You can tell whether your Iphone is locked or Unlocked by opening up the cellular settings.

To see if your Iphone is unlocked and can be used on other carriers, open settings,
Tap on Mobile Data,look for an option called Mobile Data Network or Cellular Data Network.

If you see an option for Mobile Data Network then your Iphone is unlocked and can be used on other networks.

If you bought the Iphone outright from an apple store then the Iphone will be unlocked without a doubt.

If you signed a mobile contract then the Iphone is likely locked until the contract runs out.

Sorry for the late response, but I wanted to share some insights with you and others who might have the same question. Checking if your iPhone is unlocked to any carrier is crucial, especially if you're thinking of switching carriers or traveling abroad. One way to check is by inserting a SIM card from a different carrier and seeing if you get a signal and can make calls. If it works smoothly, congrats! Your iPhone is unlocked. If not, don't worry – there are ways to unlock it. I remember dealing with a locked iPhone, and let me tell you, it was a real headache! But fortunately, I came across a helpful post about the iPhone locked to owner that guided me through the process of unlocking it.
