This device has been flagged for fraud
A friend of mine (Friend 1) gave me an iPhone 11 Pro that was given to him by another friend of mine (Friend 2) who had it carrier-locked to AT&T under his account. I submitted the device to be unlocked yesterday, November 5, at 1:27AM CST, and received a notification that the device could not be unlocked due to being flagged for fraud at 3:27PM CST.
Both Friend 1 and Friend 2 expressed confusion as to how this could be, as Friend 1 did not use the device as a phone due to not having an AT&T account/phone number, and Friend 2 has not possessed/held the device for some time as he is currently working/living in Georgia whilst myself and Friend 1 are in Texas. Is there any way to get this phone properly unlocked from AT&T or am I out of luck trying to get this device carrier-unlocked?
Also, Friend 2 will be back in town for the holidays, so would it be possible for him to get it carrier-unlocked at a local AT&T store (not an authorized reseller) when he returns since he is the original account/device owner?
Any and all assistance would be appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help.
