Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.3, 8.2, and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.3, 8.2, or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

I bought an used iPhone 4, which I believe was originally bought more than 2 years ago.

I don't have any information regarding the original owner - mobile number, name, nothing.

I cannot utilize the web chat to request an unlock because I do not have an AT&T account (it is necessary to be a customer to create one) and the rep I spoke to on the phone asked for the original owner's information, which I did not have, and so he couldn't unlock it.

Is there any way around this?
