I am planning to these Veers as gifts. Do we need proof of purchase to get the free unlock codes from AT&T ?

I got 4 out of 5 unlock codes from ATT. They had to ask me for my SSN to verify that I am an ATT customer. They would not give the unlock codes unless I am an ATT customer. I happen to have a current account with a Samsung Galaxy S2. The 5th one they created a case and submit, and promised to reply within 10 days.

Now, I don't have a T Mobile Sim card to input the unlock codes. Any idea? I need to call a friend to see if his is T Mobile.

Just called the number in the OP, got my unlock code in less than 5 minutes. I guess they changed the menus because now you need to press 1 ("other options") then 0 ("talk to a CS representative") to talk to someone.

No need for an SSN or anything - I'm not even an AT&T customer.

Thank you!

- For everyone (not just ATT customer)
- Provide IMEI.
- Unlock Code for some phones may not be in the database YET. (the customer rep told me that all the code will come within a month. just be patient.)

1. I live in Canada.
2. I purchased an AT&T locked HP Veer on a recent trip to the USA.
3. I followed the above instructions and the AT&T customer rep told me that although she did not have an unlock code for me offhand, she did open a support ticket and I should be sent the unlock code via email by January 9, 2012.

So, I'm in holding pattern until I receive that code. I guess I will just have to be content playing with my 32GB Touchpad until my little Veer is fully functional on my existing carrier's SIM and data plan. I am really looking forward to using the mite-sized cell phone. It has a solid construction and with WebOS, I'm sure it will be a pleasure to use, I can't wait!

I will update you all when I receive the unlock code.

Amiably,

Sam

All,

Today I received the unlock code from AT&T! It worked like a charm. I am loving my diminutive HP Veer via my wireless provider (Rogers.com) in Toronto, Canada. Thanks to the original poster of this information hkgolden1988!

All is Well.

Sam

Thanks for this posting. I purchased a Veer through Amazon. I received it in Vellore, India. After seeing your post, I followed your steps and received the Unlock Code from AT&T.

I tried the procedures as informed by AT&T to get the phone unlocked. AT&T's instructions show that soon after the phone is switched on after other service provider's sim is inserted, SimLock application will appear. I do not get this application. I am stuck here in this step. Instead, it shows the palm profile - to sign into my profile or create new profile. even after waiting for longer time, it shows only that. Nothing else. There is a phone symbol at the bottom. If I click it, 3 options appear : Emergency call, Call Customer Service and Cancel. If I click the emergency call phone dial pad appears with number 911. Deleting it and inserting with phone number and calling phone goes to the screen asking for the "Enter Unblock Code screen" with number pad to input. then if I insert the Unlock code given by AT&T, it shows as "Pin incorrect. try again". That is all I get. I have not tried more than 3 times with the code provided by AT&T. As AT&T stated that trying with incorrect code continuously for more than 5 times in a row, it will get locked permonently to AT&T, I shut down the phone.

Is there any other procedure to be adopted to get the SimLock application? Or is there any other method to unlock the Veer 4G? If there is any other Thread in this forum, kindly highlight it to me.

Thank you very much in advance.

You should search for the 'free veer unlock by Dogbert' . He provided a procedure/software to get the unlock code for your veer.

Good luck.

Subject: Subsidy Device Unlock Request

THIS IS AN AUTOMATED EMAIL PLEASE DO NOT REPLY BACK TO "OKCQSubsidyUnlock" AS ALL MESSAGES SENT TO THIS EMAIL ADDRESS ARE AUTOMATICALLY DELETED WITHOUT BEING READ. PLEASE CONTACT CUSTOMER SERVICE 1-800-331-0500 FOR ADDITIONAL ASSISTANCE.


Dear AT&T Valued Customer,

We recently received your request for the unlock code on the following device:

EMAIL: -
CASE: CM20111018-
MOBILE: Non-ATT
MANUFACTURER: HP
MODEL: P160UNA
IMEI: -


Due to the age or the brand of your device, the unlock code is no longer available in the AT&T database. Device unlock codes are programmed into the device at the time of manufacture. If the unlock code is not in our database, AT&T must contact the manufacturer of the device to obtain the unlock code.

Accordingly, we have attempted to contact the original manufacturer of your device to obtain the unlock code on your behalf. Unfortunately, our efforts in obtaining the unlock code from the manufacturer were not successful. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.

Please reconfirm the first 15 digits of your IMEI by typing *#06# on your device’s keypad. If the IMEI number listed above does not match, please contact AT&T Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500 and reference the case number shown above.

For information about upgrading to a new AT&T device please go to att.com/wireless or call Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500 or 001-916-843-4685 if outside of the U.S.

Thank you for contacting AT&T Mobility. We appreciate your business.
I also received the unlock code from AT&T. When I tried the new veer to power on with AIRCEL (India) SIM (GPRS SIM to start with), the phone showed only the Palm profile app to be entered and there was no SIMLock application to enter the unlock code. I am stuck at this level. Can any one give me a solution for this phone. Is there any problem with GPRS sim or with the phone? How to get the SIMLock app as mentioned by AT&T's email as soon as it is booted with non AT&T's sim?

What happened after this post. Did you get the Veer unlocked? If so, please mention the steps. It will be of good help to me and others as well.

The problem is that the carrier/operators are stored in the CarrierDB. There are many carriers/operators that are not included in the database.

Follow the instructions in the following topic to get it activated:

Just called ATT. (from Canada) They couldn't find my unlock code so they opened a case for me...now we wait and see.
BTW this phone was activated on ATT already so it has been used in their data base.

You should try to use the unlock software form Dogbert. I just unlocked 5 Veers using his tools. It took me a bit longer than expected due to the ubuntu serial driver setup.

Good luck.

btw for our veers, the imei on the box and phone are different...i think there is an additional 2 numbers somewhere, cant rem which is the correct one.

Hi I just wondered that the AT&T customer support team has been providing unlocking codes for every phone. According to me, its not possible, because any service provider can not hold all IMEI numbers of phones existing in a nation. There is an another way to get the unlocking key in a safe way that there are sites such as providing unlocking codes for wide range of phone models. And if we need any instructions on the procedure of unlocking phone we may get that from

IDK how many times I've read a post saying the unlock code the poster was sold did not work...

Just use Dogbert's Method. No foolin' around.

Just picked up a Veer for a backup phone for only $50.00 and will use when I go to the beach, out in bad weather, etc. Runs through AT&T, but no matter will just forward my Verizon Pre3 phone to it when I go out. I can also use it on my travels to Mexico and run on Telcel instead of the CDMA Iusacell system. After reading some of the comments, it sounds like I may have a bit of a time getting this phone up to date on 2.2.4 or is it really that difficult? BTW, it is an unlocked phone that has its base software with AT&T.

I'm from a country outside the usa and used the 1800 cs number calling from my cellphone, i had to wait almost 4ever but it was worthy, the rep first asked me if i knew about their website they have where i can get the unlock code i and said no i didin't, so he said lets try first with the imei and he gave me the code and that's it! Unlock! And for free, great! Good luck..

I am trying to unlock a veer, i am able to start the pre_keygen but I can't get pre3_veer_unlock to stay up for me to enter the serial. It comes up and go away quickly. Do you know why it does that?

It's a Python executed program... If Python worked for the keygen then your Python should be good.

Keygen is step 5. Step 6 is USB Passthrough. I assume you enabled that correctly???

Step 7 is the diagnostic drivers. Did those get installed on your computer? I.E.: did Windows ask for the drivers? If not did you install them manually???

You've got to have those drivers for step 8, querying the phone for the unlock...
