Default [Q] Bootloader Unlock Restrictions

Im considering getting this phone coming from a xperia T. On my xperia T I couldn't unlock the bootloader as it had been locked by the network and only phones that came factory unlocked could have their bootloader unlocked. Is there anything like that on this phone, as in if I buy this phone with a simlock (Meteor - Ireland) is there any chance that I wont be able to unlock the bootloader and therefore be stuck on stock based roms forever?

The website can refuse to offer unlock codes to some phones. If it's carrier locked, it may. Also it voids your warranty with Motorola even if it allows it, but you probably knew that.
