How to Find if you iPhone is Factory Unlocked

So, I was browsing through the internet to know if the iPhone 4 I brought is factory Unlocked or not and I thought to myself how many of you guys would be needing to know this.

 

 

The iPhone 4 is the hottest gadget to have. It’s also the most difficult to get. The unlocked model is also more expensive and has a higher resale value when it’s time to upgrade.

Jailbreaking and using an unauthorized unlock is available. But future availability of these unlocks are not guaranteed. You may end up with a carrier-locked model and be stuck without an unlock for a long time.

Before buying an iPhone 4 from unofficial sources such as eBay or classified ads sites, make sure that it is unlocked.  So here is how you can figure out,  if the phone is carrier locked, based on the part number written on the box OR Goto Settings > General > About > MODEL
