Default Is your galaxy s3 network locked

I had my s3 supplied by orange UK and thought that it would probably be locked to orange although there was no branding on the box or phone.

Started looking over the net to see how I could check and found that if you enter *# 7465625# and they read off or disabled then your phone is completely unlocked.

Mine is which is a real bonus so well chuffed.

Sorry if this was already known to everyone but was new to me and thought it might be useful for some people.

Got mine direct from O2, presumed it was locked down tight but using the code you provided it shows as fully unlocked.

Bonus!

Thanks for pointing this out

Could be due to the delay just to get the phones out the networks haven't had time to put their code into Android, perhaps when they get all the preorders out future ones will.

Mine is from Affordable mobiles so I know it will not be locked
Device: Xperia Z2

ROM: Stock

Kernel: Stock

I was told that I had a version of orange software on here, although no orange apps etc. But phone was really buggy so flashed with the latest release, been really good since the.

Just pleased its not locked also, helps in the event I don't remain happy with it and decide to sell it.
