Question: What is a locked phone?

Since handsets are heavily subsidised and represent a significant portion of the value of the contract, as industry standard they are typically locked to the network. Some phones can be unlocked and used with other networks however if you are in a contract this is usually considered a breach of contract.

We recommend against doing this as the phone may not work as well without the original network settings, and you may find yourself liable for penalties according to the terms of your contract.
