I need to unlock...

I need to unlock the phone that I bought in America as I am back in australia

Technician's Assistant: When were you last able to use your phone?

On the 10th January in LA

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried a Factory Reset? The Phone Expert can walk you through this to ensure you don't lose your photos, contacts and other data.

I have put a Australian SIM card in and I cannot use the phone

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Phone Expert to know before I connect you?

Can I unlock the phone even though I wasn’t with them for 90 days

Samsung J727T
It is locked to metro pcs

After 90 days, you can contact MetroPCS to get the phone unlocked for free:

https://www.metropcs.com/terms-conditions/phone-unlock-policy.html

Or you can take it to a local phone unlocker and get it unlocked using their equipment before your MetroPCS contract expires.
