My S5 is network locked to Vodafone UK, and has their ROM on it. If I rooted my phone and flashed a different ROM (the generic European S5 ROM for example), would this in effect unlock my phone, allowing me to use it with SIM cards from other networks ?

Thanks for the quick response. I just used an online service to unlock my phone.
