    i have been using my iPhone 4s with a verizon provider I would like to switch to T mobile.
    my phone has been unlocked by the provider, I reset it I now get this message on it.

    choosing a carrie will lock this iPhone to that carrier and cannot be changed.

    inland cellular
    straight talk

    A thing about the Verizon 4S variant of iPhone... those are only un-lockable by Verizon for INTERNATIONAL use - outside the USA... so the OP could get the device unlocked by Verizon and could be used on T-Mobile outside the US. But not on T-Mobile in the US.

    Whichever carrier you choose, that is the carrier the device will be locked to.

    from what I gather, it is the name of a specific wireless carrier.
