I Need Second Hand Phone/Used Phone Help
Hello, I bought an iPhone from a friend a few months ago. It is an iPhone 7 and I was questioning the carrier and if it is locked or unlocked. He said it is locked to AT&T. I no longer talk to this person and I have no access to unlocking this iPhone. I used the unlock portal and sent a request but it was denied because there is a unpaid bill. My question is, how can I unlock the phone? I do not know if there is a sim card in the phone or not. There is a number in the phone but it is not mine and im not sure if I can use this number to pay the phone bill. I went to the AT&T account log in and its asking for an account number or a phone number. I don't want to interfere with the other person’s account by using the number thats in the phone, unless I have to. Is there a way I can make an account and pay the bill? Or is this phone always going to be carrier locked to AT&T? If somebody needs the IMEI #, I will be happy to give that information.
