you CAN find out the method used to unlock. Install BSD subsystem and ssh. Then ssh into ure phone and type "minicom -s". Then set the device to "/dev/tty.baseband". Quit minicom. Again, type only "minicom". Now, type AT+XSIMSTATE=1. If the first digit after "PN" is not 5 (Should mostly be 4), then you're good to go and go ahead and virginize. 5 signifies IPSF unlocks. Anything other than that is anySim or iUnlock with which you can use the virginize method. Hope this helps!! Go check out http://www.modmyi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12047 as well.
