Should a BYOP Be "Manufacturer" or "SIM" Unlocked?

Environment

Answer

Manufacturer unlocked.

Additional Notes

Factory unlocked, or manufacturer unlocked, typically refer to the original condition of the phone. SIM unlocked may mean that a third-party "unlocked" the phone from the original carrier's SIM card.

Use discretion and purchase from a reputable re/seller.
