Hi there is there anyway of finding out if a iphone is locked, or unlocked without having to keep trying sims thanks.
I know it works on 3 but wondered if there is a way of knowing with out trying other sims cheers

Was it purchased on contract? If so it will be locked to that network.

a tv shopping channel selling a recon iphone 4 ?
sounds a bit suspicious to me to be honest.

it all depends on the terms it was sold under.
PAYG phones will usually be locked to the network of the first sim put into it.

iphones bought direct from apple as "sim free" are 100% unlocked.
