    I rooted my phone a little over a year ago. Due to other factors, I factory reset it, and it upgraded to current stock for SGH-T999. Contract is up and they sent me the factory unlock code, but it will not work.
    I took it to a phone repair shop and they could not unlock it either.

    What to do?

    Thanks

    Hold on, SGH-T999? T999 is S3 if I recall. It upgraded automatically via OTA? What steps are you following to unlock it?

    I had the same issue on my rooted S2 skyrocket. I could not unlock running CM11.

    Reflashed to stock, and the unlock code worked. FWIW, I unlocked through the automatic prompt it gives on startup using another carrier's SIM.
