Access Bootloader from Recovery, Unlocking Bootloader B19

I had purchased the Axon 7 in November and could access the LOCKED Bootloader from the Android Recovery menu and from there use "fastboot" to unlock or lock the device.  I requested an Advanced exchange for my device and the new device isn't able to do so.  From the Android Recovery menu, pressing Reboot to bootloader, only reboots the OS instead.  Is there a way of unlocking the newer phones and how?  Why is it so difficult to find current information on this device for the situation?  I have spent 14 hours installing other versions of Android and following multiple guides to unlocking to finally find out that the option was removed and no one told me about it when I requested a new device.  So frustrating.
