    Thread is now closed and this discussion is done. There are no shortcuts. Pay someone to unlock the phone if you need it done sooner than normal.

    For the record, this thread is now closed due to its prior activity dates before being bumped, hint is that it was previously commented in 2007.

    It is encouraged that if any member wants to...

    If you want a guarantee, buy the phone from the carrier directly and don't try using a BYOP phone that may or may not be compatible for whatever reason. That is the best answer you are going to get...

    I have a good reason that they want to confirm the IMEI first. If the phone was lost or stolen, the carrier doesn't want someone to try to activate it on the same or different network or ask for a...

    Redneck563, Howard Forums is merely an internet site for people to discuss topics, not a resource to unlock your phone. There are advertisers here and elsewhere that offer cell phone unlocking and...

    What is PAU? Not sure what it is.

    I would suggest you do an online chat or call and speak with customer service to get an explanation.

    A possible issue that I see with the idea is that consumers who have technical issues may be forced to reach out to the manufacturer instead of the phone carrier. When I worked for Cingular/At&t as...

    Just wondering, what make/model of phone are you using in your comparison ? Where are you located ?

    One side effect that I forsee is more expensive phones and less frequent upgrades for many customers because of it. Personally I believe that too many customers will react negatively because of the...

    I never had any problem when swapping the SIM. Kept the same phone # and plan/features. The carrier really doesn't care much as long as you continue making payments as scheduled IMHO.

    I guess we can now say that the "potential" Black Friday sales are no longer "potential". :lol:

    With the exception of select business accounts all postpaid carriers only sell phones on a device payment plan paid over 2 years or longer. The days of cellular contracts of yesteryear are mostly...

    You do realize that you can buy unlocked phones in the US already? The issue is when the carriers (postpaid and prepaid) refuse to activate a phone that they don't "support".

    Don't hold your breath on that promise. In my city, they have promised to do so for almost 10 years and still the number of neighborhoods that have it can be counted on my fingers. Pathetic and...

    My T-mobile Magenta plan is unlimited, nothing special. I am subject to throttling when I reach a certain data threshold as with most current plans/features.

    Interesting news article for PA, but not exactly what the OP is asking in the thread topic or what I mentioned earlier.

    Haven't heard anything new. Just keep using it as long as it is still available. Don't forget that grandfathered plans and features are offered as a courtesy for those who have them, there are no...

    I am not sure about Pennsylvania, but in most states it is illegal to wear a headset while driving. It is considered a distraction and a safety concern. Just thought it should be pointed out. A...

    Very clear on the phones and tablets, my Samsung and the Apple devices work just fine. No complaints.

    Definitely make some test calls prior to the scheduled time.

    I can do the same thing with my Samsung Tab S7+ tablet as long as it is connected via Bluetooth with my Samsung Galaxy S9+. Works the same with my mom's original iPhone SE (2016 model) and her iPad....

    Cell phones don't use a gyroscope. They use accelerometers for motion indicating and GPS for location determination/directions

    You can reminisce about the old phone models all you want, but unless you want to start manufacturing your own phones, it won't make any difference. Getting upset about it won't do anything either.
