    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

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

    Have u plugged it into iTunes? It'll pop up and say congratulations your iPhone is unlocked.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    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.
