Unlocking will largely depend on then reason why the device was locked in the first place.

1. If you bought it locked (Network locked to one carrier)  then you can either go via your current carrier & distributor ( a small fee will be asked for the unlock code) or visit any local reputable phone repairs shop.
2. If the device will not work with any domestic carriers, then it is most likely blacklisted either because it was reported lost/stolen or it is under a breached contract. You will still have to contact your carrier for assitance with this.
