    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?

    They probably have a contact on the inside that just pushes the IMEI through.

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

    I want to be able to do a factory unlock for the iPhone. That way I can use it on ANY carrier.

    There are tons of threads where people are discussing the imei unlocks with new ones appearing every day. Here is an example.

    As far as AT&T not helping you, save yourself the effort and spend $7 -$10 on ebay to unlock it.

    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.
