new phone - use existing sim

This will sound daft to most of you.

My wife wants a new mobile phone but wants just to slip in her existing sim card, which is on an orange virgin tariff.
Can she buy any phone and do this or does it have it have to be an orange phone or a virgin phone.
If a phone is "unlocked" does this mean it will take any sim?

I have been looking at Tesco website and they all seem to be phones attached to a specific provider.
