if the phone is not locked it will state, not personalised

I'm still looking for a rooting guide, after I destroyed my first gt540

Hi thanks ive never seen the words not personalised so guess it is locked, when i checked the select network menu orange is greyed out and vodafone. But t-mobile and o2 settings are chooseable so guess it would work on them.

How did you destroy your first gt540 doesnt the rooting guides l around work? I wil be rooting soon once i undestand the full details of what it does and every step in detail. thx
