Trying to unlock paid devices - it doesn't accept

I am trying to unlock two devices that are paid off on AT&T and it keeps coming back to say that "We can't unlock this device because you've tried too many times". I've tried once, maybe twice.

Hello @Zohairz,

I can understand how important it is to unlock devices, especially if you are planning to sell them.  It will be my pleasure to help!

In order to investigate the unlock requests, please send me a private message to @ATTCares.  Within the message, please include your full name, account number and the IMEIs of the phones.  Any additional information would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you for reaching out to the Community Forums! Have a fabulous day!

Katie, AT&T Community Specialist
