I signed up as a member, but I can't access the simunlock request page without a t-mobile’s phone number. Should I sign up for a t-mobile’s phone number for simunlock? I'm working abroad now,

so I have a phone number from another country, but can't I check it with that?
iCloud has registered, i registered to find my phone, and i registered on the app, but i can't use another company's sim because it has a t-mobile's sim lock. Should I buy a t-mobile's sim card online and apply for sim unlock?
