Is Unlocking possible for pre-paid Moto G6 Play or Samsung J7 from Verizon

I have unlocked pre-paid phones from Verizon in the past. (Like the E4 deal was posted on RFD).
Now looking to find unlock codes for following two phones but no luck.
They say we must use their service for certain time before we can request unlock code from Verizon and I can't find unlock codes from third party web sites.

Anyone has idea on unlocking the above 2 phones ?

Our 4G Phone-in-a-Box phones may only be used with Verizon Prepaid service for 1 year from original activation date or until payments in the amount specified on the back of the Phone-in-a-Box package are added to the Prepaid account. This is to partially offset the subsidy we provide to make our 4G Phone-in-the-Box Prepaid phones more affordable to customers.

Once either of the criteria above is satisfied, you can dial *611 from your Verizon Wireless Prepaid phone or call 888.294.6804 and we will provide you with programming instructions so you can unlock your phone. If the user guide for your phone does not provide instructions to access the programming menu, we can help you with that as well.

Thanks both of you for your reply But I was more interested to know if any third party unlocking service is available.
Because I don't plan to use the phone on Verizon network.
Not too far in the past we were able to get unlock codes for 2-3 dollars.

Check Howardforums but I strongly suspect you're completely SoL when it comes to these prepaid-phone-in-a-box phones. These phones are cheap for a reason. If you're still within your return period I'd just return the phones.
