Hi and Welcome to the Community!
See this FAQ for helpful information:
The screen you are looking at is not the screen that will tell you if it's locked or unlocked.

i called verizon and they refuse to help me unlock my phone. I know what the mep number is as i got it from the OS Engineering Screen. Does anyone know of free software I can get to just unlock the **bleep** thing myself.

You can also do some further research into unlocking services:
Outside of your carrier, "free" will be hard to come by...these folks have to earn a living as well.

Hi and Welcome to the Community (and thank you for your Service!)!
Probably not, but only they (VZW) can answer the question. Typically, some carriers will provide the code to existing customers in good standing for some period of time. Outside of that, it becomes pretty much discretionary. But, again, only they can answer the question for sure...
