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.

Yeah ok.
In order to unlock an iphone you need to replace the Motherboard?
Where do people come up with stuff like that....
