***Unlock?
Unfortunately the unlock process through the unlock portal is more strict than it was a couple years ago. You must fulfill their requirements to unlock. This phone still works out of the box with other carriers like Cricket Wireless, H2o, Red Pocket, Tracfone, Straight Talk and maybe others. Updates from other carriers? These carriers won't send updates to AT&T phone though. Tracfone has sent updates according to a poster. AT&T sends out updates so borrow someone's AT&T sim.

Here is my past expired post with more detail and the issue with unlock portal.

YES.... The Straight Talk sim works with an AT&T compatible phone. You may need to adjust the APN settings like I did for red pocket for mms and data but it will work. Easy process. However you won't receive updates for the Moto z2 force because only AT&T sim can get updates for AT&T phone. Someone said tracfone also gives updates.... Option? Tracfone sim and $15 plan is like $16 so you could use that for an update.... or ask a relative or friend to borrow their AT&T sim and install just to get the updates (security and system). Lots of people use AT&T service and I don't think it is a big deal to ask someone to borrow their sim just to get an update.

Just a heads up.

I bought this on the last deal.
It will not unlock. You will receive a message defining the knock request bc the device is related to fraud.

I reached out to the seller on eBay and they basically told me to kick rocks...

Wow. Motorola sold out quickly today and I see the prices are pretty steep on eBay. I have it. It works well but I prefer the fast charger.

I originally thought we could unlock from day 1 like we have in the past like 2 years ago. However the unlock requirements for the portal changed and it says the phone needs to have 60 days of service to be unlocked. The phone needs to have an active service or it will show as fraud.... 60 days to unlock.

"Your service must be active for at least 60 days with no past due or unpaid balance."

For prepaid? It is 6 months service.

Can some genius on Ebay unlock the phone for like 10 bucks? I bought my S7 active 2 years ago with a balance and couldn't unlock with AT&T but that was easily solved with paying $10 on Ebay

A couple years ago, the requirements were less strict and the unlock process was easier. Now it is more strict because of the "60 days service" requirement to unlock but the locked phone will still work with a handful of carriers like cricket, red pocket and more out of the box.

Don't be fooled by battery size.

It was a concern for me as I value battery life and I was coming from a battery king moto z play (9 hours screen time over 3 days on 1 charge) but I am pleasantly surprised that I am getting 6 and half hours screen time over 1 day on 1 charge with the Moto z2 Force. It definitely performs better than battery size spec sheet. With normal usage from me, I can get 2 days. The phone is so thin and light compared to my Moto z play.... I got a thin profile 2,220 mAh battery mod and I really haven't needed it so i majority use style shell but the battery mod works great and really doesn't add much thickness and weight compared to style shell. If anything, the battery mod adds more grip and comfort.

Moto Z2 Force (very light 5.04 ounces) + battery mod (2.5 ounces) = 4,950 total mAh with total weight at 7.54 ounces. That would easily be getting me +3 days battery life.... An iPhone 8 Plus alone weighs 7.13 ounces. I can definitely carry around a Moto Z2 Force with a battery mod connected comfortably.... The reason that I don't is simply that I have been happy with the Moto Z2 Force battery life. No Moto Z Play battery life but still solid battery life.

The reasoning for smaller battery? I am sure it helps to sell more battery mods but with the phone being thinner and lighter at 5.04 ounces (smaller battery, lighter shatter shield screen vs glass, lighter aluminum rear), it does make it more comfortable to use & carry around with the mods. For example it is more comfortable to use & carry around a battery mod, camera mod or speaker mod with my moto z2 force vs my moto z play. It doesn't sound much with like a 1 ounce difference and slight thickness but I can feel it.

Dang OP, why you doing this to me LOL
I just started my return process for the one I got from the previous deal you posted (due to ghost touch issues), but since I've already invested in case and screen protector (which are still on the way), I'm now wondering if I should try my luck with another one

update: went ahead and bought it. hopefully I have better luck this time
