed my order and they are stating 5-10 days so we will see. Here is the link

Whoa pump the brakes there! I used them for my HD7 and it was fine, I saw there add for the 920 yesterday so I gave it a shot. In ten days I will see what happens but dont start saying I am false advertising. In my post it says "we will see", how about you learn to read before making accusations.
