1. Enter *#06# on your phone’s dial pad. Some carriers don’t allow you to access (Verizon)
2. Check in the settings:
• Android: Go to Settings > About device > Status
• iPhone: Go to Settings > General > About
An unlocked cell phone isn't tied to a specific carrier's network and works with more than one service provider. It's also likely paid off.
How to unlock a phone
You'll likely need to call your current carrier and ask for a “network unlock” to have your phone unlocked. (Big Wireless always makes things harder than they need to be). Most often a phone call, a visit to their webpage or one of their retail stores is required to start the unlocking process.
When can I unlock my phone?
For most providers, fully paid-off phones can be unlocked within a year. If you're still making phone payments, your device will stay locked to your current carrier. Once it's paid off though, you can contact your provider to unlock it for you.
