Unlocked or Locked, the model # doesn't matter.
I have bought three iphone 4S recently.
1) an AT&T upgraded, discount ($199) contract one (locked for sure)
2) and off contract Device only one (unlocked, still unlocked after upgrade to 5.01, and i think it will be always unlocked for sure),
Both are MC918LL/a.
3) The office unlocked one I just ordered from Apple Store online is MD234LL/a.
So I think the model # really does NOT matter!!! As soon as it is not locked in apple system.

For MD models, they are flagged as unlocked by default in Apple's database. For MC(ATT) models, they are flagged as locked by default in Apple's database but changed to unlocked if it is purchased as "device only" from Apple.

This whole unlocked from beginning thing is weird. Why would apple advertise an unlocked version in november when some user started with unlocked iphones.

MD241LL/A 32GB Black
MD244LL/A 32GB White
MD2257LL/A 64GB Black
MD260LL/A 64GB White
AT&T (Unlocked if purchased "device only" from Apple store)
