sorry about it im just new to this stuff...
A "subsidy lock" is a software lock on a GSM phone, restricting its use to the carrier/service provider who originally sold the phone. In the US, it is common for the two major GSM providers to "lock" their phones to their networks. The companies will often issue the "unlock codes" for free with a valid reason, when asked... and there are other companies who provide those codes for a fee.
