O2 contract to Tesco PAYG

My daughter gave me her old O2 contract Iphone 4. Because Tesco use the O2 network can I use a Tesco PAYG sim in the iphone 4 without having the phone unlocked?

The calls to the previous user will not come to your phone anyway. I am assuming they retained their sim card for use in another replacement phone. The phone number is embedded in the sim card itself so changing the sim card changes the phone's number to whatever is embedded in the new sim card. The embedded number can only be changed by the phone company who issued the sim in the phone ie. Vodafone, EE etc.

Hi Toejams.

Just trying to keep it simple without bringing in extra levels of complexity.
