Be forewarned that ATT's former liberal policy for unlocking seems to have ended. ATT now requires 12 months of prepaid service for unlock. Not sure of eBay pay to play unlockers. BBuy also charges a restocking fee on returns if you plan on trying the unlock route and aren't interested in ATT.

  trust me. there will be some trolls still claiming that they just got unlock codes from ATT without any problem.

I bought this phone on black Friday and it's not that great. The touchscreen is not very responsive and the camera is mediocre. But, you get what you pay for.

A phone like this is great even without having a service on it!

I use one at home for media needs. I have loaded it up with various entertainment apps and also roku / fire TV remote control apps.. and use the phone to control it. Plus have numerous chromecast apps installed on it.

Phone like this can also be used as a GPS in car. Just install here maps and download some states on it.. and you have a really good offline maps app.

Yeah totally agree.  Getting an Android touchscreen device for $14.99 is a deal in itself.  I have a couple phones which have never been activated that I use with my drone and HD action cams as remote monitors and the occasional media player.  If I happen to drop it in the lake while using it, I'd be disappointed, but no biggie.

  You will get a SIM, but no airtime.

  I haven't bought one since the change, but the eBay code sellers haven't gone up on their prices.

 I think it is actually six months of prepaid service that is needed to trigger a GoPhone unlock now. Not that that makes a difference for these deals. I guess I lucked out with the Ascent deal a couple months ago.

Bought three on BF for $9.99 each.
Unlocked all three from AT&T portal.
One wouldn't recognize any SIM (after unlocking) so I am using it as a media device.
For other two, I got a FP $0.99 SIM and using one as dedicated GPS with waze(with the data provided by FP).
Third one is a backup for any other requirements e.g. tethering etc.

please confirm when did this stop any other way I can unlock. Does ATT check every request for unlock or only high end mobiles.
