No it's not, some are some aren't, I think all O2 phones from carphone warehouse are unlocked.


I see, my son wants one and due to no pennies wanted to get from the catalogue, have rang them but they didnt know (or want to say) anyway the one he wants is not on t-mobile :-(

urban legend then, typical, but thank you guys, saved me some aggro, cheers

Just get it unlocked if it isn't.

99%(made up figure) of contract o2 phones are unlocked, but not so many PAYG.

what phone is it, it probably easy and cheap to get unlocked anyway, maybe we could find it cheaper, or is a catalogue your only option

what phone is it, and what catalogue, how much is the difference between the o2 and tmobile? you got vouchers or anything to use? does it have to be a specific catalogue or will any do, as most catalogues do a voucher for 1st time users

You can get one of these that fit under the SIM card, that way no messing around with the firmware of the phone.

Its not the network that determines whether the phone is unlocked or not MM...

For the vast majority of phones its the firmware installation that determines whether it is unlocked or not. Carphonewarehouse sell their phones at diff prices for diff networks, however every phone I have bought from them have been unbranded and unlocked.

If the phone you have is already locked then you have a couple of options. You can either use a TurboSIM that fools the phone into connecting to the network that your SIM is set up on, or the other option is to take it to mobile shop and get it unlocked for around a fiver or tenner.

Or buy a phone advertised as SIM free. :)

I can get the same sim deal on voda so changing network is an option, with all the fuss that goes with it. Going to try saint's idea and see how we go from there :):)

LOL @ that.. I dont have a rep at all. I hardly ever come in to misc. Every time I'm here it just so happens that theres a gang bang in every thread.

Besides. I've moved on now, I call my Thai chick every night n do the whole phonesex n cam thing. She seems to like it. :w00t:
