AT&T PROVIDER ID FOR 4015T: 4015T-2AAQUS1

ATT unlock portal will state unknown imei. Possible to manually request unlock code from ATT support but huge pain and YMMV. Faster/easier to just buy off ebay.

Unlock the phone for $0.99 from eBay - at checkout send message to seller the IMEI of the phone before submitting payment. Then insert any non AT&T micro sim and enter the NCK unlock code.

I didn't see that anyone else shared this as I was curious to know. There is an update to Kit Kat, from AT&T [att.com] Android 4.4.2

How to upgrade to 4.4.2:
You have to pop in a activated at&t sim card to get OTA. If you don't have one, you can do this:
1. go http://att.com/gophone to activate the sim card came with your phone, when filling imei, just using imei from another basic phone. Or you can generate a random one from google search "imei generator". Then at&t will ask you if this is a basic phone, choose it's a basic phone. You only need to give an email address and zip code to at&t, no other personal information and credit card number needed.
2. When choosing plan, choose the last one 0.10$/minute plan.
3. After activated the sim card, pop it in your phone, open wifi. If you checked ota before, then clear your data, otherwise it will ask you wait for a while to check OTA.

I was just gonna run to Kroger to grab a Tracfone Fuel for $10.00 to use as beater MP3 player but now I'm looking at this little guy. I do use Cricket so this Alcatel makes more sense just in case I ever needed to slip my micro sim card into it. Anyone here ever try one of these?

Are you sure it's unlocked? I't's a ATT Go phone.

At one time if you had an att smart phone you had to sign up for a data plan also.

Is this still required?

Not sure that it applies to non-LTE phones, but you can unlock GoPhones for free via AT&T's Unlock Portal:

https://www.att.com/deviceunlock/#/

EDIT: It's funny too: I had posted this earlier thinking it would be good as a $10 Perk TV phone or MP3 player, then had the mods delete the thread because I didn't think anyone would be interested in it laugh out loud

Thanks & TU. Bought 2 of these for when my kids break their phones again, which will happen again soon I'm sure. Unlock codes are .99 cents on ebay. Pretty sure these will work on cricket and any other AT&T MVNO without unlocking.

I can tell you that I (and many others) got our Lumia 635 GoPhones unlocked for free using the AT&T unlock request without ever having activated them. I think the key is to make sure not to insert a sim card in the phone before asking for the unlock.
