Currently Being ModeratedFeb 15, 2011 4:32 AM (in response to Starsky72)I bought it from a guy who is a part of a car club I was a member of, a trustworthy chap.
I did wonder whether he was simply mistaken and the phone wasn't unlocked at all... I have dropped him a message but as of yet heard nothing back
Is there a way of telling what network a phone is locked to without the relevant SIM card?

This guy should know which carrier the iPhone is carrier locked with - with whatever carrier he was using it with. If he hacked the iPhone to unlock it, he should now this as well.

I guess the best thing is to ask him where HE got it from and why he thought it was unlocked, then talk about the price I paid
I have just searched around on the model number and it does seem to indicate that this model MCB603B/A is indeed a "locked" model - but I guess that could still mean locked to any one of the phone companies in the UK supplying the iphone.

Well in U.S at least on the back of the box, it has an AT&T logo or a Verizon Logo telling which carrier it belongs to.HP Pavilion DV2812tx, HP DV4-1504tx, Windows 7, iPod Hi-Fi, iPhone 4 32 GB Black
That's not the case in the UK.
All you can do is try sims from Tesco, O2, Orange, 3, T-Mobile and Vodafone......or wait for your friend to get back to you.
Orange do have their sims attached to the side though I'm guessing that would have been removed anyway.....MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.6), iPhone 3GS 16GB Orange UK (4.2.1)
