I’m attempting to unlock an At&t phone which I own.  I’m being told the account belongs to another line.  I paid off the old balance on the account, and then purchased a 30 day prepaid sim plan.  What do I need to do to unlock this phone?  I attempted to do so online, but I get an error message.  When I spoke with At&T support; they were unable to help me. 


I paid over $1,000.00 for this phone and I’d really like to use it.  I don’t have strong At&t service where I live/work so I want to unlock it to use my Verizon SIM card in it. 


Can you kindly assist me?  What do I need to do to get an unlock code for this phone?  There is no balance and no post paid plan attached to the phone’s IMEI #.


I’d greatly appreciate your assistance with this matter.
