I have bought a marble white Galaxy S3
I bought it from a friend
He said he used it in o2 and thinks its locked on o2, he hasn't tried any other sim
I have the receipt for the phone and it wad pre ordered from carphone warehouse
When u switch it on then no o2 logo comes up, it just says Samsung and then s3 and that's it..
I don't wanna put a simcard in so how do I know if its unlocked without a sim card?

If it's from the Carphone Warehouse, then it's unlikely to be locked to any network

just enter a non O2 SIM and if it says enter code it is locked (no other way i dont think)

Sounds like it unbranded too so you will have to put the Gifgaff sim in to find out, there is no other way i'm afraid.
