If the AT&T account is in good standing/& or the phone is paid for in-full,perhaps you can get an unlock code.

If I were you,I'd do a little legwork before completing the transaction, including getting the serial number of the device & contacting AT&T regarding unlocking the device.

Otherwise,you risk buying a phone that won't work.

Just GOOGLE "AT&T UNLOCKING POLICY" & click on the 1st &/or 2nd link for more detailed information.

Other option, get your friend to reduce price by 30 bucks and get it unlocked via cellunlocker.net

Also review this from Cellunlocker.net - #1 Unlock Codes for Network Cell Phone Unlocking

Now I'm not a total expert on unlocking devices, but as KOLIO stated, do your research, talk with your provider

As for talk about unlocking here, lets be cool and not try to circumvent any legality for it.
I'm not saying we already are, just posting the disclaimer
