How to unlock my AT&T locked iPhone

I bought my phone from a friend and it says sim locked in the settings and when i try to unlock it on AT&T device unlock site it says “Looks like the device you want to unlock is active on another AT&T account.” Is there any way to fix it? And what does it mean it’s active on another AT&T account?

Thank You.

And what does it mean it’s active on another AT&T account?

It probably means the phone is still associated with your friend’s account. They either need to remove it from their account or ask them to request the unlock.
