I am thinking of getting a sim free Samsung Tocco mobile. I have been told that this model will lock to a particular service provider when a sim card is first inserted. Is this so or could one switch to different sim cards?

No reply, just to update, I have the phone, no problem using two different sim cards.

Just to add, the two sim cards I am using are both on O2 although one is GiffGaff which uses the O2 network, would be interesting to try a sim on another service but that can wait. As to unlocking, a number of places do it for a fee, even on ebay...
