Lightbulb Need Unlock code for Skyrocket

How do I unlock my Skyrocket? I am going overseas and AT&T will not give me the code because the phone is still too new. Thanks in advance.

I too have used www(dot)unlockclient(dot)com (for i577 ICS version). Instructions are a little bit too terse, but it worked and I used Win7 running under Parallels on an iMac. Also present on eBay.

Over the past few days I've searched for the cheapest and quickest method for unlocking my new (for me) Skyrocket. I certainly didn't want to pay $25-35 and I didn't want to wait hours or days for my phone to be unlocked.

But for each unlocking company or website that I saw positive reviews for, I would see just as many cautions to stay away from them. There just wasn't a consensus recommendation for a best unlocking solution.

After looking over all my options, I went to eBay and searched for the Cheap&Easy Skyrocket Permanent Unlock by USB. It offered an immediate unlock of my i727 Skyrocket and at $17 was one of the least expensive. After paying thru PayPal for the service, I received a confirmation email within minutes with instructions for installing the Samsung USB drivers and unlocking software.

After installing the software, I was only required to make a couple of keypad entries on the phone, then run the unlocking program. In far less time than it has taken to write all this, my Skyrocket was unlocked.

Now, I will say that this method might not be for everyone. I have been flashing custom ROMS on Android phones for a couple of years, so I'm comfortable with installing drivers, entering programming codes on phones, and running programs that modifies the innards of expensive Android phones. If you've ever flashed a custom ROM or recovery on your Android, this method of unlocking really is a no brainer.

Never flashed a custom ROM on your Android? If you've ever installed a new program on your computer or transferred music from your computer to your Android phone, you can unlock your Skyrocket!

I am very happy with my decision.

I search high and low to unlock my skyrocket. I was expensive on some site; however on ebay, search for seller " aprivate" . They have a product call "cheap&easy Permanent unclock skyrocket" for $17. I purchased it and it was an instant email reply with a zip file. I installed the file and hooked my phone to the computer. 1-2-3, my skyrocket was unlocked with my Hong Kong sim card. I exchanged the ATT and HK sims three times to make sure it is consistent. It is a great site to have.

unlockclient.com

Try it !! It works.

Where do these "companies" come up with these codes/instructions?
