    OK a few things here.

    First, you should never post your IMEI on a public forum.

    Second, when you say it's 'locked' to AT&T do you mean if you put your SIM in it doesn't work at all or that the phone just shows AT&T in the About under carrier?

    Third, you shouldn't post your question twice in the forum.

    As I've advised other who bought AT&T phones:
    I cannot emphasis this enough. (assuming it was labeled as AT&T locked, if it wasn't, you may want to contact the seller)

    DO NOT PURCHASE SECONDHAND AT&T-LOCKED DEVICES WITH THE INTENT TO UNLOCK OR USE OUTSIDE THE US.

    AT&T as a policy does NOT unlock secondhand/used devices. Even if you were the original owner, they will require 60-days of their service on their device I believe.
    If you were to steam ahead with that specific device, unlocking via a third-party channel ranges from expensive to impossible.

    The fact you're outside the USA doesn't help your problem either.

    I will say the best course of action (from my point of view) is to sell it to someone who can put it to use in the US, and then obtain a different unlocked device or device locked to your carrier of choice.

    Good luck, you'll need it.
