Enable Tethering for Phone Bought from eBay

Hey,

I've an HTC8X phone that I bought from eBay which is SIM unlocked.

But apparently it's stil ATT partially locked since when I try to "internet sharing" I get an error saying I need to call ATT support.

 

Since I bought it from eBay I obviously don't have a receipt and since I'm not a ATT customer I don't have a login to talk to the support on the website.

 

Is there a way I can still unlock the device (https://www.att.com/deviceunlock/client/en_US/termsAndCondition)?

Thanks!!

Call AT&T, and ask them what to do. You should have a "recipt" of some form from ebay, even if its just an email recipt.
