    Do refurbished iPhone 5 lock to the first sim inserted?

    Hi all, I've just ordered an apple certified refurbished iPhone 5 but unsure if the first sim determines the iPhone sim lock status. I've got about 6 months left on my orange contract so I would like to use this then switch to three 321. Thanks.

    If it's directly from Apple it should be unlocked, Unless it's a replacement.

    Yeah, should be unlocked if you ordered from Apple.

    EDIT: You say you've ordered one? So I'm guessing its not a replacement but I didn't know that you could buy refurbished iPhone 5's from Apple, care to confirm?

    It isn't from apple, it's from another shop but it says it's apple certified refurbished so I'd imagine it's the same? Comes with 1 year apple care also

    Another shop? Can't really help other without knowing.

    It should say what network it is on.

    I have ordered one 2 and it's open to any network as I asked that question...hope that help
