    There are some sort of reports you can buy on your iPhone that will tell you the locking policy it is following. I can't remember what they are called. If anyone knows, please let me know, thanks!

    Don't know about reports, but your device would be following the locking policy of the original carrier or the carrier chosen during setup.

    For instance, my son has a Sprint iPhone 5 (a recent replacemnt for a Sprint 5 with a bad battery). I was given the opportunity to choose the carrier. I chose Verizon. So, now this formerly Sprint iPhone follows Verizon's locking policy.

    Since Verizon's policy is to unlock all LTE capable devices this fully unlocked the phone. So, now my son is using it on our carrier T-Mobile.

    Are you trying to find out what carrier the device is locked to? Because you aren't the original owner?

    Sometimes Apple screws up when they send you warranty replacements.

    I found it on ebay, it is a GSX report.
