Usually if a phone has a lock it doesn't apply abroad as thats how ive known it once a friend of mine had a bb that was unlocked and he took it to Bulgaria and it worked and sold it out there

Yes it should do, as far as i am aware the lock only applies in the country and not a lock on the handset itself

As long as you have a company that uses a sim card you can put it int o the iphone and should work regardless of the country

The "T-Mobile" phone is also listed as an unlocked phone and it is.
