Are cellphones that have been "Liberated" supported?

Added by ariel del valle 19 days ago

I found the following cellphone in an on line store from my country:

It's says that it has been "liberated" which usually means in my country that the cellphone can now use SIM cards from other cellphone companies other than the original seller. I have notice that most of the supported phones by replicant are the international releases. If this cellphone originally didn't allow you to use other cellphone company's SIM, could this mean that it is not the international flavor and most probably not compatible with replicant? or is it that as long as it is a i9100 it should be supported?

Thank you.

In the U.S., the term for this is usually "unlocked". I'm using Replicant on an S3 i9300 that was bought unlocked and I didn't have any trouble; the model number has no particular relation to whether the phone was unlocked prior to purchase.
