I know normally, you have to pay to get an unlock code, but I was wondering, is there any way to get one for free? I heard that you could call AT&T customer service and get one for free over the phone. Is that true? That's who the carrier used to be on this phone. Oh and according to my friend who gave me this phone, it has been reported stolen like a year or so ago. Can it still be unlocked? And if so, would that be wise? Also, is there such a thing as unlock code generators? And, does my phone need to be rooted first before unlocking it? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated! I want to be able to use this phone as a prepaid.
