  • It means that although it is a phone that just AT&T provides service for,,,it now can be used for any other service provider. Such as the i-Phones. If someone unlocks the phone although AT&T is the ones who provide service and the only ones with the contract....Verizon as well as T-Mobile can provide service for you.

  • I believe it means you can use it on any network. I.E. Sprint, Verizon, T-mobile. You just have to take it to the store, and have it set up to use it on that network.
