depends where you buy them from. Car phone warehouse. Get the deal where they specify you need to pay a £10 for top up whereby you get the Sim separate from phone package(and you have to wait 8 days for credit) as the phone will be Sim free 99% of time (don't buy and orange one though) buy a voda or o2.

with your existing phone if it's on o2 try a voda sim, tmobile , orange sim in, see what it says.

Thank you for that, will have a look i didnt know vodaphone were unlocked too, though dont really want the top up as it will just go to waste

If you get the Sim in the phone box then chances are the phone is locked to that service provider.

If CPW sell you a phone with a separate Sim then it stands to reason it has to be unlocked for that Sim you will still just get 1 Sim) Sim free phones normally are more expensive to buy as is ..(you can get some cheap ones not very good phones feature wise)

You can get a few cheap Sim free phones if you search google

I googled too btw dcx badass before i made the post. My original question was whether 02 was locked and if so anyone know of any good deals. Whats wrong in thanking someone for taking their time to respond. So the face palm doesn't apply here

I think what he means is, are you planning on using a foreign Sim card from whatever country you are planning to visit and use a phone in .. Co's he was saying you can just use your o2 phone and Sim in that country if you wanted. (I think you maybe have to tell o2 or ask them to activate it probably a lot easier than that now as in probably simply just works)
