What is a Carrier Variant Phone?

Environment

Answer

Most carriers usually will require a contract, and the phones can only be unlocked after the contact has been fulfilled or the contract period ends. North American factory unlocked phones are not locked to a provider, this allows the owner  to switch providers by simply changing the SIM card in the phone whenever they choose.
