How do I request an unlock for an older iPhone 3G through Apple? I bought from someone online and it needs to be unlocked but, ATT won't do it because I don't have an account with them.
Apple does not do this at all.
ONLY the carrier to which it is locked can unlock it. no one else at all. Unlocking is 100% the decision of the carrier.
If the phone is over 2 years old, I've heard sometimes ATT will make exceptions and unlock the phone.
Call them and see what they'll do.
