~furious: I canceled my husband's cellphone ******* because he had it since July **** and never used it, at a cost to us of $** a month. Since we had a contract, they charged us $*** to cancel and we paid that on our March bill. *We will be traveling and will be in different locations at certain times. We are seniors.**This week we submitted a request to have the cell phone unlocked so we could purchase a phone card from another carrier. I submitted two requests and called and agent helped me since I did not receive the email link.*Finally I received an email stating:*Unfortunately, your unlock request was denied because: **You have not completed all the payments for your device according to your AT&T Next service agreement.**You can submit a new request once you complete all your device payments.**I called and an agent checked and saw where we had paid $*** to cancel the contract in Feb.*******. She did some paperwork and said we still have to submit another *th request and cannot do so until
