I'm currently on AT&T, and I have the chance to purchase a T-Mobile Micro Sim Card.
Does unlocking the phone mean I'll be able to get 4.1.2. since I'll be on T-Mobile's network?
Long story short I'm trading my Galaxy Nexus for a T-Mobile SGS3 and I want to know if the phone can be unlocked and function on the att network, data and all. I've seen some discussion about the unlocking process and it involves unlock code websites that seem sketchy.
I want to root my phone so I can use mobile hotspot. However, I am afraid to do it because after I've used it for 3 months, I can call T-mobile to unlock it so I can use the phone overseas when I go on vacation. I am afraid that if I root my phone, T-mobile won't be able to unlock it for me or they will find out and refuse to unlock it.
micro sd card locking metal bracket broke !!!.was given phone from friend to see if i can get it going well somehow the stock rom isnt in the phone cuz all there is is a android logo on screen.after reset tried to restore from internal memory nothing there.and of course the micro sd card doesnt lock into place cuz there is no metal lock to hold it.i found the stock roms to flash back to stock but
It was back in January when it became illegal to unlock your mobile phone or tablet, which ticked a lot of people off. In most situations, the carrier would unlock it for you, but they didn’t have to. Well fast forward nearly 11 months, and things have changed. The FCC and CTIA have reached an agreement allowing you to unlock your mobile phone or tablet.
I'm confused; all threads I've read mention "unlocking" only when dicussing rooting. Does a phone need to be rooted in order to "unlock" mobile network options, e.g., if taking hardware over to a different carrier than the one through which the phone was purchased?
Please advice as I cannot seem to find this info out for myself. Thanks!
