I have a jail broken iPhone 4 (allowing me to use it as unlocked) but I have no idea if this phone was initially locked to a network in the first place before it was jailbroken.

I have entered my IMEI on numerous websites and it comes coming back as being unlocked. Is this because it is jailbroken, or is the phone actually unlocked?

If the IMEI is coming up unlocked, it's because the phone was unlocked at the carrier level. Jailbreak unlocking doesn't change that, it merely overrides the lock on the phone.
