That's not how it works. AT&T assures themself that they will get paid by not unlocking your phone until it is completely paid off, and any balance on the account as well.

You must pay off your phone before it can be unlocked. Now that you have cancelled service, your final bill must be settled too. Whatever you owe on the phone will be on the final bill. Depending on your billing cycle, you may not get the final bill for weeks. The phone won’t be eligible to be unlocked until a week or two after the final bill is paid.
