You have used some terms that make no sense/incorrect.
Negative band or negative blocked, are not terms
Your phone has been blacklisted. I gather you are the original purchaser.
To remove your phone from the blacklist if it was added in error, you need proof of purchase. The store where you bought it should have that information.

The only suggestion I can think of is file an FCC complaint online. It’s free and someone will contact you.

Thank you! I don't know what the FCC is? WOULD YOU HAVE ANY LINK, OR CONTACT EMAIL TO MAKE A CLAIM? THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMPRESSION

If everything you say is correct then you need to contact AT&T so they can investigate it. Call International Customer Service at +1.314.925.6925

@ATTHelpForumsGood morning/afternoon, I'm desperately trying to unlock my iPhone 6s that has been paid off in full for several YEARS now. I keep getting a message that the device is not paid off and that's simply incorrect. The device MAY have been replaced via warranty several years ago and I've read that can sometimes cause the issue however there are absolutely zero reasons for me not to be able to unlock the device as I have fully met all terms required to unlock. Been a loyal AT&T Premier/Business Mobile customer for 20 years now and am struggling to understand how this is such a difficult request to honor. I've done my part, as always, now it's your turn to help a loyal customer out with a VERY simple request.
Thanks so very much and in advance for any and all assistance,
Name, account and device details will be provided once I am contacted by a formal/official AT&T Team Member.
