"if it says not allowed or no then you will need to pay to have the boot loader unlocked.", is there anyway around this part? And why would I have to pay for it?

In the service menu, does it say
Rooting status
Bootloader unlock allowed: no

Because if this is the case, you fall into the same category as I. So you will have to scour the xda for stock based ROMs that you can flash.
