are 3 UK contract phones unlocked?

    Searched online but not getting a definitive answer. Are 3 UK contract phones sold unlocked or locked to their network please?


    I was told by 3 that they are unlocked but not tried any other sim in it to find out

    mine was 3 years ago.. didn't try until my contract ended.

    Hmm thanks guys online it says they do come unlocked as well but the information looks outdated.

    Yeah, there phones come unlocked as of a few years ago...

    If not 3 unlock them free anyways just a form to fill in

    I recently asked Three about this and was sent this link. It depends on the date you bought your device. It says "If you bought your device from us after 1 January 2014, your device will already be unlocked."…772,Case=obj(4363)

    I bought a 3 payg Honor 8 and use it with my EE contract. so yes, I'd say they are unlocked.

    Yes, every phone you get from three is unlocked.

    Yes as many buying Lenovo P2 to use on other networks.

    Unlocked now

    I have been with 3 for over 10 years and all the phone's now are unlocked so pop any SIM in and away you go.
