Im currently on Android 4.3 with a Optus Simcard.
Thanks in advance!

Whether the lock may affect you is anyone's guess but the UK & European phones that come with region lock have a sticker on the outside.
I don't believe you will have any problems but that is still just a guess....

I cant take my optus simcard over to nz as its not mine, so i cant do the 5 min call part, but i might grab a prepaid simcard just incase.
One of the best things about the modern day smartphone is its ability to save us … more
