I received this phone last week and was surprised to see the Vodaphone logo when it was switched on without a SIM. This makes me think it's been unlocked. The other thing to note if you buy from this seller is that it's not from the UK. Looks like German booklets and set up. You cdan change the language setting though which is good and you will need to go online to get a UK manual! Apart from that though it's a great phone so far!
