How can I tell if my phone is unlocked?

You can find out if your iPhone is locked by going to Settings > General > About. If "No SIM restrictions" appear next to Carrier Lock, your iPhone is unlocked. If you would like more information on how to do this with your iPhone, please click here. If you're still unsure, please check with your previous carrier. While this is accurate most of the time, the only true way to verify lock status is to contact your current carrier or attempt to use a sim card from a different carrier.
