I tried like 3 times already to get an unlock code for an LG V35 but every time it says that i did not confirm the unlock request, 3 times already i submitted a new request and 3 times i confirmed the unlock request and i always get the same answer. Please help me.

This isn't how you get action from AT&T. If you are unable to successfully unlock your phone after meeting the requirements and submitting a request, file a complaint with the FCC. You will get contact from someone who can help solve your issue, and if there are enough complaints, the FCC might be able to pressure AT&T into finding a permanent fix.

I’ve submitted three separate requests to unlock my girlfriend’s iPhone 6. I’ve clicked the confirm link that gets emailed to me and It always says that my request is in progress—but then after two days it says the request was cancelled because I never confirmed it... I went into a corporate AT&T store and they were unable to help me either. Any advice as to how to get it unlocked?
Its also worth noting that the phone is completely paid off and hasn’t been used in months.

When I fill out the form to unlock and then confirm my email ( tried it twice), a day later I get a message saying I was denied for not confirming my email.
It's possible it could be unlocked already. It was bought at full retail price.
If by some chance it's not, I need it to be. Can a At@t rep please help?

I have tried unlocking my Samsung s7 but I received an email saying it was cancelled because I didn’t confirm it with the link. I did confirm it with the link. I am trying again hopefully this doesn’t happen. I meet all the requirements to unlock a phone.

We're sorry to hear that you are having trouble receiving a confirmation email for your device unlock request. Please know that AT&T is aware of the glitch, and is working diligently to restore the unlock request service option quickly as possible. We appreciate your patience at this time, and do apologize for the inconvenience.

@MicCheck In this case, coming to this forum does seem to have helped. I don't think running to the FCC or BBB is the solution in all cases.
AT&T being aware of the glitch doesn't help anyone unlock their phone. The need to get escalated for that. Unless they file a FCC or BBB complaint, they will just have to wait.
The FCC or BBB isn't the solution in all cases, but when AT&T isn't unlocking phones as it agreed to, making the FCC aware is important.
