Thanks for reading.

They do come sim locked. However, getting an unlock code isn't difficult. Worth calling customer services in your 1st 7 days & saying u need to use the phone abroad. Worked for me.

Yes I could try that but I was looking for a quicker and cheaper way.

Actually I was unlocked within a few mins of making the call - unlock code got texted to me. And it was free - most likely because I was within my first 7 days of a new contract.

If it's not a new contract phone, then some others have reported chainfire's region lock away to work:
