    Are phones sim locked when you get them on contract

    Has the title say. Are they sim locked? Take the iPhone 4 for example. If I go and get it and take it with a 2 year contract will they sim lock it?

    All I find is that its illegal to sim lock in HK but they left a few loop holes in there. So what is it in real life? Do they.. well... do they?

    And please mention the network you use so I know what network your talking about

    Can find anything on it here either.. Please help a soon to be fellow gwailo

    Its not sim locked if you buy in HK, regardless the network.

    Actually its a govt regulation not to sim lock phones for the sake of making subscriber base, but can sim lock for the sake of safety/contract rental pay back.
