@Ccumpton1 Presuming you are talking about a prepaid phone, the requirement is for that specific device to have 6 months of continuous prepaid usage.

@DawnDuncan  Correct prepaid phones need to have 6 months continuous service before eligible for unlock.

@DawnDuncan AT&T sells prepaid phones at a discount and the 6 month prepaid service is a way to recover the price of the phone.
