So I am on this great trip through Asia (currently in Nepal, for the curious), but unfortunately my HTC phone got wet and stopped serving me. So soon I will be going to Bangkok, and I was considering getting myself a phone there. My question is whether phones in Thailand, and especially the Huawei Ascend brand, come with a simlock? I also wonder the same for the Samsung Galaxy line. And if these phones are simlocked, are these locks easily removed? I know that Huawei delivers tools to root your phone easily, but does rooting also give me a simlock free phone?
Probably this question has been answered somewhere on this forum, but please excuse me for not searching thoroughly since Nepal has horrible internet connections and posting this question already requires tremendous efforts and time. So imagine what searching a forum would be like.
