I'm selling my 4S on ebay not got a buyer yet but do Apple lock phones? I got it from the Apple site last year and it's been on O2 can't try anything else in it.

I had the Iphone 4 and upgraded to the Iphone 4S (sim free) from Apple.com?

When you say upgraded do you mean it was subsidised by o2 or upgrade to you personally as in "I purchased the 4 after having a 3G"?

If it was subsidised, it will be locked.
