Hello Gens2Rasta,
There is no way right now to unlock the bootloader on a phone with the "Bootloader unlock allowed: No" status right now. My only advise would be that you should contact your carrier and ask them if it's possible for them to change the status of your phone so that you can unlock the bootloader.

Have a great weekend,
