I purchased my iPhone 5s from Tmobile 2 yrs ago - is it unlocked?

I do not have the option of using another sim. My fam & friends are all on the same network.

I am wanting to sell it on eBay, and want to list it as unlocked. Is there a code I can type it the phone to verify? Better yet, since I purchased from Tmo, aren't they all unlocked?

There are sites that let you check. Alternatively you can call either Apple or T-Mobile.

If it's not unlocked you can certainly request an unlock if you've had it for 2 years.

Try popping in a friend's sim card. My SO had a 5S from ATT and I was freaking out over unlocking it to move her to Tmobile. When push came to shove it was already unlocked and just worked when we put the SIM in.
