Actually, the converter will lock up after it shifts into overdrive (4th gear).
OP - the easiest way to tell is to just count the gear changes when pulling away from a stop. You should be able to hear, feel, and see (on the tach if equipped) each gear change. First to second, second to third, third to 4th, then the torque converter will lock up when conditions are right. The converter locking up may feel like the trans is shifting again, but it is not. When the converter locks it is just creating a mechanical coupling of the engine and trans, where as when unlocked all the power is being transferred via fluid, thus allowing slippage.
