Well, seems like Motorola doesn't consider this second-handphone I bought eligible for unlocking. Should I give up now? Or try to reach their support on a weekday to get an unlock code?

re: android phone, legalese 

So eventually, after registering the IEMI of my phone with my account on Moto's website, I could get an unlock code :flan_hurrah:

Phone is running lineageos now. The house did not burn down, and apparently I am still alive. Phew.
