    Went into a shop - asked for an unlocked handset:

    "Sorry we don't do unlocked handsets - we do SIM free..."

    If a hand set is unlocked - it works on any network
    If it is SIM free - it works on any network

    Errr - same thing or not?

    A SIM free phone comes with no SIM, but could still be locked, an unlocked
    phone will be unlocked, but may come with a sim. Simple

    I ordered two SIM free Motorola V525's for my kids expecting them to be able
    to put their o2 SIM cards in, fortunately I did a little investigating first
    and discovered that the phones were locked to the Vodafone network. The
    place I ordered from said that they were SIM free because a buyer could put
    any Vodafone card in!

    I cancelled the order because it's another 30 to get the phones unlocked.
