    Looking to get the new Nokia 7210 when it comes out & have seen it advertised on O2 pay as you go for £299.

    Was told by a friend that O2 don't bother to lock the phones so it's possible to use a vodafone sim card in it.

    Is he telling the truth or am I gonna need to get it unlocked as soon as I get it to allow me to use my vodafone sim card in it ???



    Cheers

    The carphone warehouse say that all their phones are locked to the sims but they never are. My m8 must of had about 20 of them and none have been locked.

    i have had a whole load of phones from o2 and they have been locked. If you buy a contract phone it is usually unlocked tho.

    Ithink you will find that all GSM phones can be switched from Voda-O2 and vicer-versa.

    nah, o2 fones are generally unlocked now. all the contract are unlocked and the majority of prepay are unlocked. i think the 7210 will be unlocked as all the other nokais on o2 prepay at the moment are also unlocked.
