    Does anyone know if ATT is locking the Focus to their network?

    The why I care is boring, just a yes/no would be great.

    Yes it is locked to ATT. I think you can call ATT to see if you can get the unlock code for it or otherwise go to the xda developer forum to see if there is a way to unlock it.
    What provider were you looking to use it on? Because if it is Tmobile, I don't believe the 3g will work on their network but edge will.

    T-Mobile's 3G is incompatible with ATT's. And yes, the Focus is locked to ATT. Not only locked to ATT, but SIM locked to the SIM that comes with the phone. I tried to pop in my ATT BlackBerry 9700 SIM and it told me it was invalid. I had to call and go through the activation process.

    Thanks. That's good to know. I should be getting my Focus in the mail today. First thing I will do is call At&t to activate my sim.

    I just bought my new Focus locked to at&t. since I live in Mexico had to unlock it, after three vendors attempt finally got one vendor who did it in less than 24 hours.

    I am happily using my Focus in Mexico, good device...
