    A friend of mine has loaned me a 4S to use while traveling in Europe. I just checked the IMEI on iphoneimei.info and the following screen comes up. Am I right that it's still locked even though a carrier is not listed? The phone is definitely not under contract. Can I get AT&T to unlock the phone or does my friend have to make the request?

    I would get your friend to contact AT&T and have the unlock processed since he's a customer.

    Would it not have been easier to ask you friend if it was unlocked?

    He thought it was unlocked, but not sure. He's a tech consultant and has a ton of phones. In fact, he even sent me two HTC phones just in case.

    Just give him the IMEI. He can go to ATT web site. As best I remember he will enter the IMEI, his last four numbers of account holders SS and email address. It takes about 48 hours.
