    Has anyone had any success getting the unlock code from AT&T for the Atrix HD, model MB866 phone yet? It's the code subsidy that unlocks the SIM card so you can swap it out and use another SIM card. I'm going to be traveling overseas and want to unlock my phone just like I've done with other AT&T phones in the past without issue. This time there's a problem. AT&T says they can't unlock it because Motorola hasn't provided them the codes yet......WRONG!......I called Motorola and they told me "of course we've provided these codes to all the carriers including AT&T, it's probably that they just don't want to provide it to you for fear you might switch carriers".

    Now I have a 2 year contract with AT&T and no plans to switch because I'll be hit with a big cancellation fee and just want to use my Atrix phone overseas with a local SIM card to save on charges. AT&T's int'l overseas calling package is a joke, very expensive. Worst case is I'll buy a cheap, local phone with a pre-paid SIM card and use it if I can't get the unlock codes for my Atrix HD. I do see several sites advertsing to sell the unlock codes for the Atrix HD phone. Back to my question: has anyone had any success dealing with AT&T in getting the unlock code for the Atrix HD phone? Thanks

    You might want to wait a few days for the whole "unlocking is illegal" fear wagon to die down if you are truly going overseas. Or you could try calling and hoping to get a different representative or ask them what AT&T's newest policy on unlocking the sim cards for customers going overseas is. But I'm guessing that's why AT&T is being tight releasing the codes right now.

    Did a little research and found this location that offers, for a fee, to provide the unlock code:
    Unlock Motorola Atrix HD MB886 - How to Unlock Motorola Atrix 3 HD LTE by Unlock Code | CellUnlocker.net

    Haven't tried it yet and will post any others I find.

    Here's another one I haven't tried yet.

    I downgraded my phone to a non-smart phone today. I just called att costumer service. They said my atrix hd was "not eligible for unlock". Told me to call back in about 30 days. At least a time limit.

    There's an online form you have to fill out now. Put'unlock code' into the search box on the AT&T site an the first response will direct you to where you need to go. You will still need your IMEI code, as well as an email address. It may take 2 to 5 days to get it.. I did it over the weekend an got it in less than 30 minutes. But had to wait 24 hours to unlock phone. Email will explain
