    You are asking 2 different questions.

    1. As for it being unlocked. If phone was unlocked than they should give u an unlocked replacement. If it's locked than u get a locked replacement.

    2. Hit or miss if u get the "new A1428" model that has updated 1700/2100 baseband enabled. There are no guarantees unless u originally purchased ur phone with the 1700/2100 baseband enabled after April 12 2013.
