Is my Nexus 4 blocked by O2?

Anonymous
Not applicable

In July 2013 I purchased a LGE960 Nexus 4 handset direct from the Google Play Store, SIM free.

I purchased a SIM from O2 and installed it in the phone.

Can anyone advise if, by putting this SIM into the handset, it has blocked my phone to the O2 network?

I wish to use the handset with another networks SIM and see no reason for O2 to block a handset that I own.

Maybe someone has experienced this problem in the past and I would appreciate your advice.

Thank you. Anthony.

Swap sim cards as much as you want - It'll be fine.

No shouldn't do.
Sim free phones remain sim free always and no Nexus devices are network locked anyway.

If the phone was bought unlocked and sim free there should be no block on it. Have you tried to put a sim from another network in the phone and had a problem, or is this just a query?

Just a question before I start changing the SIM. I did not wish to land up self blocking the device or worse. Thanks for the answers to date. Anthony.
