Default How to tell if phone is unlocked

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any way to tell if the phone is unlocked other than putting a sim with another provider?

Everything is disabled except network it shows active. What does that mean? is the phone unlocked?

Sim - Disabled
Network - Active ????
Network subset - Disabled
service provider - Disabled
corporate - Disabled
