Phone unlocked or not?


I read that any phone in Canada sold in last two years has to be unlocked by law. Can anyone verify that this is the case. Tried to use self serve but returned unlock_not_sent code.

And any phone sold prior to then has to be unlocked by the original carrier upon request by the phone owner.

As of December 2017 that is the case. Do you think that your phone is locked or something?

Ok thanks guys. Since I got the phone in July 2018 I'm going to assume it is indeed unlocked.
