Default Three lock yes or no?

So I'm gonna buy one of these and the three locked variant is cheaper. Does three not allow boot loader unlocking, as they did with their xperia T?

It is pot luck.... I am on three, I had a swap out due to dead screen pixels original had bootloader unlock allowed no, yet this current one has unlock bootloader allowed yes.

So you might be able but until you get device you won't know.

It is certainly sim locked

Hope this helps

Wow, so I take a gamble I think, afterall even if I get an unlocked one as I'm buying used it could have just been unlocked at the shop no difference at all between the two handsets? Except what counts?
