You need to be a Tmobile customer to be eligible for an unlock code.

My advice is to get your money back from this “someone”. The phone will only be usable on T-Mobile (US) and may be on the verge of being blacklisted. There are only three reasons why someone would not unlock this phone 1) ignorance or 2) not eligible 3) fraud.  In the first case, the original owner can cure the problem. In the second, only the original owner can fix it by fulfilling the conditions for unlocking. In the third, there’s little or nothing that can be done.

Currently, it seems clear, at least according to Swappa.  As mentioned, T-Mobile only SIM unlocks devices for customers, their accounts, and devices that meet the requirements of the SIM Unlock Policy.

You could always try an online SIM unlocking service or your local cellphone repair shop to see if the s22 can be SIM unlocked for a fee.

You can't purchase a SIM unlock from T-Mobile.  They do not offer that service.  SIM unlocks are for customers only whose device and account meets all of the SIM Unlock Policy requirements.

It means, the device does not meet the SIM Unlock Policy requirements.  Which considtion(s) it doesn't meet, I don't know.  But T-Mobile will not SIM unlock it.

To summarize, the usage requirements for being a Tmobile customer is basically the cost of the unlock code.

Since your not a customer you don't meet the requirements.
