There are a few devices on which the bootloader can be unlocked without the need of a PC and fastboot command sets. For example, many Samsung devices can be bootloader unlocked by going to device Settings>About Phone and tapping Build Number 7 times until Developer Options is enabled. In Developer Options, enabling the OEM Unlock option will unlock the bootloader, thus disabling the layer of protection which restricts flashing of certain device partitions. Other than Samsung, there are some device OEMs and models which also allow bootloader unlocking in this manner. However, on most devices, in addition to enabling OEM Unlock, fastboot mode must be initiated, device and PC synced with a cable, and a command line or command set must be executed.
If your device oem unlock is greyed out, you can try unlocking it using fastboot and recovery mode with the help of a pc.

Carrier-locked devices generally do not have unlockable bootloaders, or at the very least until 6 months has passed for a SIM unlock in the case with Metro going by how T-Mobile handled bootloader unlocking with the OnePlus 6T. However, that's unconfirmed and I could not find any information on either carrier-locked models for the N100 regarding this matter. So for now, it's a dead end.
