I plan to buy a moto G5 to replace my samsung galaxy4 as my screen is broken. Is the Moto G5 sim free locked to a network. I am purchasing this from john lewis if that makes a difference. Thanks

SIM free means you can use any network sim card.

You need to check this with JL as it could be either.

The phone will be SIM free and unlocked.

The phone should be unlocked if that is the description. However ensure the phone supports the band of the network you are on.

When I was back in the UK for instance the Network 3 was a tricky one to buy handsets for as they used a frequency that was different from many others.

"...ensure the phone supports the band of the network you are on."

You can check which providers use which frequencies here.
