Confused Buying SGS2 from Dial-A-Phone? HELP!

I was going to get a Samsung galaxy S2 as an Orange upgrade from Dial-A-Phone (Who are owned by Phones 4U)... However I haven't done it yet because i'm not sure if their phones are locked and I really do not want a locked or branded handset.

I need to know as soon as possible because I want to get the phone but does anyone know if phones from Dial-A-Phone are unlocked and unbranded like Carphone Warehouse & mobiles.co.uk? I asked the guy on the phone and he wasnt sure, even checked but said he cannot confirm it.

Anyone had any phones from Dial-A-Phone, or a SGS2 from there? on orange maybe?

Thanks!

as far as im aware thats illegal. Distance selling regs state you have 7 days to change your mind no matter what.

Be different if you got it from a shop

hmm he said they cannot advise it but they could do it, however it would only be to exchange for another phone, i could not return it or cancel the upgrade which i thought was a bit crap
