How to tell if my phone is unlocked for any carrier WITHOUT using another carrier sim

Wednesday 21st of November 2012 /
Ok I am new to the HTC Vivid and android but have plenty of computer experience. I searched but could not find an answer to a question of How to tell if my phone is unlocked for any carrier WITHOUT using another carrier sim card to test with? Is there a cryptic message or number in one of the boot screens that will tell me, or am I going to have to find another carrier sim other then mine to test with?

Is there a way to check on the android phone? Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.

How to tell if G1/Dream is telco-locked?

Sunday 01st of March 2009 /
Hi,Over in Singapore, a local telco Singtel just launched the Dream a few days ago and I picked one up when I was there over the weekend. I brought it back to Malaysia (a neighbouring country just north of Singapore) and popped my SIM card into the unit. I can connect to my telco and make normal phone calls and text messages, but the phone does not seem to be able to detect my data connections (3G / GPRS). Wi-Fi connections are fine but that's rather limiting.What I wanted to ask is, is this a symptom of the phone being telco-locked? I kinda doubt that 'cos if it was locked I shouldn't be able to connect to any external telcos bar Singtel. I do have a valid 3G subscription on my current SIM card which I can verify using my older phones. The Dream itself doesn't seem to have any 3G setup screens, from what I can see.The top bar of the Home screen indicates that signal strength is maxed out. But I know that when I used my friend's Singtel SIM card, I could see a 3G connected status icon next to the signal strength icon. I don't see that when I switch to my local telco's SIM card.Anyb

How do I determine if my phone is SIM-locked to AT&T?

Saturday 12th of April 2014 /
Hi, I recently bought a Moto X (love it!) off eBay. The seller isn't responding to my question so I thought there must be some way of knowing this by poking around the 'About Phone' details, but no luck. Simple question: how do I tell if my phone is SIM-locked to AT&T? I don't have another provider's SIM to put into it and tell, so that method is unfortunately ruled out. (In that case, I'm assuming the phone will just give me an error message and say something to the effect that the SIM I've put in isn't supported?). Thanks in advance for all your help!
