I can't tell if my phone is unlocked or not?

http://forum.xda-developers.com – Ok, my phone was unlocked and rooted. I did the update for Verizon a while back. Lost root, but i'm not sure if I lost unlock. I'm getting a replacement from VZW and what makes me think that it is still unlocked is a padlock that is nearly locked but not all the way. This is on the black screen with Google above it, and not latter where you can slide it. I did try searching, but I couldn't find something like this. So, if it is unlocked I would follow this, right?: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1392310 and scroll to: Q. I want to send my phone back so I need to flas (HowTos)
