    That's a very good question, I really have no clue as I always check this through my business.

    However, if you give me the IMEI in private message, I could check that for you, free of charge!

    (Unless someone steps in with an free website).

    For that kind of lock, I would check with the phone company directly.

    I'm not 100% sure. It might. I'm pretty sure that somehow all cell companies use the same database for that list. Apple may or may not have access to it. But I swear I wanna say they do because it seems like I remember reading a few other posts about it here. I just can't be 100% certain.
