Re: iPhone unlocking questions and discussion

I have a 3G that I purchased from a friend. It was unlocked and jailbroken. I am and have been an ATT customer for many years and have an account in good standing. I updated the phone to IOS 5.1 and then I tried to get the factory unlock on this phone and was told that they (ATT) will not unlock as "No valid current or former mobile/account number associated with request". There was a link on the notice that I received pointing to a PDF to the General Eligibility requirements for unlocking the iphone. I read that document and I can not find anywhere in that document where it says that you must be the original owner or that the phone must have been on your specific account. Why will they not unlock my phone?
