    You only need to unlock a phone if you are trying to switch providers. You are just switching bands which doesn't require doing more than just getting off the plane and turning it on.

    Did you get it from a provider, or did you just get it off eBay or from retailer?

    It may be locked, but to tell if it's locked, you'll have to put another provider's SIM in it. If it says it won't accept it, then you know it's locked.

    I may be able to unlock it, but I will need the IMEI # to know for sure.
