Hello

I originally got my iphone from o2 when it was released. since then i had problems with sound when rec videos. Went to the apple store and they replaced my phone with a new one. Does this mean my iphone4 is unlocked or is it still locked?

Don't have a friend who's got an iphone4 and on another network to test it so any info on this would be grateful as i would like to use a Hong Kong sim whilst im on holiday there next month.

More than likely it's locked to O2. You can always call and ask sometimes they will give you the unlock code to use another sim. But then again they may say no they just want you using their network...
