Unlock Request Denied - Need Help as no alternative solution provided
I'll try to keep this brief but detailed... bought an iPhone XS Max in full for cash for work when my landlines were down for a brief period. Since I had Apple Care, I exchanged this iPhone due liquid damage. As my work phones were fixed, the need for this iPhone was gone so I turned around and sold it's Apple care replacement. AFTER the sale, which clearly stated it was Apple carrier locked, the buyer messaged me he needs it unlocked. I have the IMEI of the new replacement phone, but this IMEI is not recognized in the database with AT&T since it's a different phone with a different IMEI, and I'm guessing Apple Care is the only entity with this information.
