Interesting reading the responses to this question. I used to work for verizon wireless tech support and would get this question probably several times a day. If the screen on the phone says "locked" then you would to "unlock" the phone to use it. depending on the manufactuer you usually press the right soft key (looks like the minus sign -) then insert the last four of the phone number some won't accept that and you then start with 0000 or 1234. If it won't unlock something is going on with the phone internally and will probably need to be repalced. Now unlocking could refer to the indentifying serial number for the phone itself which is located on the back of the phone after you remove the battery usually referred to as a MEID # if it's locked it's done because the phone was suspended for a reason usually stolen or a non paying customer and usually a useless phone. Phones are not interchangable from carrier to carrier due to the software and programming, some comapnies use sim cards and some don't. Not sure this answer helps but cell phones are complicated little things, best thing to do is call your provider.
