Turn it over. If the model number is A1428, then it is an AT&T or T-Mobile phone. If it says A1429 then it is a Verizon or Sprint one

IMEI or MEID is available on lock screen. IMEI is for A1428. Enter the IMEI or MEID in the carrier website to determine the carrier

Actually, this page does not really tell you which models assigned to which carriers. You will basically need to do some googling if you want to find this info since after each new iPhone release there are plenty of publications on cNet and other tech websites that would point which models are sold by which networks. I bet if you even simply google your model, you will get a result with the carrier who was selling that model.

@andy888 I didn't say it was. I simply said it was a comprehensive list of all iPhones and model numbers from Apple.

Actually if you have an iphone go to settings/general/about it gives you the network you are on and the model and serial number of your phone.

Actually, in most cases, it is impossible to tell which carrier the iPhone is or was used on by simply looking at the model number. Though in some cases it might work. There is actually an IMEI check which can show what is known as the "Initial Activation Policy" and this would be the original carrier of the device. Notice however that the same device can be used on another carrier later.

imei.info will tell you the carrier it was sold to.

But in the US if the model has 2 available (GSM and GSM+CDMA), GSM only are sold to Tmobile/AT&T, and Verizon and Sprint get the other model.

To find what carrier network it's locked your iPhone, Verizon, T-Mobile or AT&T, you can do this using iPhone IMEI Checker service. You need to find your IMEI number from your Cell Phone, and go here iPhone IMEI Carrier Checker to find the full informations for your device.

Have you tried the iphonedata.info? I heard they are free.

by

Yes, they are free but only can tell you what model is your iPhone. If you like to check SImLock, Carrier Info or iCloud Status then will need to pay on them.
