Thanks for reaching out to us Wil0015. I'd be happy to answer this for you. All of our 4G LTE devices are unlocked and don't require any additional steps.

So if I have an Apple Iphone 7 - that is already unlocked as well? My contract was paid off a couple months ago and I was wondering the same thing. Please advise. thanks.

ahamilton1, let me help clarify a few things related to unlocked devices. The iPhone 7 is a 4G LTE device. Our Post Paid 4G devices are locked before activation. Once the phone has been activated on the VZW network, it is unlocked. Based on what you've shared, your phone has been active for quite a while now. As a result, the device is unlocked.

 

I hope this helped clarify things. Were you thinking about selling your old device, when you purchased a new one from VZW? Or was there another reason you needed to check on its locked/unlocked status?
