An unlocked phone means the device which is not locked to a specific carrier. When you buy a phone on a payment plan or a contract, it is locked to the carrier to prevent you from skipping out on the bill and selling the phone. If you tried to activate this device on another carrier, it wouldn’t work then. You can’t install SIM cards from competing networks and expect instant connectivity. Even if your phone has equipment for other networks and you have made all payments, it usually remains blocked by the operator until a formal request is made and certain conditions are met.
