    Hello, I'm not very familiar with this phone stuff and was asked by my brother to look for some kind of unlock service. He couldn't get his phone unlocked by AT&T since his contract wasn't up apparently, and from what I can tell 3rd party unlocking services are all wonky right now since AT&T changed up the way they unlocked their phones. Do I have it right?

    He and the rest of my family will be leaving this Sunday for 3 weeks, is there a chance that his phone can be unlocked by then?

    You can keep trying calling AT&T and hope to get a good rep that's willing to do it.
    It's not a guarantee but worth a shot. Or pay over $100 for those 3rd party unlocks.

    Ugh, had to go to the hospital yesterday so I couldn't really follow up.
    I don't think he would mind paying the $100, but are there any reputable ones that would be able to unlock his phone quick?

    I would recommend www.chronicunlocks.com

    Quick, no. Slow, yes.
