What is a Temporary Unlock?

mtnbcstageiv

    My wife and I are traveling to multiple countries for the entire month of August. I have been trying to get information on Temporary Unlocking our Samsung Galaxy Note 9's. Most information I have found is about permanent unlocks. Which I am not interested in. The phones are on an EIP and are in good standing. The T-Mobile reps on the phone are saying we should have no issues with a Temporary Unlock. What is a Temporary Unlock and am I truly eligible?

     

    It is important to note that my wife did a warranty exchange due to charging issues last week. Her phone will not reach 40 days by the time we travel. Will that be an issue.

     

    Thank you in advance.
