    I have an old iPhone 5 S that still has about 11 months left on the contract. For no good reason, I asked ATT to unlock it and they approved the request with instruction to complete the unlock.

    I bought an IP7 for full price from Apple, understanding that it would be unlocked from the get-go. Other than their word (Att), I don't know if the phones are unlocked or not. Wondering if there is a website that can tell if a phone is unlocked?

    Also, for no good reason at the moment, can I put the sim card from the 7 into my 5S and thus, make the 5S work with the telephone number of the 7?

    Full price from Apple = unlocked.
    So swap sim cards and rock both phones. If the 5S is unlocked now, sell it (if you want) and pay off that contract.

    The only real way to tell if it's unlocked is stick another carriers sim inside.
