    Hello,
    I want to sell my iPhone 5S on eBay. I can get a lot more money if it is factory unlocked and I am pretty sure it is, but I want to confirm. I bought the phone from Verizon a while back and all phones sold on Verizon (as of the past few years) are factory unlocked. I then brought the phone over to AT&T and have been using it there for the past few months. To check if it was unlocked, I brought it to a T-Mobile store and had them put a SIM card in it, and sure enough, it hooked right on to T-Mobile's network. All signs point to it being unlocked..can I write that it is factory unlocked in the eBay listing? I don't want someone to buy it and have some reason as to why it isn't unlocked. It is right?

    Thanks.

    If you want confirmation, make a Genius Bar appt and have Apple tell you.

    (It sounds unlocked to me. Also, it should be if it was originally a Verizon 5s.)

    It is unlocked for GSM use.
    But to be correct its not a Factory unlocked iphone. You can list it as a verizon Iphone 5S and if it has a clean ESN that's even better cause it can be used on Verizon and any GSM carrier in the world.
