All requests to unlock a AT&T phone has to be submitted via the unlock portal. Have you tried the portal and what was the reply from AT&T.

If your phone is eligible and meets the requirement, submit unlock request at the link below.  FYI AT&T does not sell phones outside of this US.

yes i tried.  He says he owes the phone.  I think the first buyer has a debt, but the debt does not belong to me.

FYI, AT&T does not provide support via email and therefore there is no email address for support. You must use the portal. If you are denied an unlock code return the phone.   As a non customer, AT&T will not help you and they don't have to.
