Open dialler and put *#*#7378423#*#* (its *#*#service#*#*), then service info>simlock. There arę 5numbers, if all of them arę 0, then there is no.simlock, if any of them is something more than 0, you've Got simlock

Same interest goes for me.
I now have an orange SIM inside and i would like to know if my phone is unlocked (i do not have another SIM - from a different carrier - to try it). I got a replacement from where i bought the phone (the other one was damaged). I just want to say that the damaged phone was branded by Orange and it was sim locked to that carrier. I had to ask that carrier to unlock it. But this phone is not branded by Orange. Could it be unlocked?
Here is a screen-shot.

it's unlocked man! you can try any sim card to confirm. but I'm pretty sure it's unlocked.

your wrong, its the exact opposite, if you have any 0 in the sim category then the phone is blocked at counter and cannot be unlock.
