How can I check if my Android phone is unlocked without a SIM card to check against?

I have a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime that was supposed to be unlocked when I bought it, but I am now skeptical to that fact. I have tried Method 2 on the page, which directed me to the web browser IMEI checker. However it only showed warranty information and nothing about whether the phone was unlocked or not.

  • Do not forget to click "SIMLOCK & WARRANTY" button on the http://www.imei.info/ web site to check the lock. The lock status is next to "SIM lock".
  • Install and run this application. It is not guaranteed to display the correct result.
  • Run this application and see if it offers to unlock your phone. If it does, then your phone is locked.

I can't find the Simlock and Warranty option on IMEI.info page?

I want to check if my phone is unlocked, I follow the steps provided in this guide. I got to the step 5 but there is no SIMLOCK and Warranty option on IMEI.info page when I type in my IMEI number. I don't know whether they removed it or I am just too blind to find it. I tried with search option and everything I could think of but still no results. Article says that I click on the SIM Lock and Warranty option, but it isn't there. I have tried: Repeating Steps 1 - 4 multiple times, on different browsers both on PC and my Android smartphone. I think it was caused by: Maybe they removed it as an option from their website!
