Do Tesco Mobile use O2 Network?

I think they do, just want to make sure, as the sim only deals look better than O2, as they include free data

But Tesco phones are locked to tesco as is O2 phones locked to O2 and neither will accept each other sim. If you are going for Sim only then you need a unlocked phone

O2 phones will accept a Tesco sim card and fairly sure the Tesco phone will accept an O2 card.
