Re: How to tell if my phone is locked or not by the carrier

Hi mate,

Sorry what carrier are you with? You will have to ask them if you are locked to them or not. If you are saying that they have a whole bunch of their apps installed on the phone, my guess is that is locked to them. As I've said though, would pay to check with them, and also when you ask to get it unlocked, try another carrier's SIM card with them and ask about things like if the tethering has been unlocked etc, as carriers can sometimes lock this too, unbeknown to the user.
