    If I’m understanding your question correctly, the only way you can unlock a phone is with the proper credentials.

    How does an iPhone get locked to a server? I have never heard of this.

    If you are in the possession of iPhones and other devices that were in the Lost and Found section of whatever place, the rightful owner may come and find it.
    If this hasn’t happened for a long time now, you may feel the ownership has carried over to the founder.
    While this may true for many objects and items, it’s never the case for iPhones as they (most of them anyway) are locked by iCloud.

    Only the person who knows the credentials will be able to use the device in any capacity.

    iCloud lock would have made no sense if it was possible for other people to gain access to locked devices.

    Therefore you must accept that you’re holding a very expensive paperweight.

    Credentials include the owner’s username, password, passcode, as well as the correct answers to the security questions that he/she set up their devices. If you don’t know those, then, as @Tartarus said, you have a very expensive paperweight.

    I say you return the device to wherever you acquired it as we will not assist in any immoral / unethical / illegal activity.

    OK, what if a phone is locked to a particular network, for instance, it works with only At&t Sims, how do I unlock it to work for any type of SIM???

    The phone / account owner of the AT&T account will need to call in to have the device unlocked.

    Either way, you're still going to need information from the device and / or account to unlock it.

    I would check with both of them to learn how. Again, you’re going to need the proper credentials.

    Verizon devices are already unlocked. The device, however, may or may not have the bands you need to run it with your desired network provider.

    Note that the network lock doesn't have anything to do with the iCloud lock.

    Yep. You can switch networks all you want, but if you cannot provide the username and passcode associated with the iCloud account the phone is tied to then you will not be able to use the device. Period.

    I told you nobody else than the owner could disable iCloud lock.
    You’re out of luck.
    Whether the device is working or not doesn’t change the fact that you will not be able to use it.
