US bought iPhone, password lost, phone locked, use in Asia.

We have an iPhone and the password was lost. So the phone is locked. It was purchased in the USA and desire to ship it to Cambodia or Vietnam.

What does the locked means for them in one of those places and anything about a 5c that will be an issue?

You need to get Apple to reset the password or use Apple's "lost password " facility with iTunes

If the phone has an Apple account icloud , the phone owner must clear the account, apple will have all the information about you.

Another meaning of lock for an iphone is when that iPhone is locked to a specific carrier like Verizon,  AT&T, Sprint, ... in the U.S  and in other countries you can not use it even if you insert a SIM card from that country.  in this situation you can ask the carrier to unlock the iphone but you have to pay for it.

Note: locked iPhones are very cheaper than unlock factory iPhones.
