im about to list my old iphone 3G on ebay but im not sure if it is network locked as i got it as a $250 relpacment deal from the apple store 12 months ago, i dont have any other sims in the house to try.

does anyone know if they are normally unlocked? the broken phone i gave them was optus if that means anything?

If you swapped a phone at the Apple store then the phone you get will have the same network status, eg if it was locked to Optus, then the new one will also be locked to Optus. If it was unlocked, then the new one will be unlocked.
