Down the rabbit hole
I bought my GSM 4S off of Craiglist thinking it wouldn't matter that it's locked to AT&T's network as I intended to use it with an AT&T MVNO. Fast forward a year and now I need to use it on the local networks in London and Göteborg. AT&T refuses to unlock it since I'm not the original account holder. Now what?

Do what I did, use a family or friends info. All you need is name, email, last four of social and their pin
