    Unlock AT&T Samsung Captivate SGH-i897

    I'm on Rogers network in Canada so I decided to buy the AT&T Captivate. I LOVE this phone. Problem is that I can't get it unlocked. I tried calling AT&T but they said they couldn't unless I had a phone number associated to the phone. What eva. I've tried several 3rd party dealers on the internet including eBay. Nada. The good part is that I've been getting my money refunded. LOL. Any suggestions?

    I just got back from the states with the Captivate and also am on Rogers. I have yet to try the unlocking companies but good to know they refund your money. Just for reference, which ones did you use?

    I will try and write back if it works for me.

    Good luck!

    I've lost track of which ones. The most recent one's were Cheapunlocks and MobileCanada. They said they don't have one. Guess it's a wait and see and keep digging.

    If you know someone on AT&T, they are supposed to unlock your phone!

    Just ask someone that you know on AT&T for the unlock code.

    Check this thread over on XDA, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=729284

    Long and short of it is AT&T claim the Captivate is an AT&T exclusive phone for the next 10 months and won't unlock it, whether you have an AT&T account or not.

    Keep us posted, this is one of the reasons why I went with the unlocked Euro model instead. I heard at&t wouldn't give out unlock codes even to their tenured clients or those who would be traveling overseas.

    Unlockitnow just gave me an email response saying that they don't have the unlock codes but they can send the cables and software to unlock it on the PC. I don't think that'll work either. Guess It's a road trip back to AT&T. Sucks because I love the Captivate.

    Yeah. Sadly it looks like I have to head back down to return my captivate. The bad thing is I ditched the boxes and original manuals, but kept all the cables and buds and stuff and Receipt.

    ugh! damn you ATT!

    Hey yjyu,

    I tried that one along with 6 or 7 others. They don't work... The weird thing is some of them have ads that say specifically the captivate. Or even have youtube videos saying they can unlock the phone when they can't. I don't understand it.

    I have returned mine and will have to look elsewhere..maybe europe for an unlocked GSM phone...sigh!
