I cannot say for definite. As far as I currently know sim free phones and contract phones from Three come boatloader unlocked.

However my HTC HD2 on contract with Virgin a few years back came sim/bloatware free so I'd wager it could be a possibility.

Sure, my 3 uk is sim and bootloader unlocked and thus rootable.

What I meant to say is although I cannot say for definite, what I remember from having a contact phone with Virgin myself is that they used to send was a sim free phone pretty much like those from the cpwh and phones4u.

I'd phone Virgin personally. I am with Virgin myself but baulked at the price they were charging.
