Is my contract phone unlocked

Hi.

My Xperia Z phone has just come out of contract and I have upgraded to an Xperia M.

As I intend to sell the Xperia Z I just need to know if Virgin Mobile contract phones are unlocked, I imagine that they would be given the contract aspect, but would like some verification.

 

Thanks.

Re: Is my contract phone unlocked

Hi ClockworkOrange,

 

all new mobile phones sold by Virgin on their new "Freestyle" contracts are unlocked.

However earlier contract phones may well be network locked.
The fee to unlock is £15.30.

 

The best advise would be to insert another network SIM into the phone and see if it works to establish whether your mobile is unlocked or not.

Just too add on Alex's answer, make sure the sim you try does not run on the EE network.
