    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!

    i would mate, i very much doubt you would get a branded handset, but if your not sure mate id stick with car phone warehouse atleast then you no for definite it will be unbranded.

    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
