How to Know if Your iPhone is Unlocked

Find out if your iPhone is unlocked… before going on your next vacation!

Time to go on a vacation? You are traveling abroad and you might want to buy another SIM card/network plan. And of course, the next question is: Is my iPhone unlocked? Can I use my iPhone with any carrier? At Popsy, we’re here to help 🙂

Do you already know the difference between a locked and unlocked iPhone? If not, then I think you know where to click next 🙂

Here are the easiest and quickest ways to check if your iPhone is unlocked.

1/ Contact your carrier

The easiest way to find out if your iPhone is unlocked is to contact your carrier!


This is a good approach because if you have paid off your phone, the carrier can unlock your iPhone for you.

Here are the contact numbers of your carriers:

  • Verizon: 1-800-922-0204
  • AT&T: 1-800-331-0500
  • T-Mobile: 1(800)453-1304

2/ Where did you buy your iPhone?

If you bought your iPhone from the Apple store, we can guarantee you that your iPhone is unlocked. But if you bought your iPhone as part of a contract from any carrier, then your iPhone is locked! The only way for you to unlock it is to pay off your contract. You can always give them a call to check with your carrier

3/ Check in your iPhone settings

There is a simple way to check if your iPhone is unlocked by going into your iPhone settings. This is relatively simple: go to “Settings,” then “Cellular,” and then “Cellular Data Options.” The selections will slightly vary depending on what carrier you bought your iPhone from, but if anywhere along the way you see an option called “Cellular Data Network,” then we can confirm you that your iPhone is unlocked! Yay!
