Does the Alcatel and ZTE Firefox OS phones come with a network lock ?

I plan to buy one of the two new phones from Spain / Poland running Firefox OS and I'm curios to know if they come with a network lock that will prevent me to use it from Romania, or will they come unlocked?

Thank you!

I am proposing to buy ZTE OPEN fire fox phone China. Is it possible to use it in Uganda? Do I need to unlock it or the carrier cannot support it?

These phones are locked, but apparently the ones sold in spain are relatively easy to unlock. I don't have more information ATM on that though, sorry Smiley Sad

Can you please point me to something even remotely helpful regarding the unlocking ?

You should be able to contact Movistar and ask that your phone be unlocked. They'll provide a code and instructions for how to do so.

In my case I bought it from Spain and now I'm using it in Romania. The phone was locked, but calling their call center I managed to get the NCK code that will easily unlock the phone.

I would really REALLY avoid johnboyoldguy's solution unless you're really REALLY desperate and you can't call their info line.
