could be locked to network you purchase on...
- LOH1153

Except for iPhones (which locks to the first SIM inserted) and some Blackberries (some Blackberries are SIM free and some are not depending on model) and Network Branded phones, phones at Phones4U (like Carphone Warehouse) are NEVER locked. The phones are purchased directly from the manufacturer SIM free. They make their margin from the networks.

EDIT:

Just to add, when I tried to buy this from the Phones4U, instore, the guy tried all my various different network SIMs for the same handset. Also,except iPhones, no other phone locks to the first SIM inserted. iPhone does by using Apple's servers; no other manufacturer uses their servers to activate and keep lock status of the phone in the same way as Apple. Nokia sometimes does use an activation process by connecting to it's servers but it is nowhere near as sophisticated as Apple's process.
