    I have 2 HTC Desire phones, both sealed
    One on Orange and the other on Virgin

    I wanted to keep one of them for my own use

    Can someone tell me: are either of these unlocked?
    If I was to keep one of them, which should I keep?

    AND, what's a Goldcard?? I just saw this mentioned on a recent post
    If either of my phones are locked, do I need to get a Goldcard to unlock and use?
    (I've trued googling - but still am a little confused)

    Thanks


    OM

    I always thought you could put a virgin sim in an orange phone like you can put a tesco sim in a o2 phone but not the other way round.
