How to de-brand ATT Lumia 640 LTE (Flash T-Mobile ROM)

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)

Unlocking and flashing T-Mobile ROM will enable band 12 if you update the .nvi file. It is confirmed. (see post #337 on xda forum for commands to enable band 12)

Unlocking info, from Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/windowsp...ne_united/

Quote :
Step 1: Don't turn on your phone with the at&t sim card inside! We will be doing a "non-at&t customer" unlock, so turning on the phone will register the phone as a customer phone. You don't want this.
  • This step also applies to other branches of at&t, for example don't power it up with cricket sim card in it either. For safe measure, I just wouldn't power it up with any sim card in it until you have it unlocked. Credit to /u/venom8599 [reddit.com] for the tip!
Step 2: Head on over to the at&t unlock page [att.com], go to the bottom and accept the terms, and continue to the next page [imgur.com].
Step 3: Once on this page, you will need to fill out some information. Make sure you select "non-at&t mobility customer" [imgur.com]. This is the part that makes it easy!
Step 4: Locate your IMEI number [imgur.com]! This is on the inside of your phone. (The yellow rectangle in my picture). Fill in your first & last name, your email, and your IMEI number. Submit the form. Now we wait!
Step 5: Be on the lookout for an important email [imgur.com]! Mine came in two days. This should contain the unlock code and instructions [imgur.com]. (Unlock code should be where red rectangle is). (These steps are the same as step 6).
  • Note: you will probably also receive a "we're still working on it" type email. This is not bad! Most people get them. Don't worry if you get this! Just wait another day!
Step 6: Many of you are done! Congrats! If for whatever reason you couldn't load my image, once you have the unlock code this is how to unlock your device:
  • put in a non-at&t sim card
  • turn on the phone
  • put in your unlock code
  • profit!
Without a non-at&t sim: (credit to /u/HighDensityPolyethyl [reddit.com])
  • enter ##7820# in your dial pad
  • put in the unlock code.
  • profit!!
The email I got from ATT:
Quote :
Thank you for contacting AT&T about unlocking your mobile device.
Congratulations! Here are your unlock instructions:
Your unlock code is: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Ten unsuccessful unlock attempts permanently locks the device to the AT&T network.
1. Switch the device off.
2. Remove the AT&T SIM card.
3. Insert a non-AT&T SIM card.
4. Switch the device on. If prompted, enter the SIM PIN code.
5. Wait for the SIM unlock window to open.
6. Enter the unlock code provided (8 or 20 digits) and press Enter.
7. Power the device off.
8. Power the device on. The device is unlocked.
