Questions and Answers

I am curious as to whether or not my phone is locked or not?

I downloaded "Phone Info" in the play store, but Nowhere does it say specifically that my phone is locked or Unlocked. The issue I am having Only is sending & receiving photos / MMS messages (Which are at times Long texts which render themselves as MMS types.

The original carrier was AT&T but they screwed me over, so, with a quick trip to BYOP @ Wally-World (Wal-Mart), they had me up & running on STR8-Talk in minutes, However, I locked myself out of That phone by performing a hard reset & NOT having a G-Mail acct., it will Not allow me back in! That phone was replaced through "Geek-Squad" protection, they sent me a new one, never asked for the other back, so I have 2 now, 1 I'm locked out of & 1 that will Not send MMS's, if Anyone has an answer, Thanks!   Hackie-Sack  OH, the phone is a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

I bought a used boost mobile phone. I need to check if it is locked or not?

It does not have a data plan. I need to check if it is locked or not? I'm looking for a cheap or free 2G or 3G connection to surf the internet with? I have a very little knowledge of 2G and 3G.
