You’ll need to talk with the carrier to see if the phone is still under contract if it is you’ll need to pay off the remainder to get it legally unlocked. If it’s not the carrier should be able to unlock it. Even still it maybe iCloud locked as well. You may want to stop the payment you gave the seller if you can. Often times this is a ploy to get money for a stolen phone.
