iPhone 6 Device Unlock Error - AT&T says IMEI number doesn't match a compatible device

iPhone 6 Device Unlock Error - AT&T says IMEI number doesn't match a compatible device

I can't unlock my  2 iPhone 6 devises  because AT&T claim the IMEI number dosn't match a compatible device. This is the error message that I have been getting 3 times in a row:

 

"Your unlock request was denied because the IMEI number doesn’t match a device that’s compatible with the AT&T network.

Check the IMEI number by dialing *#06#, or check the device settings, and then submit a new request."

 

both iPhone devices  have been replace by the insurance   IMEI number and it is correct on both The devices,  gives me the same correct number either when I look it up through devices  settings or when I dial *#06#.  This iPhone - purchased through AT&T  

 

I really need to unlock those  phones. Customer service can't or won't help. Why can't this issue not be fixed by a simple phone call?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: iPhone 6 Device Unlock Error - AT&T says IMEI number doesn't match a compatible device

Hi @ATTCares,  

 

I am also getting an error while unlocking iPhone 8 device. I have paid off full device installment plan(PostPaid). I am current ATT Customer.   Please resolve the issue asap.   

 

Error: Looks like the IMEI number you entered doesn’t match an AT&T device. Try entering it again. Dial  *#06#  on your mobile phone to make sure you have the right IMEI. 

 

I have sent Private Message to @ATTCares but no response.

 

I have opened a case/ticket with ATT but still no response back from ATT.

 

Thanks
