ATT can only unlock phones locked to ATT.


you will have to request unlock from your previous carrier.

This is a public forum. NEVER post personal information and NEVER, EVER post IMEI numbers on the internet.

Where are you getting the IMEI not recognized. While trying to activate a phone? You may need to contact AT&T and let them know you are using a foreign phone.
