    Hello,

    I'm planning a switch to Android and I intend to buy an unlocked phone. Are the "no annual contract" phones sold by AT&T unlocked?

    Thanks and cheers!

    I don't think At&t sells any unlocked phone if they can help it but as long as you don't owe them money they are fairly welcome to unlock it for you.

    Do you know a legit online or physical store that sells unlocked Galaxy S5 or HTC M8 that work with the LTE network from AT&T?

    Thanks for the reply!

    You'll probably have to ask AT&T to unlock them, which they should do with no problem since you're buying full-retail.

    Best Buy has unlocked black and white Galaxy S5s available. Amazon probably has some unlocked S5s as well. Not sure about LTE capability though.

    You can get an unlocked HTC One M8 directly from HTC.

    The description on the best unlocked says 3g, no mention of 4g.

    They are still locked but since you are buying it full price you can ask them for the lock code and they'll give you it.

    Doesn't AT&T require at least 60 days of continuous service before they'll unlock for you?

    Not if you buy it out right. I have my M7 unlocked from att less than 20 days later by just calling and asking nicely. But I have never had my service turned off and my payments are always been made on time these past 4-5 years! Might help some if you have had an account with them for some time as well.
