Strange, i've just picked one up, it has an O2 splash and IS locked!
That is very strange !?!
What are the details shown on the about page ? (From the rooting thread on XDA I know there are two firmware versions doing the rounds XWKDD & XWKDA)
My details are
Android Version 2.3.3
Baseband Version I9100XXKDH
Kernel Version 18.104.22.168.I9100XWKDD-CL161513 root@DELL103 #2
Build number GINGERBREAD.XWKDD
(Screenshot available for the skeptical
Could it be that the XWKDD version is SIN unlocked and the XWKDA version is locked ?
Need to find a "CDC Serial" driver for windows XP though, seemingly yet again Samsung have shipped kies without the correct drivers bundled meaning it won't work
Though I do see there's what looks like a FOTA option under Settings/About/Software update which might make kies largely redundant.
-- UPDATE --
I think I've solved the driver problem, I manually ran the USB driver install program (C:\Program Files\Samsung\Kies\USB Driver\SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones.exe) again but this time selected United States as the location. After that the CDC driver seems to be being picked up correctly and kies is now playing nicely.
