If you have carrier unlocked (not developer unlock) a Windows Phone, how did you do it and how long after the phone's release were you able to do it. I have succesfully carrier unlocked an htc Surround and a Samsung Focus, but I'm still trying to unlock my htc Titan.
The trick to unlocking a Windows Phone is:
I was able to easily get an unlock code for under $5 on eBay (> 1 year after release). I like to use eBay to get unlock codes because the seller feedback will usually provide a good indication of how legit their service is.
I've unlocked a Windows Phone before (LG Optimus 7 E900h in Telcel, Mexico) and this is what I had to do:
Before starting, be sure to check if your phone may already be unlocked by inserting a SIM card from another carrier. If it works, don't continue :)
If all went well, your phone should be unlocked.
Basically, you get enter your IME number at http://www.cellunlocker.net/, and it will give you an unlock code along with instructions on how to do it. I haven't looked into the site, but if it is legit Maybe it will be what you need.
