    to all those who got their X10 on contract in the UK, is your phone locked or unlocked?

    I heard O2 do not lock their phones while the others do.

    Thanks.

    put in a different sim card, if it connects to the network its unlocked.

    AFAIK, O2 and carphone warehouse dont lock their phones. The others do.

    I put an O2 sim in my tmobile phone and it appers to be locked. It asks to enter SIM network unlock PIN.

    T-Mobile X10 is locked to T-Mobile.

    If you get it from the Carphone Warehouse, the phone will be unlocked

    Did mine on an O2 upgrade at The Carphone Warehouse, so pretty sure its unlocked as there's no O2 branding in the phone. :)

    Mine from an O2 store was also unlocked

    Generally any phones from CPW, O2 contract and vodafone contract are unlocked. Stock from other networks or on O2 or vodafone PAYG will be locked

    I'm on VF, but haven't checked though I believe they're network unlocked.

    Shame they're locked into Vodafone releasing the software though! They are so damn slow at getting round to it as I found out when I jumped in feet first with the C905 when it was released. Oh well, second time lucky (I'm not holding my breath though!).
