Devices must be listed by model number and by the original carrier.

No carrier-branded device should be listed in the factory unlocked category for that same type of device. //The same rule applies to devices that were sold by / locked to a specific carrier when first purchased.//

For instance, if your device has an AT&T symbol on it, it must be listed in the AT&T section. This rule applies whether or not a device has been SIM / carrier unlocked. If a device has been SIM unlocked by the original carrier, simply note this detail in your listing's title or description to ensure any potential buyers are aware of this.
