A locked phone is one that has been programmed to only work with a
specific carrier. If the carrier is subsidizing the price of the phone
by selling it to you below cost or giving it for free they don't want
you to leave and use the phone they just paid for on another network.
As long as you stay with that carrier it makes no difference. An
unlocked phone will work on any compatible network. To unlock a locked
phone you need either some hardware or code - it varies by make and
model. Searching google for "unlock v300" for example, will find you
options for unlocking a Motorola v300.

HI locked phone is nothing but the phone is locked to any particular network sim due to this you can't use it with any GSM sim ....To fix this you have to unlock your phone there are many ways to unlock phone they are using cable ,software ,codes and so on among them code is the best solution .You can purchase code from sites like Unlock-Free.com they will generate unlock code for some older mobile models at free of cost .Else if you want to unlock some other new model phone then visit sites like MobileUnlockSolutions.com they are providing unlock code for all mobile models at reliable cost ....
