did you have unlock bootloader = yes in service menu?
if the phone can boot properly (to the home screen) with experimental kernel the bootloader is unlocked... to see if it is installed go in settings>phone info and see if under kernel version there is "experimental-12"
another check go in conversation app and select share location>current position... if this Fc with the message "service not available" the bootloader it's unlocked
if the phone can't boot with experimental kernel the bootloader is locked
for pc companion i don't know
with experimental kernel you can boot only a JB rom
