    The Desire I obtained from the local 3 Store came in a standard HTC Desire box with no special marking and just the standard HTC quick start guide. I just had a thought that it might be unlocked so I tried Orange, Vodafone and O2 PAYG SIMs. All seem to work giving me phone service but not data. The box is marked HTC Desire A8181. Am I correct in thnking it is unlocked?

    If you've just recently got it from Three(3) the first one's they sent out were unbranded unlocked ones.

    So to answer your question I would say yes. :)

    It's SIM free, as mine was from Three.

    If the software version is 1.15.405.4 then it's SIM free.
