If it is locked as you say then it will be. Then again it will come down to where you are getting it from. Who is the supplier?

As I purchased before few devices listed as Vodafone locked mostly the came unlocked
Phones from vodafone are usually locked, unless purchased through carphone warehouse or phones 4u
Are you saying you actually want it locked?? It's beneficial if it's not locked, as will work with Vodafone and other networks instead of just Vodafone.

No, off course I prefer the phone unlocked, otherwise I m going to buy unlock code, but in that case the phone packaging will be open, which is my main concern

Contract mobiles from Vodafone (excluding IPhones) are always unlocked. You may have the splash screen, though.

Eight Vodafone contract mobiles in two years, not a single one locked. All supplied directly from the network.
