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 have a Huawei mobile broadband dongle which i want to unlock.
I am trying to follow what it says here: http://www.mapmyplace.com/calc/hua.php
I have the NCK unlock code but when it says :
"Just insert a SIM Card which belongs to locked network & Plug your Modem.
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.
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 moved from Chile to the USA, and I couldn't SIM unlock my Galaxy S4 that I bought in Chile (GT-I9505), so I went to T-Mobile and bought a S4 there.
Is there any difference between them, other than broadband?
Like, if I'm running CyanogenMod on my 9505, can I just do a backup and restore it on the T-Mobile phone?
Thanks in advance.
