Usually, if a phone have a network lock, only works with cards of that network! It gonna work with your SIM, if cames withouth any lock, who is rare, wenn selled by an operator.

Usually the network lock phones are more cheap then others, and is necessary to sign a contract with operator. After that, only operator can unlock the phone.
