Well ain’t it a bummer, you just bought a locked iPhone (never blind buy again if you don’t know what you’re doing) and you have no clue on what carrier / network it’s locked to.
This is where some web services like imei.info come in. These services allow you to quickly check on what network / carrier your iPhone is locked, but of course, for a few dollars. If you buy 5 credits it will cost you $13.00 and you’ll be able to check 5 devices.
IMEI.info also provies other FREE useful information like:
