No, only iPhones do that, AFAIK, apart from ones from Apple itself. I have had Motorola, Sony, Huawei etc. that all remain unlocked, unless this has recently changed (last phone from CPW was about 9 months ago, I think).

No, all Carphone Warehouse phones are unlocked, although they do not deal with 3 anyway.

Ooh nice, heat
Wonder if I can get it without the £10 add on since I already have a 3 number?
Will the phone be locked to Three or could you swap the sim to say EE for example?

If you click through to the deal and scroll down a bit it says "already on three upgrade to this phone" think you have to log in to your three account to find out.
Give it a go and let us know how you got on.

Feel like I should ask has anyone on here used one of these? My parents are looking for new phones so doesn’t need to be anything fancy but easy to use / fairly responsive.

They might not deal with 3 but ID mobile that is carphonewarehouses network is piggy backed onto the 3 network, so an ID sim might work if the phone is locked.

These are ideal for parents. The only thing they might miss if they've had phones before with it are fingerprint (they might have got used to using it - I'd hate to go back) and NFC if they are used to using payments etc. If they don't need either of these features and are looking to pay as little as possible for something reliable and snappy then I'd recommend this.
I wouldn't buy a 16Gb phone now, fills up too fast, 32gb should be minimum.

Expandable Memory: Up to 256GB, for £60 I don’t think it’s a huge deal breaker

Ideal. I was just looking for the same reason though was hoping he could have my old £100 Nokia and I'd get to upgrade.;) 12yr olds don't need anything more?

Yeah that's what I thought. We gave him my wife's old Xperia x and he smashed the screen within a cpl of weeks. So I don't want to spend too much, but still want him to have a phone he likes.
Just bought the mi a2 lite and I must say they do make great phones for the price. I'll never go back to Apple and Samsung now. Two thumbs up
Any issues with bloatware?
Almost All Dual Sim Phones should come or be Unlocked, otherwise defeats the purpose of Dual Sim.

Yes will be great. Daughter had one for Xmas and has been chuffed with it. Not great specs but good for the price.
Does it have a compass for maps?

The Miui version of android that most Xiaomi phones run does have a fair bit of bloatware . A lot of it is unnecessary in in global versions of the phones as its duplicates of google's offerings. E.g.
mi apps
mi drop
mi video
mi remote
mi commander
mi cloud

I don't like their text messaging app either as it keeps nagging you to use their web-based messaging ( mi message) , it won't accept you don't want it - be aware if you activate it lots of messages won't get through. My partner had to install a different text message app because she got fed up of "message failed" every time she tried to send a text.
shows as out of stock for either colour

Hmm, how's that work pls? I'm on a temporary phone with a SD card and very few of the apps will allow themselves to be placed onto the SD card so running out of space. I feel then that the phone memory is still very key
says out of stock on PAYG

My nearly 11 yr old has RedMi 6 - It's perfect. He was at school a couple of weeks ago and when asked what phone he had by some other boys he told them and they laughed. Seems that out of ignorance they prefer their parents old iPhone 4 which was originally released in 2010 when they were 2 years old... Apple will be pleased with the way they've managed to brain wash so many people who have in turn brainwashed their kids!
