    Not sure if the model number has anything to do with it it says md241c
    I bought it on kijiji it has no sim card I am in Canada and I'd like to know what sim card to buy and need to know how to tell if it's locked to a certain carrier

    call an apple store, they can run your serial number and check to see if its an authorized unlocked phone.

    You cant tell just by the model number.
    To be 100% you will have to test other sims with it.

    Settings/General/About and "Carrier". That will tell you which carrier it is on.

    To know if it is unlocked, either try a different SIM or called Apple to run your serial to find out.
