Default Lock by network

afaik, you can use most phones without a sim inside. You can't use them as a phone, they become the equivalent of a small tablet

If the phone is "locked to a network" that means you can't use other carriers SIM's in them.

if the IEM is "blacklisted" (i.e. the phone was reported stolen), you can't use them on any network, locked or not. (this is a guess)
