    Is my phone unlocked

    I am a little embarrassed, but I am not sure if I unlocked this S1 or my first one....Is there a way to determine if it is unlocked....on my device?

    Thank you in advance!

    I just tried a bunch of different variations with my friends unlocked tour. Compared his to mine and the settings. The only things that I can see different or this. If you go to options > advanced options > Sim card and you type in the phrase mep2 the code activation screen does not pop up on his tour so i am assuming that is the only way of knowing. If the activation screen doesn't pop up then it must be unlocked already? Also on this screen it shows his phone number where it does not on mine.

    Thank you! Nothing did pop up with the mep2 command....so I believe that it is unlocked. Thank you again.

    If you go to Options > Advanced > SIM card. Then type mepd (it wont show up on the screen), a new screen with more info should appear. If it is unlocked, Network should say it's disabled to not active or something to that effect. If it is locked, it will say the network is active or enabled.

    The key combo might be different on a touch screen device, but once you get to that screen, you can see for yourself.

    Yep thats the way to do it, and yes it does work on the Storm series as well.
    +1 Rep for Sunkast on that one.

    When it shows Disabled and Inactive, it means that the phone is unlocked and that you should be able to use another carriers sim card to use on their network.

    Thank you in advance!

    Whats your mobile manufacturer and model ? Its just simple to know your phone is unlocked or not ? Just insert another network sim card in your phone. if it asks for unlock password, you need to unlcok it by using unlock code . You can get it from any of the online vendors like Theunlockarena.com to unlock it . OR If your phone not asks for any code and accept new sim card, you can found that your device is properly unlocked .

    Cheers !!!!!
