  4. No, I you'll need to contact your carrier and have them unlock it (for free) but that only works if your carrier uses GSM (In the US, that means AT&T, T Mobile, Straight Talk, and a handful of other providers). You won't be able to get your iPhone unlocked if it's using CDMA instead of GSM (like Verizon and Sprint as well as several others).
