    take a sim or two of different providers and use it on the phone when u meet the seller and see if they both work fine (make calls send texts)

    you cannot identify it just by looking at the settings, you have to pop in a provider's sim card and if there is reception, then check it with another provider's sim card, and if both shows reception, then it is factory unlocked

    What if the phone is unlocked through other procedure? well, that will definately iderntify all networks...

    I’m talking about factory unlock. Not simply unlock (i.e. ultra snow/ black snow)
    Thanks for your understating…

    I agree. The only way to unlock a 4S is with an unlock sim like gevey if its on the right baseband. Factory 4S wont have that issue. Pop carrier sim in and verify it has signal.
