How to unlock an ATT locked phone without any ATT current service

When I go to ATT site to unlock this phone it asks me for an ATT phone number which I don't have.  How can I unlock this phone which is locked to ATT but no current ATT service.   

I have been spending quite some time trying to figure this out.  Please help.

 

Thanks

Where did you get the phone if you don't know the number or have an AT&T account?

I bought the phone on ebay.  But since it is a iphone 11, it can not be more than 1 year old.  I do not have access to the original owner to get att number

Age makes no difference. It it's locked (hopefully not blocked) to AT&T then getting it unlocked could prove to be very difficult if not impossible. eBay huh. Caveat emptor.

I hope someone can provide a hint to help me.  If you don’t know how to do it, you don’t have to waste time and space here.

There’s an option to unlock as a non customer.

thanks for you comment.  I have spent lots of time searching related website and have not seen that option.  Can you be more specific?   Thanks
