Yes, but most phones can be unlocked to work with other carriers.

Yes they are. They are locked to the carrier that they go to in which Rogers phones are locked to Rogers. Some phones MIGHT ( rare chance) they might ONLY work for Fido. Every phone bell / Telus / Fido / Virgin & the others are locked to the carriers.

This is something the states & around the world have as well. The only way to unlock them is buying a unlock code.

Problem is...are they locked to SIM or Network?

From what i know & have read its Sim locked. That is why you are able to unlock the phone & use it with another Sim card. If it was Network locked it would be able to do that. ( unless i am wrong).

I used to work in a call center outsourced for AT&T and the phone does have a locked code and when people wanted there phones unlocked to move to another company we gave them the unlock code and walked them through how to unlock it and then they just had to get a new sim card and a new number from the company they chose to go to
