    Motorola Microtac Select 3000e

    I have a Motorola microtac select 3000e, branded BellSouth Mobility DCS. This is one of the first GSM phones that I got back in the mid-to-late 90s here in the southeast United States when GSM first hit. So I decided to hit eBay up and see what I can find. After while I found one. It looks fairly new in the box has the original SIM card, the IMEI numbers on the phone, internally, and on the box all match. My dilemma is, unlocking it. BellSouth Mobility DCS eventually became AT&T, and per AT&T unlocking policy they are happy to give me the unlock code however every time I give them the IMEI number they say it's not valid. Whether I use their tool online or speaking to a rep over the phone. I know the IMEI number is in fact correct, so why are they unable to generate one?? Also whenever I give that IMEI number to the rep over the phone she types it in and digs around a little bit and it actually comes up the make and model device on her end that she can see but when she sends a support ticket over to the unlocking or engineering department or whatnot they simply send back a message every time saying invalid IMEI. Any thoughts?

    The phone is so old I doubt ebay will have any unlocks.
