    Shouldn't you be asking all that and figuring out if you can unlock it or not before you buy it?
    The seller is supposed to hold your hand? He just cares about getting his money.

    Well, what model phone, version of iOS, and (most importantly) carrier is it on?

    If I were to make a $250-$400 purchase I'd look into every single detail and be able to spit out facts left and right before I actually spend my money.
