Did you ask godaddy ..they have a24 support Phone number
Most likely the reason you cant transfer out is you or the seller changed contact information.. that automatically puts a 60 day hold (no transfers)on the names ..a security precaution

I've never had a problem with moving domains away from Go Daddy, the hardest part is finding your way through their muddled control panel to remove the registrar lock. You should get email confirmation as the admin contact once the lock is removed then your transfer will go through. Just try to unlock again.
I assume that these domains are not brand new purchases, transfers are usually restricted in the first 60 days.

You'll be able to transfer the names normally after the 60-day period has passed. Don't make any more changes to the contact info or the waiting period will start over.

Also, be sure to change the status back to "transfer lock" during the 60 day waiting period. Better to be safe than sorry.

Crap, this sounds like I'm going to have to create an account there to put the names in until the 60 days pass. Both enon and GD have less-than-intuitive interfaces, but I have gotten used to enom... I really don't want to have to learn GD's again.

I think eNom's interface is significantly easier and faster than GoDaddy's. But that's just personal opinion. If you change ANY registrant details at GoDaddy (like in a push from 1 account to another), you invoke GoDaddy's internal 60-hold policy. You can't transfer away for 60-days.

I wonder if removing the lock would invoke the 60 day hold? Each of these domains were locked first.

No it won't at GoDaddy

I've created an account and had the two names pushed into the it.... it's a cumbersome process, but I guess in 60 days I can transfer the names to my registrar of choice.... thanks for all your help!
