    I know that an AT&T locked device will work with Cricket wireless (former AIO wireless) but are there any other MVNOs that they will work on such as Net10 or StraightTalk? Thanks!

    Straight Talk. I believe H2O Wireless as well. Not sure about Net 10.

    I *think* it would work with Consumer Cellular as well.

    Cricket as well, since it's basically just AT&T.

    another idea!!!!

    if you lend your iPhone to someone with who has had AT&T service for 60 days prior to him using your iPhone, he can get an unlock for you ! in less then 5 days

    you might need to have him check with AT&T to make sure the imei is on his account so it has an "established history"

    i tried out the amazon fire phone, as something to laugh at!! and i found out
    that AT&T has a new unlocking policy for NON CUSTOMERS !!!!

    if you never had AT&T service, you can still ask for an unlock, and they just might give it to you!!


    if you go to AT&T directly and pay maybe $90 for 2 months of postpaid service, you can score an unlock that way too

    if you go to cricket you will need 6 months before they will give you an unlock

    i came to almost getting burned on that fire phone. you really should call 800 331 0500 and speak to an AT&T rep to make sure the phone you buy isn't financed in the first place.

    i went to AT&T with a fire phone and AT&T told me it was a store demo and they refused to sell me service
    i went to AT&T to ask for it to be unlocked and they told me it was still under contract
    various imei check websites gave me the green light and said that it wasn't blacklisted
