I have bought an iPhone 7 plus A1784 (T-mobile). I asked the seller to unlock the phone from T-mobile, because I am from Ukraine and I need factory unlocked phone. The seller provided me with this article - https://www.t-mobile.com/company/company-info/sim-unlock-policy/unlock-your-mobile-wireless-device.html and told such thing as: "Based on the article I sent you, all GSM phones are unlocked".
I just want to make sure that I will be able to use this iPhone with other carriers. Also the seller wrote me this: "I’m not sure about unlocking. I have however used T-Mobile phone with SIM cards internationally in the past." So the phone is really unlocked?
Thank you in advance for your answers.
Have a nice day.
It is locked. He is trying to pull a fast one on you.
Ask him for the IMEI and keep a record of the conversation in case he tries and change devices on you.
Use this tool to make sure it's clear of no payment or payment plan.
