    Default Samsung Galaxy S2 Question

    Chaps,

    I have a brand new sealed in the box Samsung Galaxy S2 that I will be putting up for sale.

    Question is - before I advertise - does anyone know if these come locked to the mobile phone operator?

    This was sent direct from Vodafone.

    Cheers

    Its unlikely that the phone would be locked. However you could state that in your advert it came from Vodafone and you are unsure if it is locked to the network.

    Easy way to find out is test a couple of your mates sim cards in it if they are on different networks

    If they all work, hey presto!!

    I have one on Voda and it's not locked. I got it from Phones 4 U though, so I'd check yours if it came direct, as a lot of the providers put their own software on them.
