unlock t-mobile from samsung

magenta4880391

    I have had the unpleasant "catch-22" of being told that the T-Moble version of the Samsung S8+ that I purchased directly from Samsung on their website is not unlockable (for use abroad with a local sim card) by them...only by t-mobile.

     

    Then T-Mobile tells me my phone is "not in their system" and therefore not unlockable by them!

    How to unlock this phone for an upcoming trip?

    Must I pay these (probably illegal) third-party online unlockers money to unlock a legitimately purchased and

    paid off phone?
