    Phones 4 U

    Just wondering if phones purchased from Phones4U can be used with any sim card, or are stuck with the network you buy them as

    e.g. If you buy a phone with a PAYG orange £10 top up, can you then use an O2 sim with it?

    Has to be pink (not ordering for me, ordering as a present for someone)

    Carphonewarehouse only sell it in black

    Not having much luck! Lol

    It's more expensive though. Get it unlocked?

    Sorry, I am useless when it comes to stuff like that, how would I unlock it?

    Local market, small phone shop etc. Costs about £10 max

    Or get one of ]these

    phones 4 have phoned which are usually locked to the specific network. You can ask them to try another sim in it but the last three times i did this it was a locked handset.
    Carphonewarehouse phones are unlocked so simply buy on the cheapest deal....

    Repped everyone for their help

    Not sure what I am going to do yet, but at least I know for sure that I need to get an O2 handset if I order from phones4u
