Re: No service

This could be a bit of a pickle for you... where did you get the device?

 

Was there an AT&T SIM card in it when you got it?

 

Since AT&T are not bound by Canada's rules for device unlocking (being headquartered in USA), you may wish to engage in a telephone unlocking service available in kiosks in malls or other online-type services.

 

This may be a buyer beware moment...

Canadian carriers are suppose to unlock for free.

However, since AT&T is a US carrier, it has its own rules for unlocking.  Unless you meet the criteria for unlocking, you might be out of luck.

Re: No service

I could re root it and re install the right software to the phone so this way it can read it

That is up to you.  If you are tech savvy.  However, if you make a mistake, that might make the phone more unusable.  

 

I wonder if you could buy an unlock code from some ebay vendors.

If you really believe it's locked to the AT&T network, that might be your only option.

 

If you got the device from someone you know who WAS the account-holder, they could assist in the completion of the carrier issues.

 

I'm guessing that's not the case, though.

Re: No service

The phone is probably locked to AT&T; you will have to have your phone unlocked for any other SIM to work.
