It's Not Unusual for the system not to have recorded a paid off phone for a couple of weeks. I would suggest you Wait and try in a couple of weeks.
You should be requesting the unlock as a non-customer.

Greetings @kalub2129!

 

Allow us to assist with your device unlock. We advise that you contact your aunt to submit the device unlock since the primary account holder will need to address any remaining past-due balance that may be attached to the device.

 

Prior to submitting your unlock, make sure the device meets our other eligibility requirements.

 

We hope this info helps.

Hello,

You can go to att.com/deviceunlock and attempt to unlock as “not an att customer”, but if it was from your aunt, I’d have her take a moment to navigate to th site to request unlock from her account to avoid any issues. If there’s a hold up, like not paid off, it would tell her that at that time.
