The point about this phone is more that it is *unbranded* rather than unlocked.

Unlocked means that you can indeed use any SIM in it.

You can get a phone from an operator and have its SIM lock lifted, but the
phone will still be branded with the operator's customized firmware.

I don't know how it works for other brands, but as far as Nokia phones are
concerned, you need to get the phone unlocked and then you need to get
written permission from the network operator to debrand the phone legitimately.

Or you can do this:

All parts should go together without forcing.  You must remember that the
parts you are reassembling were disassembled by you.  Therefore, if you
can't get them together again, there must be a reason.  By all means, do
not use a hammer.
