iphone 3g bought direct from Apple's website .is it locked to a provider

I have been given an iphone 3g that was bought direct from the Apple website several years ago, and I would like to know if its locked to any particular provider.
It was back in the days when only O2 were offering iphone contracts, but the phone was never registered to O2 - it was unlocked with some third party software. Im now looking to upgrade the software to the latest version through iTunes but dont want the phone to become locked (and I dont really know what Im doing to try and unlock it with third party tools).
Someone told me that iphones bought direct from Apples website are not locked to any provider, but I want to know if this is true of my old 3G that was bought back when O2 had exclusive rights.
Im looking to use it with a UK Vodafone SIM.

Apple ID locked post changing it

I had posted earlier a question which was resolved quickly and accurately http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2670578&tstart=0 and later on I was able to change my ID to the correct email address.
One of the App Sores, I think on the iPad and the iTunes on the Mac Book Pro was still using the other session with the incorrect ID.. it kept functioning till I think it refreshed and was kicked out of the server.
Now I tried to re-enter into iTunes with the correct ID and it took me to the payment information for me to verify that information before making purchases as was written.
When I continue through that process, it comes back with a popup window saying Your request is temporarily unable to be processed. Please try again later..
Is this temporary and because of perhaps scheduled maintenance, or have I caused my account to be locked? I tried it from two iPhones, 3GS and a 4, still same error.
Looking forward to be helped.
Thank you.

Please do a recall on Apple iphone 4 and 4s Chargers is this an APPLE call or cell phone company problem Apple please help I I take excellent care of my wall charger and it unravel where the charger is attached to the Apple iphone call can u help

Dear community Happy New Year .listen I have a Apple Iphone 4s:I have had this as a gift since may 2012.Its good,but my daughter and about 10 other people I know are having problems with their wall chargers in home and maybe even mobile im not sure.I especially take great care in disconnecting my device and removing the cord when not in use. the wear and tear cannot be that often to cause this damage we are all having !The cord on the charger is unravelling from the base where the apple iphone is attached when or while charging. I have use the cord in very bad conditions because #one I cannot afford to replace this item at the OFFICIAL APPLE STORE so Im guessing people like myself is going to discount stores to make purchase of chargers they most likely not work! I have tried 3 and none work spending anywhere from $8.00-$15.00 dollars. Im also concern about the fact that a lot of CHILDREN who must most likely go un supervised on using this unravelled IPHONE CHARGER CORD  when their parents maynot be aware. I not the voltage may not be of that large in which someone could cause shock or harm Im not certain of this either, However theres always a first Im asking can you either number one recall these chargers via Apple Corportation or two these cell phone companies who sell your product make them accountable for this .I learned today through Apple that the cell phone companies that sell Apple product use 3rd parties material to produce these mobile and home wall chargers and that they are not made by APPLE CORPORATION I WAS VERY UPSET TO KNOW THIS !I am asking you APPLE  to look into this very important concern that not just me but other consumers may have before their is an injury. also if you sell a $500.00 product thats MADE IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY CERTAINLY YOU CAN INCLUDE A GENIUNE CHARGER WITH YOUR APPLE PRODUCT WHEN SOLD IN CELL PHONE COMPANIES STORES AND STRIP MALLS ACROSS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND SURELY PEOPLE ARENT AWARE THAT THE REAL PRODUCT IS ONLY AT THE APPLE STORE EVEN IF THIS IS TRUE !  ps I called the apple store today to get a replacement they wanted to charge me would only offer me a $1.25 cent discount ! IST THIS WHAT APPLE PAY TO HAVE OTHER COUNTRIES MAKE THE IPHONE? THANKS APPLE FOR HEARING MY

CONCERNS....mpena309@gmail.com   or mybigoboy@icloud.com

HT2240 Why is an Apple Update download being sent to us my iPhone 4S for example if it's NOT endorsed by Apple I almost downloaded & paid for it I feel tricked & feel like this should NOT be allowed I want to trust Apple & I thought

Why is an Apple Update download being sent to us (my iPhone 4S for example) if its NOT endorsed by Apple -- I almost downloaded & paid for it!  I feel tricked & feel like this should NOT be allowed! Im talking about the QuickTime 7 Pro registration keys (codes) to use the downloaded QuickTime 7 Pro -- it popped-up on my computer under the guise of Apples downloads!  I want to trust Apple, & I thought I did, until this?  After some research I found out Apple does NOT endorse this!  They need to advertise like all others!  NOT pop-up under the guise that its a necessary update for ALL our Security!  Apple should NOT allow this!  What stopped me is that they said I had to purchase it AFTER the download -- but they didnt say how much!  This is tricky & time consuming Research!  I dont have time to research everything that looks legite from a Trusted Company!  Apple should NOT allow this!!!

Locked iPhone

iPhone is LOCKED

Quick version: I updated the software with iTunes. iTunes froze and said it could not be updated. The phone, however, is locked with the disk icon and a USB cable icon. Unfortunately, when I plug the phone into the usb port (tried them all) the phone is not recognized by itunes. Id love to call support, but my phone does not work, and since I cannot find an email contact, Im left to this forum.
The longer version: I bought a new laptop, and I tried installing itunes software, of course, nothing worked after spending 4 hours working with it and the support site. I was forced to contact support and spend another hour on the phone with them. Finally, the software installs. As the the iphone and itunes sync, itunes keeps asking to update the software for the phone (Im using v.9, itunes), so I foolishly acquiesce, and now Im left with a brick that is costing me $$$$.
Ive done the hold home button/sleep button, but the slide bar does not come up. It simply turns off. When it restarts, same screen reappears: Disk icon with USB cable icon. Ive read a few website recommending a hard reset, but I cannot get to the screen to start the process. At this point, I do not care about losing my info, I need to be able to make phone calls, immediately.
Honestly, this is ridiculous.... at a minimum, is there an email support?
On a side note, I never realized how much we rely on cell phones. I feel like I on a desert island....

Locked out of my own iPhone 3G

My iPhone 3G shows that it wants me to connect it to iTunes but once I do it says its password locked. Its my iPhone, not stolen, and I know the password. I just cant get to the screen where I put in my password. It only tells me to connect to iTunes and it allows me to slide for emergency calls. I keep turning it on and off but the same screen keeps coming up. I held both the power button and the menu button together and it looks like it resets but again it keeps returning to the same screen.
How do I restore or get the password screen to come up so I can enter my password?

Locked IPhone

I have an original IPhone 4GB. It is no longer connected to service. Want to use it as MP3 player. Phone is now disabled, only allows for emergency calls. Screen says I should connect to ITunes. When I do that, it says I need to enter a passcode but I see no option to do that when I connect.
Any ideas?

iphone is locked

After hanging up from a phone call, another came in but I could not answer it. It showed the contact picture so I knew who it was but I was unable to answer. I turned the phone off and then I removed the sim card. I returned the sim card less than a minute later and turned the phone back on. It has been locked since then. I can still receive phone calls and texts but I cannot answer. This might sound strange but it has now happened 3 times since Ive had this phone and each time it was on a Saturday evening. Pattern

iPhone is locked

my iPhone is locked and requires me to enter in a passcode to unlock it. I have never told it to use a passcode at all and am not sure what code to enter. I cant find anywhere whether there is a basic passcode set up to begin with. I cannot even unlock my phone to call customer services...
Can anyone help?
Many Thanks,
