    I had an accelerometer and gyro sensor problem with the Lumia 920 I bought from EE that I had unlocked for use for other networks.
    The Nokia repair centre have now decided to send me a replacement phone as the one I sent them was unrepairable.
    While this is great news I am now wondering what this means in terms of OTA updates (will I get them faster because it's not EE branded) and whether the phone is unlocked for all network sim cards as standard.

    Does anyone know?
    Thanks in advance

    I hope this is not the case as I don't want to fork out again to get it unlocked.Fingers crossed that they saw the phone was unlocked when it was at the repair centre.
