need to unlock 'free' tablet

brett_bellmore

    A few months back we purchased new phones at the local T mobile store, and were handed a 'free' tablet by the sales person, and only later discovered we were being billed for it. Well, we ended up stuck with the thing, an Alcatel Onetouch, even though we'd no use for it, and only took it because we'd been lied to about it being "free".

     

    So, went in, paid the thing off so as to get the charge taken off our account, and now I'm trying to get the thing unlocked, so I can give it as a gift to somebody overseas. And it's starting to look like the local store screwed us over a second time, it wasn't on the account long enough to qualify for unlocking.

     

    Anybody else have any experience at getting out of this situation with an unlocked tablet?
