    there are different id's; IMEI, UDID, Serial number

    But there should only be 1 IMEI

    Ok that would mean that the box is not the original box that came with the phone, if they are both different

    that might be common if you are not living in US

    your motherboard or something else would be replaced in order for the iphone to be unlocked for non-US countries' SIM cards

    Well, that's a load of ….

    Unlocks are through an Apple database, it is controlled by IMEI number.
    Apple can lock or unlock any iPhone, has nothing to do with hardware.

    In order to unlock an iphone you need to replace the Motherboard?
