Question2 - After completing all steps tried *#7465625# and got "Connection problem or invalid MMI code" What does this mean.
Answer: I got it to. No idea what it means, but inserted a T-Mobile SIM and made a call - went through.
That's helpful! Sounds promising for those of us who keeping getting the invalid code.

Reps to you and the OP

I was able to go to the unlock when I had ICS installed on my tmo galaxy s3, but after I upgraded to jelly bean I typed in *#197328640# and nothing came up. Guess they 'fixed' it.

While the price for unlocking is somewhere between $10-$15, get your Samsung Galaxy S3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 2 unlocked for free.

It is illegal if you're still under your contract that the phone was acquired with.

I have an ATT GS3 which I got in Oct 2012, but have not used up until now. When I try unlocking this using the instructions, I realized that the last option is different for me. For the final step , what I have is [4]RAT_FREE_SUPPORTING ON

Android version on the phone is 4.0.4. Do I need to upgrade it to latest firmware, before I can unlock using this procedure?.

Thanks in advance for your guidance!

Upgraded to Android Jellybean 4.1 using Kies and the unlock worked fine after that. Thanks OP!

strange thing happens to my phone. I was able to unlock my t-mobile S3 with OP's instructions. However, I took out the SIM card and used on the iphone 4s for a few weeks. Now when I put back the SIM card into the GS3 phone, it asks for security code to be able to use the phone. The problem is I've never set the screen lock with security code in the beginning. How do I bypass this? Thanks!

so if you want to unlock the phone yourself, you just have to ask your carrier now? just ask and then it's legal to unlock by yourself after the deadline or before the deadline? this sounds like you can't use any unlocked phone (ever) if you dont ask them before this deadline.
wait a minute...you're in the business of repairing phones right?

i would at least expect that you would have answers for this type of questions specially when a customer might ask you to do this for them...

because we are not lawyers. the fact that our monthly unlock code subscription froze on that week alerted us not to unlock any phones until we got it right. we could not get any unlock codes for the whole week after that law kicked in. we did not have any legal annoucement from any law agency. so we did not have a clue. in fact, we did not know anything until someone mentioned this on slickdeals last week.

lawyers? I would expect that somebody like you would know this since you're in the phone repair business...doesn't have to be a lawyer to know this...I believe it was plastered over google tech news as soon as it came out...heck I think all tech sites featured this...

and did you really expect that a law agency or any gov't body is going to notify you? be in the know should be a practice...

even a simple google search will yield that the announcement came out late January and not last week...

i dont know what you are talking about. i dont think you even run a mobile service business. that's why you dont know.

we are not aware of this law whatsoever. no redistrubers or anyone have sent us any info about this matter until i found this law posted on this forums.

thanks to our news coverage. this law has been under nationwide news coverage radar until someone brought it up just a few days before this law kicked in.

yes, it's last month. it was a mistyped. but you got the idea. the law has passed since Nov 2012 but no news covered it until a few days before the final date.

we are not lawyers. so we didnt have to inteprete every single word from that bill to know what we should do. we had to talk to our competitors and friends to confirm some human-understandable terms before we went on with our unlocking business. most of us (mobile business) were surprised about this new law too, not just us. so there is no big deal that we did not know about it.
