De-Brand [ATT] Lumia 640 LTE for T-Mobile WiFi calling and Band 12 LTE [xda-developers.com]


Copied from prior deal, since the same questions are being asked over and over.

How to unlock, :

*** Do not turn on the phone with SIM card with which phone came or below steps may not work**

*****DO NOT OPEN THE BOX---THE NEEDED INFO IS ON A LABEL ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE BOX****

Simple steps:
1. Go to below link and Accept terms and click Continue
https://www.att.com/deviceunlock/#/
2. It is very important to select "Non-AT&T Mobility customer"
3. Provide Basic details , IMEI and email address.
4. You you'll immediately receive email, YOU HAVE TO CONFIRM via the link in email.
5. Wait for your Unlock code to be delivered in email within 48 hrs.

There have been reports of 'generic'(gmail,ymail,hotmail) email addresses getting rejected. Use a non-generic(work ,edu) address if possible.

No sim needed in the phone at all to call up the unlock screen.
DO not turn on the phone, remove the ATT sim before anything. Now you are safe.
Boot the phone, get past first "No Sim" error by closing.
Tap the "Phone" icon to bring up Sim error again and close again.
You can now access the dial pad, dial ##7820# and you will get the
unlock screen. Enter Unlock Code and hit enter.
Wait about a minute or so... you should then see the "Unlocked" padlock screen.
Reboot the phone. You are done. You can redial the ##7820# to verify it is still unlocked

Disclaimer: This method may brick your phone! Back up all data. I am not responsible if you break your phone. Use the steps below at your own discretion! Please be careful.

Supports all bands used by T-Mobile, including LTE band 12 (700bc).

For international use, 4 of 5 WCDMA bands are covered (missing 900MHz). LTE band 7 is supported, used in Europe and elsewhere, but with a lot of foreign LTE bands missing you should expect it to connect on WCDMA when overseas.

GSM network: 850MHz, 900MHz, 1800MHz, 1900MHz
WCDMA network: Band 1 (2100MHz), Band 2 (1900 MHz), Band 4 (1700/2100 MHz), Band 5 (850MHz)
LTE FDD network10: Band 17 (700MHz), Band 2 (1900MHz), Band 4 (1700/2100 MHz), Band 5 (850MHz), Band 7 (2600MHz), Band 28 (700MHz), Band 12 (700MHz)

Best phone $30 can buy. I've gotten quite a few of these for family/friends whenever this comes up. This time I got another 2 for friends.

Really like this phone. Was suppose to be my back-up, but now my everyday device. Grabbed two more, though not exactly sure why.

Debating getting one of these for no reason at all. Dedicated GPS with offline maps maybe? Media player for travel so I don't drain my phone battery? Dust collector?

I just can't fathom a device like this being $30.

I got a Moto E for $10 that runs circles around this. Yes, I have both. Windoze mobile platform just sucks. Even Microsoft apps are better on Android.

I use the 640 as an MP3 player in the car. Since the music software sucks, I just leave it on random.

awesome deal.. I just got this from BB on 2/3 for $48. Called up and got a pricematch to this, no problem. It took me about 2 days to get the unlock code from t-mobile, then about an hour to debrand it and load on a t-mobile ROM... result is a 640 with all t-mobile functions (vis voicemail, wifi calling, etc.) and band 12.
