As it's been discussed in this thread, the update was released a while back and it's available to all customers. Unfortunately, after everything you've done there is only one other explanation that I can think of. Something might be corrupted in your phone's software and a factory reset may be needed to find that out or a hardware issue of some kind is causing this.

AT&T hasn't released the update and they probably no longer will since the phone is soo old.  If you wanted to do it on your own (AT YOUR OWN RISK), take a look at this:

I've done it with my phone and it's super easy, but if something screws up you will probably be out a phone...

I've done a lot of factory resets on this phone. It's July 2014, so I have just come to accept that I will never get the update on this phone.
