    Thank you both for your replys.....Is there anyway of knowing because i'm selling a phone as brand new and sealed and thought if i opened it and checked it might lower the value of it. Thanks.

    It costs about £10 to get a phone unlocked.

    Could leave that to the person who buys it!

    No mobiles that are on contract are locked to a network, my mate gave me a Motorola he had on contract with o2 3 months ago, he had a free upgrade and they didnt want his old phone back (or forgot about it) put my virgin payg sim and worked fine, used it is Australia with a telstra sim i bought over there and it worked fine:)

    Thanks MANJ_007...

    Contract phones that I have had from O2 have been locked.
    I only tried an orange sim but it did not work.
    I always presumed they would be locked.

    Thanks for your reply.....the phone is a sony ericsson w980 so if anyone has received one from o2 and can confirm if it's unlocked that would be great. Thanks :thumbsup:

    I buy contract devices from O2 at work and they are all locked, remember there is a balance between how much you get for it unlocked and how much it would be unopened

    you would be well advised to open the box to check the contents are complete incase your purchaser says otherwise and put on your advertisment its opened to check the contents were complete. :thumbsup:

    AFAIK O2 phones are locked unless you got it from carphone warehouse. O2 … AFAIK O2 phones are locked unless you got it from carphone warehouse. O2 phones are pretty much debranded though.



    Might explain why all mine have been unlocked in the past! Cheers

    Thanks for your help.....I've had 3 samsung phones from o2 online and they've all been unlocked. Would the box be o2 branded if it was locked? Thanks.
