how would i know my number at which my phone is locked to ,

SO , 

 i bought a iphone 13 , from At&t from my friends account . but i get only the iphone 13 , no any carrier or sim card , 

 but it was locked to AT&T carrier only , 

 i used it with my wifi , and moved to , Pakistan . 
 now i want to use it with other carriers as in Pakistan AT&T is not avaliable . 
 but my friend had lost the sim card , and the bills , so we dont know the number and the account to which i can pay my total bills to get it unlocked. 
 how can i unlock this device ?  
 i even dont have any AT&T account.

Your “friend” should have unlocked the phone before selling it to you.  AT&T isn’t going to discuss account info, including phone or account numbers, balances due, etc. other than with the actual account holder.  Use the unlocking portal.


All you need is the IMEI number.  But if the phone isn’t eligible for unlocking, you aren’t going to get it unlocked.
