I have a iPhone 4 iOS 6.1.3 GSM that I bought off a friend. When I got it I jailbroke it to use it as an iPod before activating/unlocking it. I had to jailbreak it to use it as an iPod because I couldn't pass the activation screen. I had my friend call AT&T to unlock it for me. After about a week I got the instructions on what to do. When I had to do the final restore step. After it got done restoring on iTunes it said "We're sorry we're unable to complete your activation at this time, please contact customer support." It won't let me finish the unlock, is there any way I can unlock it ? Or is it unable to be unlocked because of me jailbreaking it. (I also don't have the origional sim card.)

So you restored the phone (removing the hacktivation from before), and now you're getting an error trying to activate it through iTunes?
Have you tried activating it while connected to Wi-Fi and your SIM in it on the phone itself?
If the error persists, you may just have to wait and try at a later time, or perhaps there's something about the origins or conditions of phone your friend didn't tell you...

Yes I have tried both of those. I read online that if you jailbreak it and then unlock it there might be errors. But I don't know any solution that will work...

Just out of curiosity what is your modem firmware/baseband? If you don't know or can't access your settings f0recast can give you this info. I have a sneaking suspicion you may have 6.15 baseband. If you do this can be fixed and your official unlock activated.
