According to

If it says the Bootloader unlock allowed is NO the bootloader is already unlocked is that right ?

That can't be right because mine is looked to orange and also says 'no' for boot loader unlocking and i have installed a bug fix update OTA and 2.3.4 via pc companion which would both brick a phone with an unlocked boot loader and mine downloaded fine.

Mine said no to unlock bootloader and was locked on o2 but I paid to have the sim unlocked and the bootloader for a small price of a web site, its a 100% safe and also you can still do OTA updates with out a brick.

No new play will come with the bootloader already unlocked, people with bootloader unlock is NO have to use the testpoint method of bootloader unlock

I sent you a pm with the site a link, as far as I knew if you are sim locked you cant unlock your bootloader until your sim is unlocked

Use jinx13 on this website, he unlocked my play, he will provide you with all the software you need, he does the unlock remotely using teamviewer, all you need is a paperclip.

No not at all, you don't need to sim unlock your device before you unlock the bootloader. Infact one of the features you get with the paid unlock method is, it will sim unlock your device too. So paying for a sim unlock first is a waste of money.
