How to unlock a go-phone?

How do I unlock a Gophone that I have only used as a back-up phone when my main cell phone is not functioning properly.  That is, the go phone doesn't have its own number and AT&T won't help me without a phone number associated with it.  What do i do?  I need to use this phone when I travel to Africa this summer.

OK, what type/make/ of Gophone you have??

 Is that the one you brought in Walmart with a Gophone package??
Don't you know most Gophone (3G,4G LTE) will not work in Africa even you get it unlocked because of the operating frequency bands are different ??

I would also like to add that you can view all of the requirements to unlock your AT&T device right on at their unlock website.  I unlocked my Nokia Lumia while I was on GoPhone service through this link:

AT&T GoPhone is changing its name to AT&T PREPAID. New name - same great service, network and value!
