Depends, most Contract phones won't, some PAYG will.

If it comes in a (T Mobile in this case) network branded box
it'll be locked, if in a manufacturers box (Nokia, etc) probably not.

Yes (mostly). Having said that, it's still a good idea to ask them
prior to purchase, but expect to get three different answers if you ask
three different members of staff.

Well, I've put a Orange SIM card in the handset and it works! Does this mean
a O2 SIM will work in it?

HI as Steve Terry[_2_] said If it comes in a (T Mobile in this case) network branded box it'll be locked due to this you can't use that phone with other network sim until you unlock it ..You can easily unlock your phone from t-mobile network lock using sites like MobileUnlockSolutions.com here they are rendering unlock code for all mobile models at reliable cost ....After unlocking your phone you can freely use it with any GSM sim ....
