The easiest way to purchase an unlocked phone is to buy it from a reliable source. Many phones on the market are locked to a specific carrier, like sprint which you can’t unlock. The major GSM carriers in the US, which is T-Mobile & AT&T can be unlocked for a cost. If you can find a device from Verizon than you’re golden because all of these are unlocked phones. The best way to make sure the phone is unlocked is to try a sim card from a different carrier. If you can make a call using the different sim card that means the phone is unlocked.
Another factor to consider if you buy a phone is to make sure it’s paid off. If you plan on using the device in the US and the original owner never paid it off than it will become blacklisted. This is a different scenario when looking for unlocked phones as many unscrupulous sellers will never tell you it’s not paid off. It takes about ninety days for the carrier to blacklist the phone since the last payment received.
