I got a phone from craigslist. Status shows L710VPUCMK3. Is the bootloader locked on this? How do I tell if it is?

boot into bootloader, if it has warranty bits in the list, then it has knox.

MK3 is the last JB update before the KK. If you are on stock, chances are you have Knox. But I don't believe that's what you're asking. Sprint does not lock their bootloaders, which makes them much easier to root. As far as Knox, like @joeyhdownsouth said, just reboot into download mode and check the warranty bit counter.
