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



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.
