Unlock problem

i’m having trouble unlicking my iphone. 

My unlock request was denied because i havent had the prepaid account for 6 months yet. Hoewever, i didnt purchase this phone as a prepaid att phone. The phone has been in use with At&T as my son’s phone; then, he upgraded to iphone x and i used it first with h2o service, then with straight talk. Each for short periods of time. Recently, on March 10th, i took a prepaid service with att using a different phone; then, i took out the sim card and put it in this phone. I dont quite understand why this device fits in that category. Is it possible for my phone to still be unlocked? It is already paid for when my son’s phone was upgraded. Thank you for your help.

Hi @Mons2002,

Having an unlocked device is very beneficial for those who travel and desire to use their devices on another network. We definitely want to make sure you receive the support you deserve. Let me guide you in the right direction to get this taken care of!

It is great to hear you have attempted to submit a device unlock request. This is definitely the first step to take when it comes to this process. To ensure we get to the bottom of this, I will be sending a private message to gather additional details. Please be on the lookout for my message.

I hope you have an amazing rest of your day!
