Blush How do i tell if my N1 is unlocked

Hey guys, I'm trying to sell my Nexus One on eBay, and I keep getting asked if it's unlocked. I bought it when it first came out directly from Google, so how do I tell if it's unlocked?

Also, wtf does "unlocked" mean?

Unlocked means that it will work with any compatible carrier. Not locked to one specific carrier.

They are referring to a carrier lock where the phone would require a code to use a sim from a different carrier than the one you bought it through. Since you bought the N1 from Google, it is unlocked. Be sure to specify which one you have ... T-mobile and AT&T have different 3G bands and you can't use one on the other's network for 3G data.
