Re: Strange auto sim lock!
Someone was reading from "Alice in Wonderland", not "Fixing cellphone problems". If the phone loses connection with the carrier,m it re-establishes connection as soon as it starts receiving a signal again.

If the phone isn't working because of a SIM-lock, bring it into a store owned by your carrier (not an independent store that sells accounts on your carrier, like Radio Shack) and ask them if they can check it out. The SIM card may have become corrupt. (If they charge you $1 for that, you're being robbed.)
If a phone became SIM-locked (whatever you're referring to by that phrase, but anything that required the user to do anything), I wouldn't be able to drive with my phone activated. I drive through an area that "picket-fences", it gets and loses connection every few feet for about a mile. The cellphone system is designed to handle a phone losing connection without your having to do anything.
Are you sure you don't mean that the screen was locked with a code? (That's the lock screen and has nothing to do with the SIM. As to why it would change from swipe to PIN on its own is anyone's guess, but I'd ask them to replace the phone. Something's wrong with it.)
