For world travelers on AT&T and T-Mobile, it's understandable that you want to unlock your phone when you travel overseas. In a kind gesture, T-Mobile has reduced the requirements that must be met prior to them unlocking your beloved wireless device. Before today, FlexPay, postpaid, and prepaid (provided you've had a minimum $10 balance and have refilled the account in the past month) customers were required to wait 90 days before receiving an unlock code. As it stands now, FlexPay and postpaid customers will be able to receive their code after 40 days of service, while prepaid customers will be able to receive theirs after 60 days of service.
It's important to note that the account must be in good standing, with no service interruptions or past-due balances. It's free, and enables you to put any kind of GSM SIM card in your device. Why not? Hit the comments section and let us know how it goes!
