I was wondering how these people on ebay get so many phones to unlock. I purchased a phone from ebay, contacted AT&T and they said I must fax them the original receipt. I tried 3 more times and even the international number and got the same response every time. I tried to do it over the web and again I must fax receipt. How are these people doing it? AT&T said they would not take my ebay receipt. I tried to email AT&T but you must have an AT&T account. I tried to register but again you must have an AT&T account. Any help folks?

I don't get it what do you want from AT&T if you don't have account with them?

You don't need AT&T to do it for you. As mentioned, there are many discussions about this and you can pay a small for this via eBay.
