    I have no idea if this is in the right place, so if it isn't, please move it.

    I'm hoping to pick up an older model unlocked WP7 phone (the LG Optimus 7, if that makes a difference), but as I'm brand-new to Windows Phone, I'm unsure if I can upgrade it to Windows Phone 7.5 on account of it being unlocked. I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but I really have no idea. Thanks!

    Yes, you can upgrade it to 7.5 :) You'll also be able to upgrade to 7.8 when that comes out, if interested.

    Have you tried the force update trick?
    1) Disconnect you WP7 from Wifi and 3G/Data Connection.
    2) Connect your WP7 to Zune, go to Phone Tab settings and check for update.
    3) Once the search for update starts, wait for 3 to 5 seconds and disconnect your Laptop/Desktop from internet (Wifi and/or ethernet).
    4) just wait as the zune will continue searching. don't disconnect your phone, just wait.
    5) The update will appear for you. here connect back your Laptop/Desktop to internet.
    6) Click on Update.

    Try it a few more times if it doesn't work. If it still doesn't after that, I'm not sure of another way. You'll have to wait it out and hope it pops up, or hold out for the 7.8 update.

    All current Windows Phone (LG Optimus 7, HTC TITAN, etc) will get 7.5 and 7.8 - International Unlocked or otherwise. Don't worry, you will get your update :)
