If it's under contract, chances are it is NOT unlocked. Your best bet would be to call Apple at 1 800 My Apple to verify this information.4 comments

I'm with FactualFran on this one. If it is under a contract it was probably bought subsidized and it won't be able to be factory unlocked until the contract is over (also make sure it is the right carrier since I have seen verizon iphones not work on At&t even if they are factory unlocked). Call apple at 1-800-MYIPHONE(694-7466) and then talk to a representative. Check with AT&T as well at 1-800-331-0500 to make sure that the phone wasn't declared lost/stolen as it will not work with AT&T and it can't be factory unlocked.
