SIM unlocked, yes. The bootloader should be locked when you purchase the phone.

SIM free but Vodafone Germany firmware (based on .55) has unlockable bootloader allowed: YES (probably bought contract free drom Vodafone Germany). Though I don't know about phone on contracts from Vodafone Germany (SIM locked) if they have allowed on not unlockable bootloaders.
