I can’t tell you how pleased I am that my newest handset purchase — the Samsung ACE from Sprint — works perfectly fine on Vodafone UK. It’s a CDMA/GSM handset — which is why I bought it — only to find out that I didn’t have the right account settings in order to use it abroad.
It was looking like a totally wasted purchase. But they haven’t locked it, it seems.
That’ll do nicely.
